By experience, we invite our visitors to anticipate their displacements in particular in the direction of the returns Ile de Ré towards La-Rochelle (connections Station or airport). Indeed, during the weekends of bridge, days of departures and returns of school vacations, we invite the travelers to take 1 or 2 buses before the schedule the most adapted to their correspondence. Disruptions can be expected, especially when crossing the bridge during busy periods. Do not take the last bus to avoid potentially heavy traffic. Depending on the tide times, a maritime shuttle Ile de Ré/La Rochelle is also possible in season!
