Nice Tram
Nice's modern tram

Ligne 1 is the first of several tramlines (Line 2 is in the process of construction) to crisscross Nice. Fast, quiet, efficient and modern, this line links northern Nice with Place Massena and eastern Nice. At a cost of only €1.50 a ride, the tramway is a bargain as well. The tramway arrives like clockwork every 4 minutes (somewhat less frequently in off-hours) and runs from 4.30am to around 1.30am.

There are 21 stops running on a north-south axis from Las Planas to Pont Michel. See the tramway (in red) on a Nice bus and tram map. For travellers, the most convenient link runs along ave Jean Médecin from the train station, to Place Masséna, the Acropolis conference center and Old Nice. See a Nice map.

Buying Tickets

You cannot buy a ticket on the tram. There is a distributor at each stop that sells tickets or you can use a bus ticket. You can also transfer from the bus to the tram (and vice versa) for a period of 74 minutes but only in one direction (i.e. not a return trip).
