There is a shuttle service between Bordeaux Airport and Bordeaux train station, called Direct'30. Departing from Terminal B (arrivals level) at the airport, the Direct'30 shuttle connects Bordeaux Airport to Bordeaux train station via the city centre every hour, 7 days a week. The ride from start to finish lasts around 30 minutes, depending on traffic. You'll find all the comfort you enjoy on the plane, to get your trip off to a good start or finish. Bordeaux airport is not big, so providing you don't have any checked-in luggage to wait for on arrival, you can count on catching a Direct30'Bus just 15 to 20 minutes after landing.
