Transportation from Bordeaux airport to St Emilion

Anybody know if there are any busses, trains or other reasonably priced options running on this route? I am trying to avoid renting a car and the train from Bordeaux city doesn;t have a workable schedule.

The train service from Bordeaux is very infrequent also the little station of St Emilion is about a mile from the village.

First you will need to take the airport bus into the city. This leaves from every 45 minutes and the final stop is at the railway station.

The current train timetable can be viewed and downloaded from


The local buses to St Emilion from Bordeaux are equally sparse.

The number 302 bus leaves the Bordeaux Office de Tourisme (the airport bus stops near there on its way to the station)at 0920 and 1225 daily from 1st June. These arrive in St Emilion at 1030 and 1340 respectively.

cg33.fr/cg33/…302hiver0809.pdf for the timetable for that one. Note that the majority of the buses Bordeaux - Libourne leave from the suburban tram station at Lormonjt - La Buttiniere and not the city centre.

These are the only buses to the village aside from the local journeys from Libourne, some of which are 'on demand'.


has the timetable.

My suggestion, if none of that works, is to go to Libourne by bus/train and take a taxi for the short distance remaining.

I hope that helps.
