And today, a bus. If I’d set off at the crack of dawn I could have caught a direct regional TER to Dijon. There are a couple every day from Paris Bercy station but I didn’t and neither did I fancy a long wait until the later train. So, I caught a TER to Laroche Migennes (no, I’d never heard of it either until this morning) where I could catch a ‘TER Bus’.
I’m not sure if it was a rail-replacement bus or a permanent arrangement. I suspect the latter. It worked out well. I had time for breakfast in the café next to the bus stop. The scenery was pretty and I can’t say I was ever bored even with it being three and a half hours. The woman driving the thing achieved speeds approaching those of a TGV making for some hairy overtaking / tailgating moments but at 2.30pm I arrived in Dijon and went for a look around. Very nice city. Watch the video:
