4th Congress on Innovation in Drug Delivery
Site-Specific Drug Delivery
25-28 September, 2016
Antibes-Juan-les-Pins, France

Transportation from Côte d’Azur Airport (NCE), Nice, to Antibes - Juan-les-Pins

By Express Bus 250

Express Bus 250 offers the fastest and most convenient transportation other than a private vehicle between Nice-Côte d’Azur Airport (NCE) and Antibes, Villeneuve Loubet, Juan les Pins, and Vallauris.

Traveling time on express bus 250 is around 40 minutes to Antibes and 50 minutes to Juan les Pins. Express bus 250 stops at Nice Aéroport Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, Villeneuve Loubet-Baumettes, Biot Gare, Antibes-La Fontonne, Antibes-Vautrin, Juan-les-Pins La Régence, Juan-les-Pins Les Eucalyptus, Golfe Juan – La Poste Nabonnard, and Vallauris Office de Tourisme.

As an airport express bus, Bus 250 Express does not qualify for the Lignes d’Azur €1.50 tickets. The one-way fare is €11 and €17 for an open return (around 50% off for children under 12). Buy tickets from the ticket window at the airport, directly from the driver, or online.

Express bus 250 runs mostly twice per hour: arriving from 7:30 am to 20:00 at the airport and leaving from the airport from 8:10 to 20

By Regular Ligne d’Azur Bus 200 to Antibes from Nice-Côte d’Azur Airport

The cheapest way to travel from Nice-Côte d’Azur Airport (NCE) to Antibes and all French Riviera towns between the airport and Cannes is to use the departmental bus 200. It cost only €1.50 (but a second piece of hand luggage may be charged €1 and a suitcase €5).

Bus 200 connects Nice City with Cannes via Antibes but passes en route in front of the airport. The bus does not stop at the terminal building but rather at Aéroport / Promenade in the main road in front of the airport.

Bus 200 runs twice per hour on Sundays, three times per hour on Saturdays, and mostly every fifteen minutes on weekdays. First buses from Nice city pass by the airport around 6:20 (8:00 on Sunday). The last two line 200 buses of the day to Cannes actually stop at Terminal 1 itself at 20:55 and 22:00 (20:45 an 21:55 on Sunday).

Traveling times from the Airport to Antibes on bus 200 should be around 45 minutes but can be significantly longer during peak periods.

N200 NocTAM’bus night buses also stop at Terminal 1 on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 23:30, 1:00, 2:30, and 4:10 en route to Antibes and Cannes.

As bus 200 starts in Nice City, it may be full by the time it reach the airport and refuse to pick up additional passengers. Similarly, the bus towards the airport starts in Cannes and may well be full by the time it reaches Antibes. The train is generally a safer option at busy times.
