Fastest way to get to Uzes from Nimes train station?

Anyone know how much a Taxi would charge for a trip from Nimes railways station to Uzes? Thanks! is this the fastest and most convenient way to travel? We are from USA and if I rent/hire a car, is it easy to drive in France's countryside?

The fastest way would be by car/taxi. Taxi can be expensive (dont know how much, but then if you have 4 persons ....)

If you will travel more from town to town, renting a car would be better. Most cars are manual, and driving in countryside is not hard. A GPS definitely would help. If you can bring your own it would be better. We weren't able to rent one in our location.

A taxi would certainly be the quickest way. Taking buses usually means a wait in Nimes; we usually pass the time having a coffee at a nearby cafe. Buses are mainly run for pupils to get to and from school and colege; they run fairly regularly on weekdays in term time, but weekends mean fewer buses, as do holiday periods.

I recently asked an Uzes taxi company called Nabais for a price for someone on this forum. They quoted around 40 euros for 2 people and 2 suitcases from Nimes railway station to an address in Uzes. I would imagine it would cost more for a larger group/more luggage. They only do pre-booked pick-ups. Taxis can be found at the station, but I don't know the cost. Any tip would be on top of the price quoted.

Here's a link to local buses:

www.edgard-transport.fr/horaires_ligne/…

Bus B21, Nimes – Pont St Esprit and Bus E52, Nimes – St Ambroix pass through Uzes; you need to enter 'Gare Routiere' as the bus stop in Nimes, and 'Esplanade' for destination at Uzes, and the time you'll arrive at the station.

Tickets cost €1.50 per journey, which you buy from the driver, then cancel in a machine just to the side.

Actually the quickest way would be to have someone from Uzes pick you up, but I guess that isn't always an option (thanks GG!)

Seriously, the E52 is fairly quick and direct, the B21 will give you a more extended view of the lovely countryside...
