Buses from Caen-Ouistreham port to Caen train station.

Hi friends,

Sorry if this topic already been asked before. I need clear guide on this puzzle. Me and my wife will be arriving by ferry at Caen-Ouistreham port at 7.30am. Then we need to catch a train which schedule at 8.48am at Caen train station (Gare de Caen). As we google around, it seems that we need to take a bus from port to the station. My question is :-

1) What is the bus schedule from port to train station?

2) How long it will take from port to train station? Does it fit with my schedule mentioned?

3) How much the bus ticket will be?

4) If we decided to take a taxi, how much the cost? we would like to avoid scam price by taxi drive.

Looking forward your generous respond on this query. God bless all :)

It's a bit tight, the bus takes 15 mins, but may not leave until 30mins after the ferry docks. Fare is just a few euros, but you may be better off with a taxi at around 30 euros. Taxis are expensive, but regulated and not a 'scam'.

Ask Brittany ferries, they will give you a definitive answer.

Hi,

Thanks for the respond. If we arrive at 7.30am and bus will only leave after 30mins, mean they will take off at 8.00am. As journey to train station will take 15mins, mean we will arrive at 8.15am. Our train will take off at 8.48am.

So do you think taking bus is better here? I don't see it tight. Please correct me if i'm wrong here :)

Yes, I'd intend getting the bus, but have the taxi as a 'plan B' in case the timings slip.

You need bus line 61.You can download the timetables from Twisto, the Caen area transport service, from their website:

twisto.fr/520-Horaires-en-telechargement.html

I would double-check this shortly before you travel just in case it gets changed.
