Lorient Agglomeration

lorient agglomeration logo

Lorient Agglomeration is a group of 19 municipalities devoted to the shared development of a territorial project that is made more dynamic and more ambitious by their consolidation. Lorient Agglomeration has been in charge of "transport and travel" since the start. It has been in charge of road networks of value to the community since 1997. At Lorient's interchange station located at Cours de Chazelles, the transport and travel shop distributes information on the various modes of transport available in the area.

Le Triskell, a public transport service with dedicated lanes, is a demonstration of the top priority that Lorient Agglomeration accords to more efficient public transport services. The first portion of Le Triskell was inaugurated on 13 October 2007. The urban bridge, an integral part of this project, has created a new link in the heart of the city. An extension of Le Triskell to Quéven and Ploemeur is currently under review. The bus network, managed by CTRL, provides high-quality service in all 19 incorporated municipalities. Transrade maritime service is provided to 4 municipalities. A new 'zero CO2 emissions' boat will enter service in 2012, adding to the existing fleet of 3 boats linking Lorient, Locmiquélic, Port-Louis, and Gâvres, which 700,000 passengers use each year.

A multimodal transport hub will transform Lorient's train station neighbourhood by 2016.

Since 1st March 2012, KorriGo, the card for travelling in Brittany, has been operating for TER users in Lorient Agglomeration. The bus network will be added by early 2013, at the latest. The KorriGo card is a unique transport card that facilitates the combined use of all of the public transport networks.
