All of the University of Bordeaux campuses are easily accessible. Choose the means of transport most suited to your needs, whether active mobility, ride-sharing or public transportation, etc.
In Bordeaux, the public transport network (TBM) offers a range of options that users can combine to their liking to enjoy city life without the hassles of a car.
Lines A, B, C and D operate throughout the week, every 10 minutes on average, serving the majority of the Bordeaux campuses.
13 bus lines serve the campus and also intersect with the tram lines.
Mobibus, a transport-on-demand service for people with reduced mobility is also available.
The TransGironde network (in French) operates as a complement to the TBM network. Five lines serve Talence and in particular the Peixotto campus.

There are also frequent connections with other Nouvelle-Aquitaine towns thanks to the regional trains.
Regional trains also serve the Pessac railway station.

Whether you ride your own bike or a V³ from the TBM network, the campuses are all equipped with parking areas for bikes and some of them even have air pump stations.
