Travelling on Bus No 100 to Monaco

Hi, I will be traveling from Nice to Monte Carlo on 29 June (Saturday) on the bus no 100. I'd like to know if there are any on board displays that let you know when your stop is arriving. If not, do they stop at each stop on the timetable or only on request. Just wondering how I'd know if I've reached my destination stop, as I am traveling there for the first time. Any pointers from experienced folks? Thanks!

Some of the 100 buses have an electronic display- which may not be switched on or may be out of synch ,operating in the wrong direction

Bus stops have names, so look out for the stops that are earlier in the route than the one you want and ring the bell once the bus has passed the stop immediately before the one you want

Selkie can confirm this information since some things have changed recently with the Nice buses. I copied it from the Rick Steve's France 2013 iBook that my husband downloaded on my iPad and his iPod. We like to travel light so we downloaded books for our Europe trip that is only a month away. Downloading is more convenient to carry and find things in and half the price of the paper guidebooks.

“Arrival in Monaco

By Bus from Nice and Villefranche-sur-Mer: Bus riders need to pay attention, since stops are not announced. Cap d’Ail is the town before Monaco, so be on the lookout after that (the last stop before Monaco is called Cimetière). You’ll enter Monaco through the modern cityscape of high-rises of the Fontvieille district. When you see the rocky outcrop of old Monaco, be ready to get off.

There are three stops in Monaco. Listed in order from Nice, they are Place d’Armes (in front of a tunnel at the base of Monaco-Ville’s rock), Stade Nautique (closest stop to Monaco-Ville on the port), and Office de Tourisme (near the casino and the TI on Avenue d’Ostende). The Place d’Armes stop is the best starting point, and is the only signed stop (otherwise, verify with locals that you’re at the right stop). From the Place d’Armes stop, you can walk up to Monaco-Ville and the palace (10 minutes straight up), or catch a quick local bus (line #1 or #2” Excerpt From: Rick Steves & Steve Smith. “Rick Steves' France 2013.” Avalon Travel, 2012. iBooks.

SelkieNice, could you clarify something for us, please? On the timetable, it looks like there are six stops ... But don't the stops depend on which direction you're traveling? (Also, why are two of the stops bright blue?). I hope these don't seem like dumb questions ... But I've been pondering them for a while now ... Thanks in advance for responding.

On the 100 bus route, the stops are listed by name for each direction.

On other bus routes [less well travelled] there will be arrows for direction of travel and a half circle for the side where the bus stops

SelkieNice,

Beginning August 1 we will be staying west of Place Massena and just south of Rue Massena at 11 Rue Paradis. If you want to see the location on google maps go to this hotel link and click on "Located in.the heart of Nice". http://www.lepetittrianon.fr/accueil-en.php

We thought the best way to get from the train station to the hotel is to take the tram along Av Jean Medecin to Rue Massena and then it would be just a short walk to our hotel. We travel only with my small back pack which at times I sit on my husbands small roller suitcase and handwash a few things every couple of days.

We are 4 active seniors traveling together. Is there a bus or tram stop close to our hotel that will take us to where Bus 100 begins at Segurane and if yes, which bus # and direction? Thank you for answering our Nice questions!
