    How to get in and out ,Montpellier

    by gwened Updated Sep 29, 2014

    Montpellier is a very avant garde city with modern public transportation and nice roads. Here is my take on it.
    Montpellier is link by autoroutes A9 and A75, and four exits No 29, 30, 31 and 32. the exit or sortie Nord (n°28) gets you to the Serre Amazonienne, Zoo de Lunaret, hospitals and faculties in Universities (sortie Vendargues). The exit Est (n°29) :takes you to the historic center, Office de Tourisme, Corum, Millénaire, Zénith Sud, Odysseum, and Parc des Expositions de Montpellier. The exit Sud (n°30) :takes you to the train station or Gare Montpellier Saint-Roch, and district of Près d'Arènes, and the exit Ouest (n°31) takes you to the stadiums or Stade Yves du Manoir, and stade de la Mosson

    On the road you get road condition information here to see before the trip.
    http://inforoute.herault.fr/
    Some Streets are now done both ways, such as quai du Verdanson between the Streets rue Henri Serre and place du 11 Novembre, and coming back by rue Henri Serre ; bear in mind many in the city center is pedestrian only such as district Ecusson, and the areas of Antigone and Saunerie that you can see on any map of the city.
    Vinci park provides several underground garages that I used when in town such as Foch Préfecture,Beaux Arts, Europa, and Triangle . there are many others. The city tells you at the bottom at the page in a Google format to find them all
    http://www.montpellier.fr/196-le-stationnement-a-montpellier.htm
    you have parking relays to the tramway system as such
    Tramway line 1 at stations :
    Mosson * (for info: 04 67 91 42 74, mondays to Saturdays 7h- 20h),

    The train station is undergoing enlargement and improvements but still open normally. The station is right in the city center and only 200 meters from Place de la Comédie. The Gare Montpellier Saint-Roch is interconnected with four lines of tramways and the bus lines No 6,7,8,11,12, 16. SNCF site in English with info on train station here
    http://www.gares-en-mouvement.com/en/frmpl/accueil/

    Vélomagg is the bike rental network in town. 1000 bikes from half an hour and up, handle by the city public transport system TAM.

    General public transport in Languedoc-Roussillon

    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.

    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

    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 !!!

    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.
