Public Transport

A public bus service links all parts of Brest to one another, and a train service is available from the central station for trips further afield. The main station for both is in the Place due 19eme RI. Public transportation tickets may be bought at ticket vending machines with either cash or card; day tickets with unlimited rides are available and may be a good idea for a full day of sightseeing.
