On this page, you’ll find all the practical information you need to get around Rouen by public transport.

Need to get around Rouen?

Rouen’s public transport service, known as the Astuce network, is one of the largest urban transport networks in France. The 4 TEOR (Transports Est Ouest Rouennais) lines serve the right and left banks. TEOR takes you from Bihorel and the Hauts de Rouen to the Plateaux Nord, further east, via Rouen city center. From Canteleu to Darnétal, from Mont-Saint-Aignan to Rouen or Notre Dame de Bondeville, from Boulingrin to Zénith, take advantage of 4 lines reserved exclusively for TEOR. A T5 line is planned for 2025!

Metro, bus,

Teor and Filo'r

Public transport in Rouen has undergone a facelift in recent years, with the Réseau Astuce network covering a large part of the city and its metropolitan area. Completely restructured in early 2007, the network of regular bus routes and school bus routes is organized around the main routes served by the metro and TEOR (Transport Est Ouest Rouennais – exclusive reserved lane). The bus network comprises 30 regular bus routes (excluding TEOR routes), 18 shared cab routes and 24 school bus routes. The capital of Normandy has two metro lines. These cross five communes (Rouen, Petit-Quevilly, Grand-Quevilly, Sotteville-lès-Rouen and Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray). They divide into two branches on the south bank (Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray / Technopôle and Grand-Quevilly / Georges Braque), which meet at Saint-Sever station (shopping center) and terminate at Boulingrin station in Rouen. Public transport is free on Saturdays. At the ends of Rouen and close to public transport, discover Rouen’s free park-and-ride facilities (subject to ticket validation).

Crossing the Seine

with the Calypso shuttle

Many of Rouen’s bridges straddle the Seine. But did you know that you can also cross from one bank to the other on the Calypso river shuttle? This new system is part of the Astuce network, which brings together all the public transport services of the Rouen Normandy Metropolitan Area. An electro-solar means of locomotion, it offers the possibility of getting around in a way that is respectful of nature. It runs 7 days a week, and is free at weekends.
