Mons Intra-Muros (minibus network):

You can take advantage of Mons’s free-of-charge ‘intra-muros’ bus network. The busses stop by every 10 minutes and are easily recognizable by their small size and their name ‘Circuit A’, 'Circuit B' or ‘Circuit C’. The following map describes those tours and indicates (red dots) where the busses stop.
