The two new bus lines from the Parking des Salines to Places d’Armes and the Monaco Tourism Office on Boulevard des Moulins are now up and running, making travel from the recently opened carpark to central locations in the Principality a cinch. 

Following the much-awaited opening of the new Salines carpark in the Jardin Exotique neighbourhood on Monday 15th April, the promised bus routes between the parking lot and Monaco’s city centre are now operational.  

Express Shuttle 1 connects the Parking des Salines to Places d’Armes while Express Shuttle 2 heads to the Monaco Tourism Office on Boulevard des Moulins in Monte-Carlo via the Pont Sainte Dévote.  

Both services run between the hours of 7am and 7pm from Monday to Friday, with buses departing their terminals every 10 minutes. 

Additionally, the CAM Ligne 2 bus between the Jardin Exotique and Monaco Ville is now offering extended hours of operation. A bus will be available every 15 minutes from 6am on weekdays, and every 10 minutes after 7am.  

For those who prefer pedal power over public transport, there are two new e-bike stations at the Salines parking lot: spaces for 63 Monabikes have been allocated on Levels –1 and –15.  

The new carpark is part of a national strategy to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion on Monaco’s roads. There are nearly 1,800 carparking spaces at the vast new Salines park and ride facility as well as 100 dedicated spots for electric vehicles.
