Dai ly life B GETTING AROUND By bus and metro The STAR network The STAR public transport network is made up of the metro line and 141 bus routes, and serves all the Rennes Métropole area. The bus routes within the city itself are organised around the metro, which crosses Rennes from north-west to south-east via the city centre. The out-of-town bus routes serve the whole of Rennes Métropole. Timetables © C. Ablain / Rennes Métropole The metro and the seven main bus routes (1, C2, C3, C4, 5, 6 et 9) run from about 5.20 am to 12.30 am (Monday to Saturday), and from 8.30 am to 12.30 am on Sundays and public holidays. All the other routes run from about 6.30 am to 9 pm. Two lines of "Star de nuit" runs from 2 am to 7.30 am from Wednesday evening to Sunday morning. On Friday and Saturday nights, buses leave the centre of Rennes at 11 pm and 12.30 am to go to Rennes Métropole's towns and villages. Fares Each STAR ticket costs €1.50 for one hour's transport, and is valid throughout the whole STAR network. A book of 10 tickets costs €13.70, and a whole-day ticket €4.00. Every metro station has one or more automatic ticket machines. If you regularly use the bus and metro to get around, it is cheaper to buy one of the various types of season ticket (Korrigo - annual, monthly, or weekly) from one of the STAR offices. By train Rennes enjoys a TGV (high speed train) service. Today 21 TGV departures a day put the city only 2 hours away from Paris.
