After President Emmanuel Macron’s address to the nation last night, France is now in complete lockdown. People face fines of up to 138€ for leaving their homes without written cause. How will this affect your transport around the Principality of Monaco?



Regional bus and trains are slowly grinding to a halt with some exceptions. These are the updates of the main rail links in Monaco.


Local buses

To respect the distance of contact between the driver and customers, ticket purchases will no longer be made on board the bus, but online, at ticket machines and at kiosks.

Boarding and getting off will only take place through the doors located in the middle and at the rear of the bus. Travel is advised to be “in advance and only if necessary”.

The Bateau Bus service will stop for an undetermined duration from 8pm on Wednesday 18th March.



Flight schedules are subject to modification by airlines flying to and from Nice Côte d’Azur airport, All air operations will be operated from Terminal 2.


Given that the Government of Monaco has made no updates on whether the confinement is formally taking place in Monaco, there are few total cancellations so far.

Advice on social distancing remains the main information. However, Prince Albert II will be making a public address tonight at 8pm.
