Bretagne, Morbihan some transports bits and pieces….

ok so one of the most difficult situation in Brittany, Bretagne, Breizh is the minimum public transport service. The idea of moving about freely as in the ile de France (Paris,Versailles) region is unheard of, nothing like 10 minutes of intervals on buses,etc, here you get one every two hours; the summer a bit better as it is tourist season for the region, the winter is dead.

Trying to figure it out is tough, luckily I depend on my car, my boys a bit less, we try to connect whereever they are as to from where I am coming from or a simple outing to city center Vannes for example can take all day to maximize the traject and shopping. So ,therefore, here are some bits and pieces of public transports in my new department of the Morbihan, dept 56 of Brittany, France. Listing by towns,
