Public transportation in Bordeaux

Hi all,

What do you think about the means of transportation in Bordeaux ?

Is the network of means of transportation well developed?
What modes of transport are available?

Do you use them?

How much is a fare?

Are they relatively safe?

What is the mean of transportation you use the most in Bordeaux?

Thanks in advance for participating!

Hiya Armand,

I use the Tram in Bordeaux everyday and I have to say I think it's a great system.

From what I can tell, before the city had the tram it was car and bus central. Within the old city you can quickly understand that this would have created a major mess of things.

The tram is clean and still reasonably priced. My only complaints are that the trams usually over flow during rush hour and the air con doesn't seem to work that well when it's full. Ideal world stuff...

The trams are safe (as the majority of Bordeaux) but obviously late on Thursday, Friday & Saturday nights there can be the occasional incident.

Otherwise, there are buses if the tram doesn't reach the out skirts of Bordeaux. These also seem to be pretty efficient.

I don't mean to spam, but I wrote an article out this on my blog, if you are interested: http://bordeauxexpats.blogspot.com/2011 … amway.html
