The public transports of Redon!

Ok so I am daring to go into public transport again! I do passed by here several times in my working world, connections here and visit by car in my road warrior trip. The town of Redon is a waterways dandy in my beautiful Morbihan and like to tell you a bit more on the public transports of Redon! Hope you enjoy as I.

The closest airport to Redon is at Rennes-Saint Jacques, tiny and taken, and a bigger one and better at Nantes Atlantique , I have come by the road in my road warrior trip and as they said only 4 hrs from Paris, and less than an hour from Nantes, Rennes or Vannes which indeed is pretty much my time, Also, Redon located at the confluence of the rivers Oust and Vilaine is only at about 60 km from Rennes, 50 km from Vannes ,and 60 km from Nantes. I take it most often getting on the N165 road (Brest – Nantes) and getting off by Vannes on the N166, then get off the D775 direction Questembert/ Redon, Coming from Paris once get to Rennes take the rocade sud N136 to exit 8 Porte de St Nazaire direction St Jacques airport on the D177 to Redon.

I have taken the train station here on connection trips to Paris and Nantes , and of course passed by it many times on direct trips. The train station is small convenient modern nice and at less than 3 hrs via Rennes to Paris as well as Lyon, and Toulouse, via Nantes, I have taken it Vannes Redon onwards to Paris or Vannes Redon to Nantes, The gare or train station was put into service and inaugurated on September 21, 1862. Between 2014 and 2016, the station was redeveloped, in particular with the creation of an underground tunnel under the tracks, as part of the more general creation of an interchange multimodal hub.

It is equipped for accessibility for people with reduced mobility and with various equipment, in particular automatic TER ticket machines and parking spaces for bicycles and road vehicles.
