About the station

The main station in Nîmes has been renamed 'Nîmes Centre' on some sources, because a new station outside the city has opened.

Nîmes Pont Du Gard is located 14 km outside the city, as it is positioned on the new extension of the high-speed line, which is to the south of Nimes.

Approximately 40% of the TGV trains from Paris to Nimes now call at this new station, instead of at this city centre station.

The Intercités services which call in Nimes on Marseille <> Bordeaux and Toulouse route still call at this main city centre station, as does the RENFE-SNCF service to Madrid.

The local and regional TER trains between Nimes and destinations to the north and east, including Avignon, also all still call at Nimes Centre, but they ALSO call at the new station, Nimes Pont Du Gard.
So these TER trains provide the public transport link between Nimes Pont Du Gard station and the city centre.


Trains arrive in Nimes on a viaduct which spans the city so at the station the voies (platforms/tracks) which the train arrive at/depart from are above street level.

Despite this access from and to the trains at Nimes is comparatively simple.

In the middle of each voie (platform/track) is an elevator (ascenceur) which connects the trains to the central hall of Nimes station, which is at street level.

Towards either end of each (platform/track) are stairs and escalators, which link the trains to the station building below – though the escalators are usually switched so that they lead upwards to the trains.
