Buses are infrequent and irregular with very limited service at weekends and on holidays.

 The central area has been pedestrianised. Niort is a walkable town, but if you need it a free bus runs around the central area every ten minutes on weekdays and Saturdays. It also runs on Sunday afternoons in summer. Details in the local bus website as above.
