Getting around the Aude by bus

 ...is not easy.

A sparse network of bus routes connects the larger towns with the surrounding towns and villages. At best,  routes have only four or five buses a day, none run on Sundays and public holidays. Some buses are for schoolchildren and students only. Some routes are operated 'on demand' meaning that intending users must telephone on the previous weekday to reserve a seat.Buses on the Aude system have a flat fare of €1
