Park-and-ride in Tours

Leave your car in one of seven park-and-ride (P+R) sites in the greater Tours area and get around by bus or tram. Non-members enjoy beneficial rates, while Fil Bleu members have free access.

From 31 August: two types of P+R sites:

  • automated parking lots: open 27/7 all year, giving access to public transport rates + car park access at any time of the year.

Access:

    • Members validate their card at the validator before parking.
    • Non-members take a ticket at the parking lot entrance and validate it at the entrance barrier before parking. They then take the ticket to the P+R ticket machine. The ticket must be placed on the target zone of the machine to be updated with a P+R ticket with all-day access to the bus and tram network. Tickets for additional passengers can be added using the card machine.
  • Automated parking lot locations: Tranchée, Lac, Mayer, L'Heure Tranquille
  • guarded parking lots: open from 7am to 7:30pm (accessible from 6am for members) from Monday to Saturday all year, giving access to public transport rates + parking at any time of the year. Users may take their cars out the parking lot at any time of day or night, every day of the year.

Access:

    • Members present their card to the car guards
    • Non-members buy a P+R ticket from a car guard, giving them all-day access to the bus and tram network. The ticket can be reused on the network or in a guarded P+R.
  • Guarded parking locations: P+R Sagerie, P+R Vaucanson, P+R Jean Monnet

Cycling

Getting around by bicycle is an increasingly popular means of collective transport for users.

For motor-free mobility, cycling is a sustainable and inexpensive means of motor-free mobility with no direct CO2 emissions. It can also make an important contribution to public health and sustainable development, as it is environmentally-friendly and improves the quality of life in urban areas. Other than being a means of transport, cycling is an effective driver to help future generations tackle the challenges facing the planet.

However, as distances between home and the work place, schools or universities increase, users often need to resort to other means of transport (car, collective transport, motorbike or scooter, etc.) or simple go by foot over variable distances. It is for this reason that there needs to be a better interface between cycling and public transport.  

The public transport bodies in the Centre region of France are committed to improving this means of transport.
