From Saturday July 3 until the end of August, the Municipality of La Teste de Buch in partnership with COBAS, offers a relay parking as well as a shuttle bus to reach the Grand Site of the Dune du Pilat. This new service is located 8 km from the Dune, in the La Teste de Buch business area, near the Parc des Expositions.
It aims to reduce unauthorized parking on the outskirts of the Grand Site, which creates the risk of fires and accidents and which degrades natural environments. This system is also an alternative when the parking lot in the reception area of the Dune is saturated during peak summer attendance.
The principle is simple: a first variable message sign located at the level of the Hume interchange informs motorists of the real-time use of the Dune car park. This information, disseminated upstream, thus makes it possible to direct them in the event of heavy traffic, to the park-and-ride of the Exhibition Center. They will then be able to leave their vehicle there and take the Baïa bus which will take them directly to the reception area of the Dune, by means of a dedicated lane for public transport between Miquelots and Pyla.
Useful information :
Paid relay car park (open from 9:30 am to 8 pm): 3 euros per vehicle.
Baïa shuttle: 2 euros round trip per person.
Timing of shuttles: every 20 minutes.
Choose soft mobility to come to the Dune! By bus, bicycle and even by boat, anticipate your visit and discover the Grand Site differently
