Getting Around

Besançon is compact and easy to navigate.


VéloCité Besançon's credit-card-operated automatic bike-rental system has 30 pick-up and drop-off sites across the city. If your trip is under 30 minutes, it's free.


Since 2014 a two-line electric tram system has been sweeping through the northwestern part of old Besançon and over the Doubs to Battant (per journey €1.40). Line Two connects to the train station.
