Transport on demand service launched!

The new and improved Transport on Demand service is now in operation!

Simply phone: 09 69 39 14 14 and request transport from A-to-B from virtually any village in the department. From 2€ you can travel across your sector (and further) at a time that suits you (subject to availability).

And don’t worry about speaking French, once you get through to an advisor you can ask for someone who speaks English! You just need to get past the first two automated options: Press #1 for Transport on demand; then #1 again for transport in the Mayenne.

If you want to try speaking French, be prepared to give the following info:

Nom de Famille/Surname, Prénom/First name, Email address, Phone number, Address, Birth date.

It really is easy and convenient, not to mention cheap!
