Marseille Airport Train Transfers

Passengers arriving at Marseille airport and wishing to carry on their journey by train can take the free shuttle bus service that runs every few minutes from the terminal MP1 to the small Vitrolles Aéroport metro train station at MP2.

The shuttle bus leaves from platform two, located just outside of Halls 3 and 4. There is a ticket desk as well as a ticket machine, where passengers can buy their bus and train tickets for the metro train that will take them to Marseille’s main train station.

It only takes 5 minutes by shuttle bus to get to the metro train station and the service runs every 10 minutes. Apart from providing passengers with city destinations across Marseille, the metro rail network also gives access to the main train station in the city center and to several tourist destinations via direct train services.

The journey time is just 17 minutes and a return fare from the airport to Marseille’s main train station cost just £4.50 per person.

The historic towns of Arles, Avignon, Valence, Nimes, Montpellier and Montelimar can all be reached directly with trains from Marseille Provence Airport. Connecting trains from the main train station in Marseille run to Aix-en-Provence, Cassis, Aubagne, Cannes and Nice for example as well as onward connections to Monte Carlo in Monaco just across the French border.

At Valence and Montelimar passengers can also switch to direct train services to Lyon and Grenoble, while at Montpellier there are onward connections to Perpignan and other destinations along the southern coastline.

Marseille trains to popular tourist destination Aix-en-Provence for example take approximately 1 hour and 18 minutes to complete the journey and the return fare for one adult is £10.00. A journey to Nice via Marseille Airport trains will take approximately 3 hours and 24 minutes to complete and will cost just under £35.00 for the return ticket.

The town of Arles is also a popular destination to which direct trains from Marseille run to; the journey takes just 42 minutes. At a cost of just £10.50 per return adult ticket a day trip to Arles is not expensive and leaves plenty of money in the holiday budget for a tour of the local bistros to sample the wonderful Provencal cuisine. At Arles passengers can also board onward trains to Luxembourg and Strasbourg, which are intercity night trains or day time trains to Bordeaux-Saint-Jean.
