1st of May - transfer to the city

I found out that 1st of May is the only day of year in Nice when the airport buss is not going. And of course this is the day we've chosen to land on Nice airport.. :) But how is it with the taxis? Still available on a normal price range on that day? Since there's 5 of us, I guess it's the best to have a fixed price airport shuttle instead of two taxis. Are there any reliable shuttle companies?

We will stay near Place Massena. How much does it normally cost from the airport?

Thank you in advance!

A normal taxi is 30-35 euros for 4 people

There will be some trains running for Nice st augustin in to Nice ville station on may 1st

On the 1st may it will be difficult with the number of people who normally take buses competing for taxis

Plus the fact that you are a group of 5 would make me pre-book a shuttle

I have used ats in the past successfully [when i lived in antibes] but don't have recent experience with them [i now live in Nice]

yes, taxi will charge you like a sunday/holiday day and you will need 2 as your are 5. (=2*40 euros ?)

I think you could find waiting at Nice airport even the 1st of may, hundreds are waiting in continue everyday

(but more difficult to find in Nice Center)

but from now, ask a quote to different shuttle companies for a Van

(as sunday and night hours, they will charge you also +20/30% of the normal price= may be 50 euros ?)

walk + train is also a solution but check before the train schedule as it's also a limited schedule (every hour ?) = 1.5 euro one way may be per person
