Montpellier is a very modern city, with excellent transport links. In the city center most places can be reached on foot and everywhere can be reached by bike. Otherwise, we suggest that you use the excellent public transport!
In Montpellier there is an excellent public transport system of buses and trams, which provides a cheap and practical way of getting around the city.

Getting to the beach !
We think the best way is to take the line 3 tramway to Pérols – Etang de l’Or, then the bus line 132 to Petit travers at Carnon (using your TaM card of cause!). On week-ends from mid-May and throughout June and July the bus 32 gets you to Villeneuve-lès-Maguelon (leaving from Garcia Lorca). The TaM will also get you free bike rental with “Vélomagg”.
