Important public transport change from 1 September 2014

Tram B now connects the centre of Grenoble (via the railway station) with the new terminus "Presqu'île de Grenoble". This terminus is between the Place de la Résistance roundabout and the new site entrance. N°34 bus is no longer in operation.

More information about travelling to the ILL can be found here.

New site entrance

Please note that the new site entrance - located at 71 avenue des Martyrs - will come into operation on 22 April 2014. You will no longer be able to access the site via the current site entrance on rue Horowitz.
A new n°34 bus stop is going to be created in front of the new site entrance. Only those buses that terminate at Château de Sassenage will stop at this stop, in other words one bus in every three. Please see the new timetables and route maps for the n° 34 bus.

At the beginning of September, the Tram B extension will come in to service. From the current terminus "Cité Internationale", the extension of the B line will connect  the station area with the Resistance roundabout (near the ILL) via the Rue des Martyrs. Two new stops, CEA and Resistance will be created. Once the B line extension is operational, the n° 34 bus service between the city centre and the Polygone Scientifique / Sassenage will be cancelled.

You can credit your badge or be reimbursed at the restaurant cash desk, as with the previous canteen card.
The cash desk is open during mealtimes and also from 9.00 to 11.00, and from 13.30 to 15.30, Monday to Friday.
