Free buses in Monaco on Saturday 4th July for the 1st stage of the Tour de France

30-06-2009


On the occasion of the Tour de France’s “grand départ” from Monaco on Saturday 4th July 2009, Monegasque buses will be free. "This major cycling event in the Principality will generate record crowds, with more than three times the number of spectators than those during the Grand Prix expected along the individual time trial route. The SNCF will be setting up additional train services in order to enable fans of this legendary race to reach Monaco from the towns of the neighbouring region” points out Patrice Cellario, Director for Prospective Studies, Urbanism and
Mobility.

From Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th July, the Monaco Bus Company will be implementing a service specifically adapted to the various activities connected with the Tour de France in town: on Thursday early evening for the presentation of the teams and Friday for the rally around the harbour. On Saturday 4th July, the day of the individual time trial, only routes 1, 5 and 6 will be operating with itineraries using boulevard du Larvotto (see map enclosed).
Furthermore, the bus-boat will be running as usual (every 20 minutes), much appreciated for crossing Port Hercule. Last but not least “the evening and night bus service (operating until 4 a.m.) will also be increased in order to allow everybody to take full advantage of the special party evening in the Principality”, says Roland de Rechniewski, Director of the CAM, adding “users are asked to use the various public lifts which will enable them to reach all areas in the Principality easily from the bus stops of these special routes” (see online Monaco Malin map). On Sunday 5th July the bus service will be modified during the whole morning up to 2 p.m. for the start of the second stage.

Visitors are also kindly requested to stagger their arrival and departure to and from the Principality. The TER service and CAM evening service will be adapted and if necessary extended so as to take home all visitors.

Access to the Principality will also be very restricted: inter-urban buses will not be able to enter the Principality. To reach Nice, passengers on routes 100, 110 and 112 will be dropped off and embark at the “cemetery” bus stop (Wurtemberg roundabout) with a connection using the CAM’s route 6 which will take them across the Principality.
