Bus station demolition news

As previously mentioned, the bus station in Nice will shut definitively on the 31st december 2010 and will be demolished starting in january 2011.

This is the current info on where buses will leave and depart from after 1st jan 2011 - there will no doubt be refinements and changes and the full info for all routes isn't available yet

Most buses will be starting and leaving from the open plan bus station area currently called station jc bermond which is between jean jaures and felix faure

eg monaco 100 and 100x antibes/cannes 200, st paul de vence 400, vence 94 , sophia antipolis 230

grasse 500

buses to the high country will start and end from the gare sncf /nice ville station - isola 2000 750, valberg 770, st martin vesubie 730, auron 740

bus 98 will start and end from riquer train station at place Banqui -should be good news for folk staying up at acropolis , palais des expositions etc and possibly the port but the new route has not been released yet

Saint-Jean d'Angély will be start of buses falicon 25 , Levens 89 Beausoleil 112, peille 116 luceram 340 and Aix-marseille , sisteron grenoble buses

I am guessing that the bus for Eze village bus 82 will start here as well since the 112 is leaving from there

international coaches will arrive and leave from Arenas - parking lindberg in the west of Nice near the airport

The huge Macdonalds and mc drive is transferring to a site near the autoroute

Many thanks. No more stepping off one bus and stepping onto another. I know these things tend to slip but is there any info on a likely date for completion of the new bus station and do you know the latest on the new tram line?

As ever, all the very best,

Bob

Thanx for posting this in the public interest Selkie.Are the intermediate stops of Route 98 from the airport likely to be affected eg Casino Ruhl?

Bob - all sorts of dates have been bandied about from 2013 to 2016 [it depends which phase of completion of a variety of phases is meant in the overal project of intergrated transport - eventually there should be nodes at st augustin and pont michel plus end of work at main statiion in nice etc line 2 of tramway etc not forgetting tunnelling the /metro/ part of the new tram line , moving the MIN wholesale market etc,

Also there is possible demolition of the shops at top left of jean medecin in order to create a passage way direct into nice station -not sure which phase this is likely to be Also there is talk of linking the train des pignes station and nice ville station more directly but i haven't heard what they mean by that exactly.

WirralScouse - i would guess that the bus will take rue arson, via port then cassini, then felix faure then usual route - hopefully details of new routes will be released a fair bit in advance

Thanks for posting about the gare closing. I'm in the process of making plans for next May and will be traveling with my 75 year old mother. I've been trying to plan things with the least amount of walking for her. There will be plenty anyway. Would the area that you mentioned above be by the parking garage? I'm just trying to figure out where it is. Thanks,

Cheri

hi Cheri -the bus stops are currently arranged around the square made up of traverse flandres et dunkerque, jean jaures , alle de la resistance et de la deportation and felix faure.. The roads with bus stops surround a public garden and the car park [whioch is also getting demolished] is on the traverse flandres side.

Closest tram stop is opera/vieille ville to the flandres dunkerque side .

Saint-Jean d'Angély is on the tram line

however, its really too early to know how it will all work out , when this hasn't been put into practise yet

i will know how the set up affects folk with mobility issues once the tranfer has been operational a few weeks.
