Bus

The départemental bus company, TLC (02 54 58 55 44) no longer has any sort of information office. Line 2 links Blois’ train station and the TUB information office with Chambord (40 minutes, two to four daily Monday to Saturday); a good option is to take the 12.15pm bus from Blois and the 6.46pm bus back. TLC line 4 to Romorantin stops at Cheverny (€2.40, 30 minutes, two to four daily). The tourist office has timetables. TLC also runs chateau tours.
