Transport Links – Bordeaux's Merignac Airport is located west of the city. It's a regional airport which serves mostly domestic flights, though there are international flights as well connecting Bordeaux to some European "hub" airports like Paris (Orly and Roissy), London (Gatwick) Madrid and Amsterdam. An express bus runs every 40 minutes to the city center, and makes several stops in the city. The main train station (Gare Saint Jean) is located about 4km from the center of town. Several trains per day (around one every two hours) go north (to Paris, about 5 hours, Angoulème, Poitiers), south (to Toulouse, Marseille, Montpellier (about 4 to 5 hours), up to Nice), and east (to Périgueux and Clermont-Ferrand). Buses and taxis leave from in front of the station. Catch the tramway to go to the inner center.
The bus station is located just in front of the train station, in the center of the town. Eurolines provide bus service to the city.

Bicycle hire is available for getting around Bordeaux, although getting around on foot is very easy.
