There is reason to believe that going by a private means get you to places more conviniently. As I said, I was in Brest first time by air, and I couldnt get eneough of this region..so, I had to do it again by road. It is the wise thing to do.

Buzz now has a daily flight to Brest direct from London Stansted. Because Buzz is a "no-frills" airline, the prices are good. Flights are usually on time but considering it is the same plane that does the Marseilles-Brest route, a delay on the arrival from Marseilles will have a knock on effect on your return flight to Stansted.
Note that those flights have been suspended for the duration of the month of April 2003 because Ryanair just bought Buzz. They will resume in May under the Ryanair brand.

Bibus, the local bus company has an extensive network that will take you to most places in Brest and around. If you plan to take it a lot, buy a carnet of 10 tickets from the specialised shops or cafes that have the bibus sign.

The SNCF (national railways) has several daily high speed trains to Brest. It takes 4 hours from Gare Montparnasse and there is no chance you'll miss the stop because Brest is where the train terminates.

By car is the best method to get here and to get around here. By bus is also possible, there are regular busses that go to the beach places around here.
By car or bus. Ofcourse I had to go on a horse again ;)

The local transport is very good, not that I try it but saw it working,and the frequency even in a holiday weekend was great.
There are lines of tramways and buses zigzagging the city at all times, and the stops are very easy especially the tramways. The service starts like about 6h and last until midnight in some stations.
Along rue de Siam and Jean Jaurés is magnificent.
1,35€ tickets gets you all over, and 10 tickets are 11€ regular prices, there are reduce for large families etc, but for the tourist the reg prices are good.
you can even order your tickets online prepaid credit here
here are all the bus lines and the A tramway stops
