Getting around

Public transport

Take a ride, even just for fun, on Montpellier’s hi-tech, high-speed, leave-your-car-at-home tram. Like city buses, it’s run by TaM (04 67 22 87 87; www.tam-way.com in French; 6 rue Jules Ferry) and runs until midnight. Regular buses run until about 8.30pm daily.

Single-journey tickets, valid for bus or tram, cost €1.30. A one-day pass/10-ticket carnet costs €3.10/10.50. Pick them up from newsagents or any tram station.

TaM Vélo (04 67 22 87 22; 27 rue Maguelone; 9am-7pm Mon-Sat, 9am-12.30pm & 2-7pm Sun), an admirable urban initiative, rents town bikes and electric bikes per hour/half-day/full day for €1.50/3/6.
