Solution

In July 2017, STU Bourges signed a new five-year agreement to operate and modernize the city's bus system. Since September 2017, the employees of this RATP Dev subsidiary have put their know-how to good use and Bourges residents now enjoy a brand new transit system. The 65 buses are more environmentally friendly, with half of them running on natural gas.

Locals can also discover the city and its events with three pilot routes that run every six minutes, a downtown shuttle, and a night-time route that leaves from the train station.

Here's what's new:

  • Stops at the business districts, hospitals, and universities
  • Summer 2018: introduction of reduced fares for special circumstances
  • Contactless ticketing
  • Switchover to eight natural gas buses and test of first hybrid NGV bus since April 2019
  • Sept 2019: launch of bike trial for medium and long term rental, CycloPlus.
