Fancy New Public Transit Aixpress Bus Arriving Spring 2019

By Aixcentric:

So here it is, the new Aixpress bus.

The manufacturers call it an ‘ie-tram’, whereas the Aix mairie refers to it as an ‘autobus’, and this does reflect the dual use of the vehicle in that it will run along inside its own designated lane for most of its journey (like a tram), but can also function like a normal bus where necessary.

…Continue reading here for details on the Aixpress bus it’s electric-powered and due to start operations in April 2019. The sleek interior will accommodate 78 people (22 seated). The design is suitable for wheelchairs and strollers too.

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."
