The published bus timetables are valid indefinitely and don't tend to change much, if at all. Unlike the trains. Allow a few minutes either side of published times for variations due to traffic or roadworks, especially if you are boarding mid-route.

Enjoy your trip!

Which timetables do you mean?

Timetables do change and there have been some dramatic changes to bus routes over the past couple of years in Nice- even in the past couple of weeks

Apart from the major re-organsiation of buses in Nice -timings tend to stay about the same -except for july and august on certain routes where some have an increase and some a decrease [sometimes dramatic]

Additionally there may be route alterations for special events eg monaco GP, road races etc

I usually post updates here for major things affecting tourists but I don't post everything so if you plan to travel on a low frequency route, you need to check at the bus office or phone the info line 08 1006 1006.

Yes, as Selkie says, they rarely change. Just use the website:

www.lignesdazur.com/horaires/?rub_code=23

In relation to alterations to routes e.g. for the Nice Ironman race the site often highlights 'pertubations' for certain routes.

Note that if there are a lot of changes for a variety of reasons, then other important changes will be knocked off the list of ''perturbations'' -which can be a real PITA

Also note the English version of the site does not list any changes-but at least it now says refer to the French site rather than saying, no perturbation to the network

Hi everybody!

I am using the http://www.lignesdazur.com/horaires_ligne

When I select for example N4 or 81 etc. , the date and time will only show for month of March and April.

I'm I doing something wrong, it seems pretty easy to follow.

Thank you

You aren't doing anything wrong, but your expectations are too high.

They don't have the date/time searchable database with all the intermediate stop times accessible too far in advance

You can download the pdfs or pick up timetables at the offices
