Lyon is the second or third? biggest city of France.

Transport

Find info on hitchhiking at Hitchwiki.

Metro with a glass door at the entrance. Tramways are blackrideable. A single ticket costs 1.80 EUR and is valid for 1 hour for all the transport.

Blackriding is possible. The control may be dressed in civil, too.

The city also has a widely used public bicycle system. You need a bank card and probably some payment. Then the first hour of using a bicycle is free.

The city has a TGV train station - connection to Paris and Spain.

Food

Find info on dumpster diving at Trashwiki.

Check trashwiki. Get up early and go in the morning! (check trashwiki for specific info.) There is a lot the city has to offer in those few hours when the bins are outside. Franprix shops have nice things in bins.


Internet connectivity

Hackerspaces around Lyon.

Shopping centre Part-Dieu near train station has a sitting place in the bottom floor with many electric plugs and wifi (which you can catch from nearby mcdonalds). There were already many people sitting and using their devices.

Busking

Busking in Lyon is possible. Police seems to be not bothering anybody. During weekends it's quite crowded around Place de la Republique and Place Bellecour. It's the city centre and shopping street and there are already some local buskers - but in April 2016 the competition doesn't seem too big. A place Terreux is a good spot, too. People were suggesting old town and some terraces with view. Untested.

The earnings are average (very subjective observation).
