I'm heading to a wedding in La Roche-Bernard on June. I want to know how easy it would be for me to arrive in Nantes and get public transport there. I speak no French but am generally comfortable bumbling around and miming my way through things.
Getting to La Roche-Bernard from Nantes is not easy. On this map of the region around La Roche-Bernard you can see that there is two bus lines going there. So you're alternatives are:
- Get a train to Vannes (1h10 to 2h) and take bus 8 to La Roche-Bernard (1 hour). This bus only runs Mo-Fr for some connections (LMMeJV) and Mo-Sa for others (LMMeJVS), there's no connections on Sundays and you'll have to call them the day before for the bus to run all the way to La Roche-Bernard. Also note that the timetable is the Winter timetable, so you should check closer to the date again.
- Get a train to Redon (40 min to 1h) and take bus 10 circuit 2 (45 min). This bus will only run Mo-Fr and different days have different timings. Again this is the Winter timetable.
Getting to Vannes or Redon from Nantes shouldn't be a problem and you can check the train timings on the site of the SNCF.
