Brittany is serviced by a bewildering number of companies. Although the region is nicely threaded by train lines, some towns are bus-only. These include Carnac (90 mins) and Quiberon (2 hrs), on a Keolis Atlantique bus from Vannes; Dinard (30 mins) on a Keolis Emeraude bus from St-Malo; and Cancale (40 mins, €2), also from St-Malo.
As for Mont-St-Michel just across the regional boundary in Normandy, buses connect with St-Malo (1 hr, 50 mins via Dol, €4.50) and with Rennes (80 mins, €10.30). Use Transports Caoudal from Quimper to reach Pont-Aven.
