Using the tramway in Caen

A convenient way to travel in Caen is the tramway. There are 2 tram lines in Caen (lines A and B). Here is a map of the tram lines. The price of a ticket is 1,5 euro. A ticket is valid for one hour.

To buy the tram tickets, you must use the automatons which are available at every tram stop (payment with coins or credit card).

Be careful : you must stamp (punch) your ticket in the machines inside the tram.

Note : with the same ticket you can use every tram or TWISTO bus during 1 hour, but you have to stamp (punch) the ticket each time you embark. Other explanations can be found on the website of the company TWISTO, e.g. here .

There are also "10 journeys" tickets (12,70 euro), but you will probably not need such tickets because the student rooms and the lecture rooms are located on Campus 1, about 10-15 minutes' walk from downtown. See here for other kinds of tickets.

Location of the different events of the conference

Talks and coffee breaks :

The talks will take place on the campus 1. To reach the campus from the train station, the simplest way is to take the tram A direction "Caen-Campus 2" or the tram B direction "Hérouville Saint-Clair", and to get off at the stop "Université" (see above for a map and precisions concerning the tram). The trip lasts a bit less than 20 minutes. It is also possible to walk by simply following the tram line (duration : about 30-35 minutes).

Here is a map of campus 1. And here is another one.

Then, if you walk a few meters along the tram line (still in the direction "Caen-Campus 2" or "Hérouville Saint-Clair"), you will reach the reception building of the CROUS (this is a green building). The reception is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
