Choose from two TGV INOUI routes to and from Southern France
On 15 December 2019, we inaugurated the Nîmes Montpellier bypass—a new high-speed rail line that expands your travel options in the southern French region of Occitanie. We now offer two TGV INOUI itineraries:
- The existing high-speed line, with stops at Nîmes Centre and Montpellier Saint-Roch stations.
- The new high-speed bypass, serving Nîmes Pont du Gard and Montpellier Sud de France stations. This route saves around 10 minutes to/from Nîmes and 15 minutes to/from Montpellier1.
