Arcachon Transportation: 7 reviews and 6 photos
My journey to Arcachon started at Bordeaux-Mérignac Airport from where it took the Jetbus to the train station Bordeaux St. Jean. The bus leaves the airport every 45 minutes and the journey into town takes from 30-60 minutes depending on the traffic situation. The single trip costs 7 EUR.
At Bordeaux-St. Jean I jumped on one of the many trains to Arcachon. The journey takes about 50 minutes and a single trip is 9,60 EUR (11,60 EUR for the TGV). Buy your ticket and validate it before getting on the train, otherwise you'll pay an addional 10 EUR.
Ok, there's cheaper possibility than that I found out on my last visit:
Take bus No.49 to Mérignac (stop Lycées de Mérignac), change to bus No. 35, 35 express or 81 for Pessac train station (stop Pessac Centre). This trip will cost you 1,40 EUR. From Pessac take the train to Arcachon for 8,70 EUR. During weekdays this option will probably be shorter aswell, be careful on weekends though. On Saturdays buses between Mérignac and Pessac only go once per hour; on Sundays there's no bus at all!
