Another famous mode of transfer here is the tram. There is only one line running in the route. It covers the place from Aerconstellation to Palais de Justice. Though reliable, the availability of a single route poses a problem. Travelers wishing to move between these places only can choose this way of transportation. Another oft chosen mode is bike rentals. They are given on a weekly, monthly, or yearly basis in nearby places. Depending on the travelers’ requirements, they can be chosen. Another possible way of moving around is car rentals and taxis. 

Private transport here is efficient and dependable. Numerous options are always available around. Though the public transfer system here is frequent and reliable, there is no proper connection between all the places in the city. One would need to change to different modes during the journey. Given the fact the city is not a familiar one, this could be very tough. The queue lines and waiting along with the luggage only add to the existing discomfort. Touring the place in private vehicles offers a higher ground in reaching places sooner. The hustle of locating and identifying the proper routes would be eliminated. The industrial aura of the location has some exquisite views and knowledge to offer. Drowning in these and gulping down this knowledge would surely be a great experience, one to cherish forever.

To enter this exquisite and blended city, one must fly down at the Toulouse Blagnac airport. From here, several services connect this place to the main part. Though there are many to choose, the choices could sometimes result in unexpected experiences. One must select the mode which is most feasible to them. The oft chosen and primary route is the Airport shuttle. It connects the airport to the city centre. They run between 0500h and 0015h with a 20-minute gap between them. They usually take 20 minutes to reach the destination. Apart from the city centre, 4 different stops are covered through this. The frequency makes this method the most chosen one. But, the negative effect of a huge crowd and waiting time is observable. The rates vary depending upon the time of visit. During the off-season months, they come down and during the season, they increase.
