Your OUIBUS coach travels the same routes as other road users. It is therefore subject to the same traffic conditions. However, the OUIBUS timetable has been drawn up to avoid as much traffic congestion as possible. Our information system, big screens in the stations and our internet site issue regular information about the arrival time of your OUIBUS coach so that you, your friends and your family can make the necessary arrangements. OUIBUS uses cutting-edge technology and works day and night to keep you informed to ensure that you can travel with total peace of mind.

Which travel documents do I need?
To find out which documents you need for crossing the border, please consult the website of the EU. Passengers travelling within the Schengen zone are not usually required to disembark the OUIBUS coach for an identity check at the border. Border police on both sides carry out standard passenger checks when crossing the border to England. Therefore, you will have to get off the bus therefore before crossing the Channel. The procedure only takes a few minutes.
