The Calypso river shuttle

Following the success of the electro-solar river shuttle to cross the Seine for the past two years, the Calypso shuttle is joining the Rouen Normandy Metropolis’ public transport network Astuce.


Cross the Seine with

the Calypso river shuttle

The quays of the Seine whether on the right bank or left bank are real places to live, ideal for strolling, relaxing and spending time with family or friends. With a view to improving mobility between these two spaces, it is now possible to go from one bank to another thanks to a river shuttle.

This new ecological means of transport that respects the local COP21 approach undertaken on the territory benefits from 49 seats. It is possible to get on board with one’s bicycle as well as strollers.



To ride it, you must have a valid Astuce ticket (all tickets are accepted). A validator inside the shuttle allows you to validate your magnetic ticket or Smart Card.

Note:no ticket sales on board the shuttle.

On Saturdays and Sundays, the crossing is FREE.

You must, however, have a validated ticket, but no trip count will be made on your ticket.

The shuttle provides the crossing of the Seine:

  • Monday to Friday continuously: 7:45 am to 9:30 am / 11:30 am to 2:30 pm / 4:30 pm to 6:45 pm,
  • Saturdays, Sundays and holidays: from 11 am to 7 pm
  • Boarding on the right bank from Jean Ango pontoon boat, on the left bank on the pontoon boat in front of 108, headquarters of the Metropolis.
