Day trip from Avignon to Aix-en-Provence and St Remy de Provence

We will be staying in Avignon for 4 days and wanted to do day trips to Aix-en-Provence and St Remy de Provence. What would be the best option to get to both places (train, bus)? Thank you.

St-Remy has no train station. It's an easy trip by bus. It's Line 57 from Avignon and takes only about half an hour. Here's a schematic drawing of the bus lines in that area: The schedule can be found here: The days of the week are indicated by initials at the top of each column:

lmmjv = Monday - Friday
s = Saturday
d = Sunday

As you can see, buses run much more frequently on weekdays.

There are both trains and buses running between Avignon and Aix-en-Provence, but the distance is greater. Public transportation seems less convenient for that trip. You can check the rail schedule for your date here: Both Avignon and Aix have city train stations as well as TGV stations outside the city. Trains involving the TGV stations require a connection into town by train, bus or taxi.

The regional express bus line LER 23 connects Avignon and Aix-en-Provence, but it doesn't run very frequently. The weekday schedule is here: The trip takes between 77 and 90 minutes.
