Bayonne and the Basque Country agglomeration are making every effort to develop modes of transport which have the least possible impact on the environment. A concerted approach that today offers lots of alternatives for locals and tourists to get around.
Public transport :
Bayonne's public transport network is managed by Chronoplus, which promotes sustainable travel. All these mobilities are grouped under the name "TkikTxak" in reference to the expression used in pelota. Today, Bayonne has four public transport networks, making life easier for locals and visitors alike, and encouraging sensible, responsible travel.
You too can find the alternative that suits you best !
For several years, Bayonne has been committed to reducing car traffic in its centre. Easily recognisable thanks to their orange or green colour, electric shuttles crisscross the entire city. They’re free and operate every day from 7.30am to 7.30pm except Sundays and public holidays.
LThe busiest places in the centre and must-see sites are served every ten minutes: museums, Saint-André church, cathedral and Château-Vieux are all, of course, on the route. A second route now connects the Saint-esprit district to that of the Arènes. Leave your car in the car parks around the city and explore the central area at will ! To monitor your shuttles live : Download the Zenbus app.
Txalupa, the hybrid boat that provides the connection on the Adour between Boucau/Tarnos, Bayonne city centre, and up to the beaches of Anglet in summer. A few minutes on the water to fully enjoy your stay or your daily life when the sunny days arrive.

As for travel times, allow : - 3 minutes from Bayonne Town Hall to Pont Grenet - 11 minutes from Pont Grenet to Cale du Boucau - 7 minutes from Cale du Boucau to the Anglet Breakwater
Unique, responsible journeys, with no traffic jams, with less pollution!
All over the city, dozens of buses crisscross our roads to serve as many stops as possible. In Bayonne and its surroundings, every day, 16 regular lines take you from one town to another. Boucau, Tarnos, Mouguerre, Anglet, Biarritz and Bidart, the city has everything in place to ensure a quality network which combines ease of access and speed.
A line 1 now occupied by the city’s Tram'Bus that’s 100% connected ! Between Bayonne, Anglet and Biarritz, covering 12 kilometres and more than 30 stations, the Tram'Bus is accessible to all, from 5.30am to half-past midnight, and until 2.30am from Thursday to Saturday. Practical, reliable, modern and environmentally friendly, the Tram'Bus makes daily life easier with convenient time slots. The latest addition in recent times is a second line partially in service that serves the stops from Tarnos to Bassussary.
