If you’re spending the summer months in Bordeaux, surely you’ll want to head to the beach to get the sand between your toes. So, if you’re an unfortunate soul who doesn’t own or have access to a car perhaps the Beach Bus could be for you?
With destinations including Lacanau, Cap Ferret, Le Porge, Montalivet, Hostens and Hourtin your dreams of spending the day catching some rays could be a possibility.
The city is offering a promotional rate of €2 for a day round trip on the TransGironde lines.
Only people under 20 and families (1 adult + 1 child minimum) living in the CUB can qualify for the set tariff. Children under 5 ride for free. The lines 601 (Bordeaux – Lége Cap Ferret) and 702 (Bordeaux – Lacanau) are accessible to people with disabilities, although they will need to make a reservation by telephone prior the day before travelling (Info Service: 0974 500 033).
How does it work?
If you commune participates you’ll need to visit your Town Hall to get your own Beach Bus card. You’ll need proof of residence and photo identification to purchase your ticket on board.
If you don’t fit into the categories listed above, the full price is around €11 each way.
