Tram is the most popular, most effective and by all means the most comfortable way of transport in Strasbourg. Four tram lines (A, B C and D) connect all corners of the city and make city traffic more fluid. Lines A, B and C operate from Monday to Sunday from 4.30 till 0.30 while the line D operates every day except Sunday, from 7.00 till 19.00.
Unipass tickets that are used for tram and the bus transport, can be bought at the self-service vending devices that are placed on every tram station and need to be validated before the entrance to the tram. Once they are validated, the tickets are suitable for a one-way ride, during the period of one hour. These tickets are also applicable in the buses if you're changing means of transportation, but only in one single direction. There are 27 bus lines in Strasbourg and most of them operate until 23.00 every day of the week. Unipass tickets can also be bought from the bus drivers. Children younger than 4 years don't need a ticket.
You can choose between few different categories of tickets but if you're planning to use the public transport frequently during your visit, choose the Tourpass ticket that will allow you limitless traveling for 24 hours. If you're traveling with your family, select the Familipass ticket. For any additional information, visit the official site of Compagnie des Transports Strasbourgeois (CTS).
