After a year of interruption due to Covid-19, the Luciole shuttle resumed service on Thursday evening in Nantes.

This free bus for night owls will operate Thursday and Saturday until June, including during school holidays.

On the night of Thursday to Friday, a departure is scheduled at 4 am from the Banana Hangar and to Chantrerie.

It passes in particular by Commerce, the Motte-Rouge bridge, the faculties or the Beaujoire.

Three departures on Saturday

On the night from Saturday to Sunday, the offer is more generous: three shuttles and three circular circuits accompany revelers from the Banana Hangar.

Departures are set at 2.45 am, 3.45 am and 4.45 am.

The northern circuit connects Commerce, Petit-Port, Haluchère and the Rond-point de Paris.

The western circuit passes through Bellevue, Les Dervallières and Beauséjour.

The southern circuit serves the Hôtel-Dieu, Gréneraie and Espace Diderot.

“The on-demand service is valid for Luciole, you can ask the driver to get off as close as possible to your destination, even between two stops,” adds the Semitan.

A prevention officer will always be on board the bus.
