Se déplacer à Toulouse en transports en commun

Public transport in Toulouse

By metro, bus or tram, the public transport network in the Toulouse metropolitan area allows tourists and locals to get around very easily with one single ticket.

Tisséo is the company that runs public transport services in Toulouse.

The metro

With its 2 metro lines, A and B, Toulouse benefits from a very fast and comfortable means of travel, guaranteed to be free of traffic jams! The Toulouse metro is an automatic, driverless metro with secure platforms.
The many stations in the city centre allow you to enjoy the sites and museums without tiring your feet too much.

Car parks + metro: a winning combination if you want a hassle-free visit.

Some metro stations offer free parking to passengers under certain conditions. Located on strategic routes, you can park your car and travel around the city by bus and metro. Wherever you are in Toulouse, there will always be a bus stop or metro station nearby to facilitate your return journey and get you back to your vehicle.

These park-and-ride facilities are indicated by a blue sign with the P+R logo.

Park-and-ride facilities for line A: Balma-Gramont : 1521 spaces - Argoulets : 1009 spaces - Jolimont : 284 spaces - Arènes : 605 spaces – Basso-Cambo : 230 spaces (multi-storey car park currently under construction).

Tramway

In Toulouse, the T2 is not a version of the Terminator but a tramway line. There are 2 of them.

Both lines have the same terminus: Palais de Justice Station, which is directly connected to line B of the metro. On the other side of the line, the T1 serves the Aeroscopia Aeronautics Museum as well as the new Exhibitions Park and Convention Centre, MEETT, whilst line T2 serves Toulouse-Blagnac international airport.

These 2 tramway lines provide a link with line A of the metro at Arènes station, which will take you to the main city centre stations such as Capitole or Jean-Jaurès.

Bus

More than a hundred bus routes criss-cross the city and the surrounding area, providing a very efficient service to the entire region. Like everywhere else, buses display their number and destination on the front of the vehicle.

Linéo buses are double "accordion" buses that provide a link between the communes of the metropolitan area and the metro or tram stations. They are marked with an L and the bus number. With very frequent service, these buses bring the whole metropolitan area within a stone's throw of the Place du Capitole, offering passengers a high quality of service and comfort.
