By Bus Lignes d’Azur buses

The platforms are specially broadened to 3.50m and raised to 21cm to facilitate access to buses. Tactile ground surface indicators and road surface markings provide guidance to enable the visually impaired and persons with reduced mobility to get on and off buses. On the timetables for lines 3/7/9/10/22/23, a PRM pictogram indicates which stops are accessible to persons with reduced mobility. Bus lines 9 (Port de Nice/Nice la Plaine) and 10 (Port de Nice/Saint Laurent du Var railway station) Bus line 7 accessible on main thoroughfares (Gambetta and Cessole) The buses on these lines are equipped with a flat floor and retractable pallet. Useful Information: You must stamp your ticket every time you board the bus.

>

By Tramway

Equipped with a built-in lower platform on the same level as the station platform, the Tram is fully accessible and guarantees access with no steps. Such direct access is further improved by extra-wide doors identified by the PRM pictogram. Security is ensured at each stop: spacious platforms, gently sloping ramps for access to the platforms, appropriate lighting, ticket machines accessible for wheelchair users, scrolling light panels, tactile ground surface indicators. Signs in braille, positioned above the screen of each of the automatic ticket machines located on the platforms at each station, provide the name of the station and the direction of the line. Inside the tram, the stations are announced by jingles and on scrolling light panels. Useful Information: You must stamp your ticket every time you board the tram.
