Bus from Aix-en-Provence to Nice

Hi all,

I'm trying to plan a trip with my parents and boyfriend through southern France and am looking for some guidance.

Is there a bus that goes from Aix-en-Provence to Nice? I have seen similar questions in the forum before but they are relating more to the airport which is not an issue for us, we actually want to get into Nice town.

I know there is a train but we are doing a lot of trains on this journey and thought that a bus might mix things up somewhat.

Thanks for your help

Kelly

Hi, this is I think the timetable for the line that SelkieNice recommends www.infociao.com/pdf/reseaux/FH%2020_1.pdf

You might want to send her (or him, I think it's her) a pm to check, I haven't actually used this line myself.

I'm female =]

The bus from Aix stands up well to the train = the express buses take about 2 hours 20 minutes for 28 euros 50

You will probably see more if the countryside from the train if that is an issue for you as the express coaches take the fastest roads

train from Aix centre takes around 3 and 3/4 hours and costs about 35 euros single [ faster if you go direct from Aix TGV station but still between 2 and a half and 3 hours for around 35 euros.

The bus is sounding like a great options for us. Where would we buy tickets and will we need to do this in advance?

Thanks

Just an update. We decided to take the bus which worked out fine. There was actually a summer pass available (info-ler.fr/doc/…flyer-pass-ete-ler.pdf) which meant that buying two of these passes was cheaper than buying 4 one way tickets to Nice. It looks like quite a good pass and made us wish that we had allocated more time in Aix during which we could have utilised the rest of these tickets.

You must make a reservation on the bus as well as buying the ticket. This can be done in the ticket office at the bus station or on the phone number listed on the brochure.
