Boussens is the closest station, 12 km away. You can book rail tickets on-line here. If you need help with the Toulouse-Boussens time table, feel free to contact me.

From Toulouse airport: Take Exit C from the baggage area and turn right into the Navette office once outside. A ticket to the train station costs 5€ and takes 25-40 minutes, depending on traffic. When the bus arrives at the station, go out to the main street in front of the terminal and look for the giant white train station marked “Toulouse Matabiau”. A ticket from Toulouse to Boussens costs around 11€ and takes just under an hour.
