Travel costs

Getting around at prices that suit you.

Public transport

TAG in Grenoble – solidarity-based fare system

The solidarity-based fare system (‘tarification solidaire’) entitles you to reduced fares depending on your ‘quotient familial’.
Good to know
The ‘quotient familial’ is a tool used to calculate your monthly income. It takes into account your professional income, any family benefits you receive, and your family circumstances.
> To find out more, see the website of the Grenoble transport agency (TAG), and its ‘Tarification solidaire’ section
> To find out how to calculate your ‘quotient familial’, and how to benefit from solidarity-based fares, see the campus life website, iCampus

Citéa in Valence – reduced fares

Reduced fares apply automatically if you are under 26 years old.
If you are over 26, you will have to prove that your income does not exceed a certain threshold.

> Find out more at the ‘Valence Romans déplacements’ website, or directly at a Citéa agency

Employer subsidy for salaried workers

If you use public transport for your daily commute between your home and your place of work, your employer will subsidize part (50%) of the cost of your travel pass.

> See the UGA staff intranet or contact your employer’s human resources department to find out how you can benefit.


A simple solution for getting around at minimal cost is to buy or rent a bicycle. Cycling is becoming increasingly popular in Grenoble.
