North towards Rennes

Take the tramway number 2 and get off at "Le Cardo". 20 meters behind you you will see the road going to Rennes. This is a very famous spot which works very well. Cars have place to stop and as there is a roundabout they are not going fast yet.

West towards Saint-Nazaire, Vannes, Brest

There is a nice spot at the commercial center Atlantis. You can reach it with the tramway number 1, get off at the terminus "François Mitterand". Once there, you follow the railways until the next cross-way (20m), there turn right. On the third roundabout is the sublet to the N444. The walk might take you 5 to 10 minutes. Be careful, this spot doesn't work on Sunday. Cars taking this sublet are either people who get home from work at the industrial zone or people who went shopping in the commercial center. On other days of the week it's a good spot. You can be seen and cars have space to stop.

South towards Bordeaux, Niort, Toulouse

Take the BusWay (line 4 of tram network) to Bourdonnières, cross the carpark and wait at the small roundabout, on Boulevard de Vendee. The first petrol station leaves you on the A83, the motorway towards Niort.

East towards Paris, Angers, Le Mans
