The Principality will continue to pay an annual contribution of 450,000 euros to subsidise the 100 bus service that runs between Nice and Menton, with some services turning around in Monaco at Place des Moulins.

Monaco’s contribution, which has been in place for eight years, has also enabled the use of longer, articulated buses.

In order to improve connectivity with other centres along the French Riviera and with Ventimiglia, the Principality subsidises the TER service operated by SNCF and several years ago bought five trains.
