Bus service to Fontevraud

Is the bus timetable from Saumur available online anywhere? We'll be staying in Tours and travelling by train/bus. I want to know if the connections work out to give enough time for a decent stay at the Abbey.

It's out of date, but I can't find a more recent one

This is not my area of specialty but since no one else has responded to your question here is the website for the buses that run regionally out of Saumur:

agglobus.fr/p5-les-lignes-regulieres-des-32-…

And here is the schedule for buses between Saumur and Fontevraud (Line 1):

saumur-agglobus.fr/mediatheque/documents/lig…

You'll have to look over the schedule to see what buses might be running on the day of your visit and what times are available to get there and back from Saumur.

And just to add something, the schedule I gave is only valid until July 4, 2012 (04/7/2012).

There is brand new bus service from Saumur to Fontevraud this summer. You should find information on link below and certainly the Saumur Tourist office

( 02 41 40 20 60) should be able to answer any queries about times/tickets.

Just found this - Line 1 is correct. You may have to adjust the date - www.destineo.fr/fr/schedule/line/result/…
