Getting Here in St-Malo
The train station (Square Jean-Coquelin) is a 15-minute walk from the walled town—walk straight up Avenue Louis-Martin. Half a dozen trains daily make the 72-km (45-mile) trip from Rennes to St-Malo (55–80 mins, €16); a TGV express from Paris's Gare Montparnassse arrives several times a day in Rennes, where you can transfer. Trains also connect St-Malo to Dol-de-Bretagne (15 mins) and Dinan via Dol (65 mins), but the bus is cheaper and faster. TIV runs buses to Rennes (1¾ hrs), Dinard (40 mins), and Cancale (30 mins). CAT makes the trip to Dinan (35 mins) and Les Courriers Bretons makes the 1¼-hour journey to Mont-St-Michel in Normandy. Buses leave from the Gare Routière, immediately outside the intra-muros (within the walls) Old Town. You can also ferry from here to Dinan and Dinard via Emeraude Lines.
