Gare de Saint-Nazaire
|Gare de Saint-Nazaire
TER Pays de la Loire
|Owned by||RFF / SNCF|
Designed by Noel Lemaresquier with a functional and maritime style, it was built in 1995 in anticipation of the arrival of the LGV Atlantique and replaced an older station in the town developed by the Chemin de Fer de Paris à Orléans railway. Located to the north of the town, to make access easier there is a bridge linking the station to the main town centre.
Its design has come in for some local criticism in 2008, as well as its state of upkeep. SNCF have promised various levels of maintenance and development, particularly to assist disabled passengers and make a better impression on visitors to the town. Access to the station by foot or car is currently difficult, due to associated and local redevelopment.
The station is served by both the TGV and the regional trains and buses of the TER Pays de la Loire. The TGV (high speed train) provides connection to Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Lille, and Strasbourg; with trains to Paris via the LGV Atlantique taking just over 2 hours. TER Pays de la Loire and Interloire provide links to Nantes, Angers, Le Mans, La Roche sur Yon, and many other regional cities and towns.
