Transport

Renowned for its wide range of public transport facilities, La Rochelle makes it easy for you to travel around the city and its suburbs by bus, and you can also combine this with other means of transport  (bus +bicycle , or the water taxi etc.). The ‘Pass’ Transport’ travel card entitles students to reduced price bus travel. This can facilitate your travel to the School which is located 2.5km from the Old Port, at the heart of the Les Minimes district.

The two bus routes which go from the city centre to the School are called ILLICO 3 (get off at the bus stopcalled Europe) and ILLICO 4 (get off at the bus stopcalled La Sole). Buses usually run every 10 minutes.

A free bike rental service is organized by the City of La Rochelle. The bikes are available at the city Tourist Office. The first two hours of rental are free of charge.

You can also use the solar-powered sea bus which connects the Old Port with the Les Minimes Marina
