Getting Around

Public Transport
Buses are the only form of public transport available in Cannes and a number of companies provide transit services. These include STU de Cannes Bus Azur (tel: (04) 9345 2008; fax: (04) 9306 6716), Bus Azur (tel: (04) 9339 1871), CTM Cannes La Bocca (tel: (04) 9390 9292) and Beltrame (tel: (04) 93496090). The Handibus service is for the disabled.

Buses stop at the two coach stations, at place de l'Hôtel de Ville and place Cornut-Gentille. Other stops include the port, railway station and town hall. The network includes the nearby towns of La Bocca, Le Cannet and Mandelieu, La Napoule. Buses run every 15 minutes, 0545-2045.

Single tickets can be purchased on the bus. A carnet of ten tickets and a week pass can be purchased at the coach station or on the bus.

Taxis are centrally run, reliable and arrive within about five minutes anywhere in the city centre. Drivers are generally honest and will usually discuss the stars they have chauffeured. Taxis can be hailed at taxi stations or ordered by telephone from Taxis de Cannes (tel: (04) 9299 2727). Tipping is not expected but is appreciated.

Driving in the City
Driving in Cannes is rarely a frustrating experience. Traffic jams are few and far between, there are several car parks surrounding the city centre and orientation is relatively easy,  the rue d'Antibes is one of the few one-way streets. Since the recent improvements at boulevard Carnot, which leads from the Croisiere to the entrance to the motorway, access to and from the city has improved. There is only one major pedestrianised street, the rue Meynadier. The only times that tourists should beware of driving in Cannes, is during the film festival, when roads are blocked from 1800 onwards, and during major congresses.

The main car parks very in price per hour and include Uniparc, place Vauban, place du Marché Forville, Palais des Festivals, Pantiero Esplanade and Hotel Gray d'Albion.
