    General public transport in Languedoc-Roussillon

    by gwened Updated May 20, 2014

    I do the car here when visiting after perhaps a long train ride. There is a myriad of opportunities for the visitor I try to name here,list on the most but not exclusive.

    First for trains in the region use the TER site for more choices,and only on the tGV segments you need reservation.

    in the pyrenées orientales you have the bus system in the regional council site

    petit train de Montpellier

    by gwened Written Apr 22, 2014

    a picturesque quick instructive way to see a city for coming back for the most you like is the petit train or little train found in many cities of France. Here in Montpellier is so nice, coming out of the place de la comédie that is recommended with kids especially.

    more info here from the tourist office
    http://www.ot-montpellier.fr/en/annuaire/guided-tour-the-small-train.html

    more in contact from the petit train site;enjoy the ride.

    Bus Schedules- Aude

    by GentleSpirit Written Oct 12, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The easiest way to find bus schedules is to go to the website of the Conseil Generale of whatever department you are researching. Bus schedules and lines are coordinated (and contracted) by the local government.

    For Aude department, the bus schedules are not easy to find.
    The link below is probably the easiest, giving you the ability to look through the lines and to search by town name. Sadly there are no route maps on Aude's website.

    Exploring Languedoc-Airports

    by GentleSpirit Written Oct 11, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are coming in by air the easiest place to start would probably be Toulouse, the largest airport in the region with the biggest number of international connections.

    There are airports in Carcassonne, Montpelier, Nimes, Beziers, Perpignan though they are much smaller. It is these that are best served by the discount flights from the UK and Ireland.

    drive Paris to Trausse

    by gwened Updated Jul 7, 2013

    my little local twist to it.

    driving is great, best way to travel and see things. About 619 kms from Paris by road and on the area of near Toulouse where wife's family comes from; we of course, visit often during the year.

    Coming from Toulouse you are in my area, take road D813 from the Toulouse rocade or beltway, this is the route d'Aquitaine, see more than autoroutes.Past wonderful Castanet-Toulousan, castelnaudary,go around beltway at Carcassone (or go into town,fortified) , rocade nord take the D620 into Caunes Minervois, and there take right into road D115 into Trausse. Lovely country all the way.

    there are other versions if you like, taking the N126 once you reach the rocade in toulouse, go north towards D680 and hook with the N126 direction Puylaurens,you past just south of Castres, lovely town to visit too, great Museum of Goya's paintings;and great rugby town too! here you bear right on the D612 towards Mazamet,at Sauveterre take the D88 towards, Lespinassiere,Citou, and the aforemention Caunes Minervois,taking the D115 to Trausse.

    GReat driving i assure you. Happy Motoring !!!

    parking /meters-Carcassonne

    by gwened Written Apr 15, 2012

    you have several ways in France.
    YOu can still find coins meters in some towns, and other require the moneo card a system in our debit card for small change and use in parking garages.
    A credit card with pin and chip will work otherwise need to find a coin machine, usually at the end of the parking.

    Some allow you to enter taking a magnetic tape card and you pay on the way out before getting to your card.

    In inner cities we have parking zones and some only for residents, its typical call a blue parking card but it comes in different colors and shapes. You can get one from a tabac sundries stores ,a supermarket, the mayor's office if resident, etc. These are free and allowed you to park for free on a zone timing basis. Some for as little of 30 minutes free and other zone for as much as 4 hrs for free.

    For you the best way is to find a parking garage in Carcassonne, they will have an attendant who will swipe your foreign card at the office accueil before getting to your car. there you have by Avenue Maréchal Joffre near gare EFFIA parking very good. Blvd Barbés near Cathedral St Michel, or my favorite parking des jacobins at Rue Grignan on the other side of blvd Barbés and still close but away enough to avoid congestions.
    Very easy
    This has the transport in carcassonne right at the bottom you have info on 3 parking including the one i recommend des jacobins
    http://www.carcassonne.org/carcassonne2.nsf/vueTitre/docVisiterTransport1?opendocument&FR&Visiter&Informations pratiques&2&Informations pratiques

    Hope it helps and happy motoring, great area.

    city and region of Montpellier bus travel

    by gwened Written Feb 27, 2012

    the bus is economical and will see the sights if public transport is your way.
    Yes public transport is very good, especially in cities. YOu buy the ticket from bus driver or go to a tabac kiosk authorised and buy the carnet of 10. See it here for the city bus and tramway as well as surrounding cities in the metro area of agglomeration.
    http://www.montpellier-agglo.com/tam/page.php?id_rubrique=29

    If you plan on going further away from the city you are in department 34 Herault and they have a regional site at
    http://www.herault.fr/routes-transports/contact/herault-transport
    in French of course, you have in the window box schedules and tariffs,and email for specific questions. You can get a carnet of 10 trips here too.

    Hope it helps

    little yellow train

    by tompt Written Sep 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Throughout the year the little yellow train climbs up the Têt valley from Villefranche to Latour-de-Carol.
    Built at the beginning of the twentieth century to relieve the isolation of the high catalan plateaus, this 63km-long railway line is the highest in France. Its station of Bolquère is located at an altitude of 1,592 metres (over 5,200 feet). Electrical power is supplied to the trains by a third rail. The train travels at an average speed of 30km per hour (about 19 mph). You can ride in one of the wooden carriages or in one of its open-air carriages. There are over 650 extraordinary constructions along the line, including the remarkable Séjourné viaduct (65 metres above ground level) and the spectacular Gisclard railway bridge, which is suspended 80 metres above the river Têt.
