Bus services are operated by TaM. (Transports de l'agglomération de Montpellier)

There are some 36 bus routes to complement the tram routes. A minibus runs at night for late-night travel to the urban areas. However during the summer, on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, there is a bus service called Amigo for the night revelers.

Tram. This is a four route system owned by the Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole, and is operated by TAM. The first line opened in July 2000 and the second in December 2006. Lines 3 and 4 opened in April 2012 along with an extension of line 1 and a diversion of line 2. The western section of line 4 opened in July 2016, thus completing the loop it makes around the city.


Rail. Montpellier-Saint-Roch railway station is located in the city centre. The station is served by trains to most major  French cities. International services operate to Barcelona and Madrid in Spain and Brussels in Belgium.

  There are plans to construct a high-speed railway linking Nîmes and Montpellier with the LGV Méditerranée. Train services are operated by SNCF.

The city of Montpellier is 10km inland from the the Mediterranean . The town's stately Gothic Cathédrale Saint-Pierre, distinguished by conical towers, dates to 1364. The city's Antigone district is a modern development inspired by neoclassical motifs. Paintings from French and European Old Masters hang at the Musée Fabre.
