Best Way to get to Eze Village?

I am wondering what is the best way to access Eze village in the French Riviera if I am coming from Nice. My hotel recently informed me that if I were to go by train, there would then be a 2 hour walk up to the village since it is a few thousand feet high, however that is time that I don't really have on this trip. Can anyone recommend a more time-efficient way to Eze? Cab? Bus? Thanks for you input.

Nice to Eze is only about 11kms. You can catch a bus from the bus station in Nice, which takes about 45 minutes, or a taxi which will take about 20 minutes.

Take the 82 bus from Nice at the new (temporary) bus station, a short walk from the Vauban tram line stop. This is the terminus for line 82 while the bus station is being rebuilt. You can catch it at other places (just off place Garibaldi, for one), but by catching it at the terminus, you can check the bus schedule and have a firm departure time, while securing a seat (might fill up as you go down the line). Took us about 25 minutes, and only costs one euro each way (or you can buy the day pass for all busses and trams for four euros--which works well if you are taking the tram to and from the terminus).

First look at the map of the area: http://www.lignesdazur.com/ftp/plans...29bdef2011.pdf. Inset at right top "Secteur Est"

You notice Eze Village is served by three buses #83, #82, #112.

1. SNCF train + bus #83/taxi. http://www.lignesdazur.com/ftp/ligne...11%2009%29.pdf. This is close to the incomplete info your hotel told you.

2. Bus #82 http://www.lignesdazur.com/ftp/ligne...07%2011%29.pdf or bus #112 (Mon-Sat ONLY!) http://www.lignesdazur.com/ftp/ligne...%20%285%29.pdf. These buses are "nearly" interchangeable as long as you know the differences in bus stops at Eze Village. Bus #82 turns left from the main road and stops off the main road. You take bus #82 back to Nice from a stop down the hill closer to the bridge. Ask a local for the most current info. Bus #112 stops on the main road coming from Nice. If you take #112 back to Nice, the stop is also on the main road.
Study the time table, especially the Lundi a Samedi vs Dimance et Fetes differences very carefully and wait at the correct bus stop coming back to Nice. The first #112 bus back to Nice after the noon schedule break can be very crowded looking at the long line of people at the #112 stop. Last time, the #112 was very late, but I studied the schedule and realized that the bus #82 which would have arrived later could get me back to Nice ahead of #112, so I briskly walked to the #82 bus and hopped on a near empty bus.
