In Hyères, a summer bus line between the port and Les Salins

New bus line, extended hours and services provided on Sundays, the tourist offer of the Mistral Network is expanding this summer with the birth of a shuttle.

Initiated by the Metropolis in order to develop and improve the tourist component in connection with the 2025 PDU (Urban Travel Plan), this new line is called L’Estivale and bears the number 65. The shuttle operates throughout the week from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. with a bus every hour.

Set up since May 31 and until October 3 inclusive with an attractive itinerary, this unique route starts at the P + R Arromanches 2 stop and stops at the Les Salins terminus.

A route that serves campsites, hotels, etc.

It serves campsites, hotels and seaside resorts on the Hyéroise east coast and is interconnected with the city’s port and airport.

By using this transport, the population can also access the piers of the Golden Islands. Valérie Canto, of the Mistral Network explains: “Originality of line 65, it is extended at night on Thursday, Friday and Saturday until 1 am and continues its route to Espace 3.000 to connect with line 39 to Hyères center and Toulon “.

An eco-citizen gesture

Already very touristy in normal times, the Var department has experienced a greater influx since last year due to the health crisis and limited foreign destinations. For four months, this territory lives to the rhythm of traffic jams, horns and pollution. This is why by creating this summer line, “the Metropolis wishes to educate residents and tourists about respecting the environment and the possibility of adopting public transport for green and relaxing holidays”, says Valérie Canto.

A Brussels tourist met on the line affirms this idea: “I only travel by TER or bus during these holidays to avoid wasting time on the road, to let go and contribute on my scale to ecological gestures.”
