Accessibility on the Lignes d'Azur network

BUS

Most of the buses have a low floor and retractable ramp allowing access for people with reduced mobility.

Each vehicle has an area reserved for people in wheelchairs and seats for people with reduced mobility.

More than 320 stops in Nice are equipped to offer accessibility to people with reduced mobility.

On the timetables of routes 3 - 4  - 7 - 9 - 10 - 14 - 17 - 22 - 23 - 63, a PMR pictogram signals stops accessible to people with reduced mobility.

 

TRAM

Equipped with a low-floor at the same level as the station platform, the tram is fully accessible and provides access to the tram cars without having to negotiate steps.

This direct access is further enhanced by extra-wide doors marked with the symbol [PMR]

The station’s amenities have also been designed for your safety: spacious platforms, gently sloping plat- form access ramps, suitable lighting, low vending machines, lighted scrolling strips, tactile ground paving. Braille signage indicates the name of the station and the direction of the line.

It is positioned just above the screen of each of the ticket vending machines installed on the platforms of the stations of the tram line.

Inside the trams, the stations are announced by jingles (audio announcements made by the artist Michel Redolfi) and a lighted scrolling strip.

The 22 stations of Line 1 of the tramway are located from Nice Nord, 2, boulevard Henri Sappia - Henri Sappia station- to Hôpital Pasteur station, square Henri Lentulo.

 As part of the tram extension programme, many improvements have been made in collaboration with various associations of disabled persons and people with reduced mobility.

The trams have been adapted to conform with new accessibility standards:

  • Information screens announcing the next stop to replace scrolling strips
  • New buttons on access doors (repositioned according to height requirements)
  • PMR (people with reduced mobility) call button inside the tram
  • Larger side and frontal destination signs
  • Intercom
  • Spaces reserved for people with reduced mobility and priority persons
  • Visible identification of 44 metre trams with a yellow adhesive on the front bumper

 

Sales offices and Parcazur (car park)

The Notre Dame, Jean Jaurès and Thiers sales offices, representing 90% of the traffic, are accessible to the disabled.

The Parcazur park and rides are accessible to the disabled and have also reserved spaces at your disposal. The Parcazur Henri Sappia is equipped with PMR spaces protected by arches, which ensures the avaibility of the reserved spaces.
