The current mayor of Bordeaux has given public transport and the general look of the city quite a facelift. Though the city is big, the best things are around the town centre. And the town centre is very, very walk able. Three tramlines and a number of bus lines get around the city. Single fare tickets cost EUR 1.40, but are cheaper bought in packs of 5 or 10. Ticket are valid for an hour of unlimited transfers between vehicles. Tickets may be brought from automated machines at tramway stops. A city wide bike sharing programme called VCUB has been introduced, but you’ll have to put down a EUR 200 deposit.
