Passenger fury as Monaco train station elevators out of service

Commuters using the Monte-Carlo train station are encountering an unexpected obstacle in their daily routines. The six elevators that typically provide easy access from the station to the Boulevard de Princess Charlotte are currently out of service, leaving travellers stranded in queues at the parking elevators.

The malfunction of these six elevators, which have been a convenient means of reaching Monte-Carlo and the Carre d’Or from the train station, has caused inconvenience for commuters travelling for work. While the exact cause of the outage has not been disclosed, it is said that they are out of service due to security reasons. Authorities are working to address the issue and restore service as soon as possible.

For those determined to still use that exit, there is still an option to use the parking elevators. However, commuters should be prepared for potentially lengthy queues and waiting times. The parking elevators are the only alternative available for accessing Boulevard de Princess Charlotte from the station, and their limited capacity can result in delays during peak hours.

Recommended alternatives

The Port Hercule entrance offers direct access to the train station, as well as an elevator that goes up to Boulevard du Jardin Exotique, which is very near to Boulevard de Princess Charlotte.

Another entrance that can be utilised to avoid the elevator issue is the entrance near Lycée Rainier III. It also provides direct access to the train station.

Make sure you’re never left out of the conversation.
