Communauté d'agglomération de La Rochelle

As the authority organising transport, the Communauté d'Agglomération de La Rochelle (CdA) is tasked with organising transport in its territory. It delegates operation of the urban public transport network to several operators including Régie des Transports Communautaires Rochelais and Transdev.

Yélo: smart transport

For easy identification and use of the range of public transport services in its territory, Communauté d'Agglomération de La Rochelle has created the Yélo brand. This covers all transport modes available in the district. Bringing to mind the colour yellow and similar in sound to the word "vélo" (French for bike), Yélo refers to the colour that has adorned bikes in the La Rochelle district since 1976. The Yélo brand symbolises a new era in public transport, combining diversity, complementarity, accessibility and respect for the environment.
