La ligne C est en quelque sorte le RER toulousain. C'est une ligne de trains, spéciaux, à cadence élevée, qui relie Toulouse à Colomiers.
Les rames sont très modernes, accessibles aux personnes handicapées, et mettent une quinzaine de minutes pour faire le parcours.
The C line is in a way the RER toulousain. It is a line of trains, special, to elevated cadence, that joins Toulouse in Colomiers.
The oars are very modern, accessible to the handicapped people, and put about fifteen minutes to make the course.
A Toulouse, la gare SNCF (des trains) est couramment appelée "Matabiau", nom du lieu où elle a été construite. Ce nom veut dire "tuer le taureau" (ce serait ici que le taureau utilisé pour le martyr de Saint-Cernin aurait été rattrapé et tué).
A coté de la Gare des trains, se situe la gare routière (autobus), et l'ensemble est desservie par une station de métro (Marengo-SNCF), et plusieurs lignes de bus.
C'est de là que partent les Noctambus, les bus de nuit.
In Toulouse, the SNCF station (of the trains) is called " Matabiau", name of the place where it has been constructed, fluently. This name means "to kill the bull" (it would be here that the bull used for the martyr of Saint-Cernin would have been caught up and killed).
To quoted of the Station of the trains, be located the road station (bus), and the whole is gone against by a station of subway (Marengo-SNCF), and several lines of bus.
It is of there that leaves the Noctambus, the buses of night.
Many French towns now offer a guided tour on a little train, and Toulouse was not exception.
It was an ideal way of seeing quite a lot of the town in the short time I had there, and convenient, in that it departed from outside the hotel.
Although the commentary was in French, I was provided with a (direct) written english translation, which gave me the backgound to the sites we passed.
