Podcast #11 - Antoine Puentès on the history of public transport in Bordeaux
The eleventh episode of the French-language Invisible Bordeaux podcast is now available! So please form an orderly queue ahead of immediate boarding for a trip back through the 200-year history of public transport in Bordeaux, with friend-of-the-blog Antoine Puentès in the driving seat!
By day, Antoine's background as a history graduate is put to good use working for France's Centre des Monuments Nationaux, and in his spare time he has gained something of a reputation as the go-to authority on all things public transport-related, as regularly demonstrated in high-profile conferences he has given and articles he has produced. 
As we will see, the subject at hand is a vast one, ranging from the horse-drawn omnibuses and first-generation trams of yesteryear, to tomorrow's high-speed bus services and regional rail network, via the city's buses, trolleybuses, the aborted VAL metro project and the rebirth of the tram network. Your ticket gives you unlimited access to all these forms of transport over the next twenty minutes in Antoine's company!
Here then is the podcast, which you'll also find on miscellaneous platforms including Anchor, Apple Podcasts/iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Breaker, PocketCasts, RadioPublic, Overcast, Podbean, Podcast Addict and Stitcher. Feel free to hit the subscribe button on the platform of your choice!
