# You can hitch a lift onto the motorway (Autoroute A1) and ask the driver to drop you off at the petrol station. You will need a sign saying "A1 EST". You can do so by walking North under the motorway (if you haven't gone under already in the bus) and cross over to the other side of the road and find a point at the beginning of the slip road going South onto the A1 (this way you will enter the A1 going West, but immediately your driver should get off at the next exit, cross over and come back onto the A1 heading East). Otherwise, you can walk South back to ''Six Routes'', turn right and follow the tramlines (on your left hand side) and find a suitable place to hitch (there are some traffic lights). Your driver will go over the A1 and then take the turning round to the slip road going East. From the point you join the A1 East via the circular slip road, it is only about a 1km until the petrol station, so make sure you advise your driver!!
# There is a door in the wall surrounding the petrol station which allows outside access (it was open on 31-08-10). When you arrive by public transport and do the final 1 km on foot you will approach the wall from the left side. From this side you won't be able to see the door, because it is located behind some sort of manufacturing unit which borders a part of the wall. If you walk around this unit, you will find the door at the very point were the wall of the gas station becomes visible again. At first sight it might not be clear, as it has the same appearance as the wall, but you can recognise it by two holes at chest level, you can put your arm through and feel the lock on the inside. Just pull to open it, you'll be entering the service station from the right side, close to the exit and carwash.(See [http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=107770710063601716204.00044840696bdf8a385ef&ll=48.933654,2.393292&spn=0.001334,0.004227&t=h&z=19 approximate location of the door].) Unfortunately sometimes the door is locked (latter was true on 01-06-08, 28-09-08 and 29-11-08..), then you walk away from the door to the right, follow the concrete wall and climb it at the point where it becomes a fence. Once over the fence you'll have to walk to the left, through the bushes, to enter the station. (See [http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=48.933806,+2.393823&sll=48.933663,2.393955&sspn=0.000832,0.001725&ie=UTF8&ll=48.9334,2.39363&spn=0.001663,0.003449&t=h&z=18
# location where the wall becomes a fence - green arrow].) You can walk around the wall for about 70 meters towards the left, then walk down the little hill and walk through the bushes. You have to go over a small chain link fence that is bent over at the top and then you are on the motorway.
