The parking area next to La Caserne is 2.5km south of Mont St-Michel. To get from there to the Mont, you can either walk or take the shuttle bus (free with your car park ticket) that lets you off 300m from the Mont’s main gate. Shuttles run 24 hours a day – regularly from 7am to 1am, when summoned by phone after that. Count on spending 45 minutes to an hour to get from the parking lot to the abbey. A shuttle bus (€2.80) also runs from the train station in Pontorson to Mont St-Michel.
A horse-drawn carriage from the La Caserne Tourist Office area to Mont St-Michel is €5.30.
