Practical details
Getting around the city and its surroundings is easier than you thought! There is a wide range of alternative modes of transport to minimise car use, making the City greener and more enjoyable for everyone. You can hop on a tram or bus, take a bike or scooter or walk.

The city of Strasbourg and its suburbs have in place a highly efficient tram and bus public transport system. The local public transport operator, Compagnie des Transports Strasbourgeois (CTS), offers easy and fast connections.

You will find plenty of practical information on the CTS website (link below) about:

- Tram and bus lines (network maps, stops)

- Times

The average cost for one CTS ticket (valid for 1 hour) is 1,80€

A tram stop (Parlement Européen) is located right in front of the parliament and two other tram stations (Wacken and Droits de l'Homme) are situated within a walking distance from the parliament.

A special CTS subsidised ticket valid for the duration of the event will also be available for participants. More information about how to request such ticket will be available soon.
