This info might be useful.Bus Station, Place de France, half right after you've crossed the bridge from marina, tucked behind La Poste building.
Day pass €3, 1 journey €1. These can be purchased from driver...but have the right money.
.Navette service runs up to old town from station and is free, 0900-1900 hrs.
For Auchan, line L direct every 2hrs or G2 which goes round the houses is hourly. The bus stop for the return journey is beside the Kerian shop in the Auchan complex.
The ladies in the bus station office have limited English but are very helpful.www.marineo.fr for full details and time tables.

Yes it was a bit noisy, applied my normal solution to all life's problems and took refuge in a bar out of earshot.
