Nantes Métropole and SEMITAN reinforce the bus service in order to better serve the Chantrerie where the LSM will take place from Tuesday to Friday.

The bus line number 72 (Gachet <-> Facultés) serves different LSM 2009 places :

  • the main location - Polytech - Christian Pauc station (map)
  • the LSM off - Pôle Étudiant (Students Home) - Facultés station (map)
  • the hosting place - Bourgeonnière student housing - 8 min by feet from the Recteur Schmitt station (map)

The Bourgeonnière student housing is also located in front of the Bourgeonnière tramway station (line 2).

The Recteur Schmitt bus and tramway stations can be reached in 8 minutes by feet or in a couple of minutes by tramway (take the tramway at Bourgeonnière station direction Gare de Pont Rousseau and stop at the next station Recteur Schmitt). The Recteur Schmitt bus station is across the street from the Recteur Schmitt tramway station.
