You're arrived in Bordeaux after flying, driving, catching the train or transfer bus, but how do you find your way around whilst you're here? 

Run by Tram et Bus de la Cub (or tbc for short), Bordeaux has a comprehensive bus network enabling you to get within a short distance of pretty much anywhere in the city. Books of tickets or travelcards are valid on the buses and trams.

Along with the bus service Bordeaux has an excellent three-line tram system (Lines A, B and C) which run east to west and north to south linking the city to the suburbs. It is run by Tram et Bus de la Cub (or tbc for short) so you can buy a book of tickets which can be used on both.
