Boarding fees are listed in the PDF of each route and they vary depending on your destination.

 

 

If you want to move from L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue to Roussillon, it is line 14 to 17 or 109 so check the timetable there.

However, there are few bus lines in the low season, and connections can not be made from lines 14 to 17.

In that case I recommend that you call the line 109 to reserve a bus, or take a taxi after going to a place where you can go by bus.

How to pay and how to get on the bus

Open the trunk of the bus yourself for baggage. When you do not know how to open the trunk, you can open it if you ask a nearby person or the driver.

Tell the bus driver your destination and pay the money. (It is often that change is not prepared)

You do not need to buy a ticket in advance.

 

Southern France, especially the Luberon region, has few buses in both low season and high season, which is inconvenient for access.That’s why the beauty of tourist spots may be preserved.

You will be able to enjoy it as you can move to the bus so you can easily go to various places.
