Public transport from Nice to Mercure Sophia Antipolis

I am traveling to Nice for a conference at the Mercure the first week in February. I would rather not have a car if I don't have to. Is there an inexpensive way to get from Nice to this hotel by public transport? Thank you in advance for any replies

Be careful to note the 230 stops on the promenade des anglais if you are travelling from there. When planning to use it I mistakenly thought that the bus stopped at every stop on the promenade. The stops are clearly listed on the timetable, Albert 1er, Gambetta Promenade etc.

Do you know if there is any other bus service that works on weekends from the Nice Airport to Sophia Antipolis? Thank you in advance.

on a saturday , you could get train for nice st augustin to biot gare , then envibus number 10 - last bus passes the Biot station around 20.09.

on a sunday the last bus is a little bit earlier at 19.45 and i doubt you could get to the statiin for the earlier train [at 19.17] that would meet this earlier bus unless you have no luggage.

If I were , i would buy a print at home ticket from Nice st augustin to Antibes here [Biot gare isn't one of the options but get off there, its the stop before antibes] to save messing around with trying to get tickets at the airport or station
