There is an excellent bus network, since 2011 called Chronoplus ( for timetables and routes), serving Bayonne as well as the neighbouring Anglet and Biarritz (which form a conubation called 'BAB'). Bus journeys are a flat one euro (€1) payable in cash on the bus.This ticket is valid for one hour to allow passengers inter-change between bus services and routes. Cheaper multiple journey tickets are also available from the bus kiosks at Bayonne Mairie and the Biarritz Mairie (beside the tourist office), but cannot be bought on the bus. These include a 10-journey ticket (€8); a seven-day travel pass (€11); and a 24-hour pass (€2). These tickets are also sold at 39 tobacco shops/cafes in the Biarritz-Anglet-Bayonne (BAB) area.
Bus Line C links the airport with the Biarritz train station at La Negresse and the main Bayonne train station. The slightly less frequent No 8 bus also serves the Airport every 20-30 minutes.
