Better transport connections

Here at Monaco IQ, we're great advocates of public transport and regularly report stories about local bus and rail services.

In addition to traditional forms of transport, the Principality also boasts a solar powered "bateau bus" (boat bus) that carries travelers from one side of the port to the other. It became a year-round service in December 2008 after transporting 52 000 passengers during the year, twice the number carried in 2007. A third of its users are locals.

Public transport just gets better

Trains, complaints and passenger woes

If you work in Monaco, the chances are that you'll be living in one of the cities or towns in the surrounding region. About 20% of the Principality's 45000 make the journey every day from Nice, and I used to be one of them.
