RULES OF GOOD CONDUCT : BUSES AND TRAMS: SHARED SPACES
Everybody has the right to travel safely and comfortably on Strasbourg’s public transport system, so there are a number of rules in place to help us all ride together in accordance with the Transport Police Regulations. (The full set of regulations is available. Please write to: CTS Service Clientèle, 14 rue de la gare aux marchandises 67035 Strasbourg Cedex).
The CTS has made the fight against fare-dodging and uncivil behaviour on public transport a top priority.
Every day, CTS inspectors, operators and security teams work to ensure that everyone abides by the rules, ensuring a safe and comfortable journey for all.
These rules apply on board vehicles running within the boundaries of the Eurométropole de Strasbourg. From Kehl onwards, the TDK rules apply.
All travellers above the age of four must have a valid ticket or pass. This ticket or pass must be validated each time you enter a vehicle, including when changing between two lines.
For bus journeys, please validate your ticket or pass inside the vehicle using one of the terminals next to the driver.
For trams and bus journeys on lines G and H, please validate your ticket or pass using the terminal at the stop, before entering the vehicle.
Passengers without a valid ticket are subject to an on-the-spot fine.
If they cannot pay immediately, a ticket will be drawn up and an administrative charge will be added to the fine.
All passengers are invited to give up their seat to passengers with a card marked "station debout pénible" (unable to stand), elderly passengers, pregnant mothers and people accompanied by children under the age of 4.
Strollers must be parked in the area set aside for wheelchairs (which have priority) when it is free.
The driver may refuse access to strollers if he considers it will inconvenience other passengers or cause a risk of accident.
Animals are banned from buses and tram except for small pets suitably locked or guide dogs for the blind or other disabled passengers.
In areas open to the public, video protection is implemented by the CTS, for the safety of people and of property (Articles L.223-1 to L.223-9, L.251-1 to L.255-1, L.613-13 and R.251-1 to R.253-4 of the French Internal Security Code).
Images are held for up to 30 days and, in the event of an incident, can be viewed by authorised CTS personnel and by law enforcement officials.
To exercise your data protection rights, in particular your right of access to images concerning you, or for any information on this system, you can contact our Data Protection Officer (DPO) by writing to email@example.com.
It is also possible to make a complaint to the CNIL at cnil.fr/plaintes.
For your safety and for their own, sworn officers of the CTS may use personal mobile cameras.
For more information, please see the Legal Notice section on cts-strasbourg.eu.
