Preparing your journeys to get around Angers

Getting around by bus

All bus routes are accessible. However, a few stops still require the assistance of a companion.

Getting around by tram

All stations on the 3 tram lines are accessible to people with reduced mobility and those with visual or hearing difficulties. Visual and tactile signs have been installed at stations to make the tramway more accessible to all.

All-new signage has been deployed at tramway stations to make them easier to use for people with cognitive disabilities. Each station is symbolised by an image that can be found next to the station name on the tramway map displayed in the station or on the trains, and on the various items of station furniture.

Irigo's online shop and vending machines in tram stations and at some bus stops are available 24 hours a day. On board buses, drivers can issue single tickets, which can be paid for by contactless bank card. The black terminals or validators on board also offer contactless BC payment.
