Sustainable travel offers

Soft mobility

The main solution to air pollution, which is partly due to carbon dioxide from cars, lies in changing our modes of transport. Walking, cycling or the use of individual soft mobility devices should therefore be favoured when travelling in the city.


Beyond the health benefits, walking is the most natural and popular mode of transport for short journeys.


The “bicycle plan” launched by the Metropolis and the department, and the effects of the current pandemic, have enabled the bicycle to take an increasingly important place in Marseille’s traffic. One of the three main themes of this plan is to improve access to cycling for as many people as possible. In response, the Metropolis and then the City of Marseille have made available, via three companies, 1,000 mechanical bicycles and recently 2,000 electric bicycles. The multiplication of parking facilities, the construction of new cycle paths and the reinforcement of safety are the objectives set by the different institutions.
Availability in real time

Electric scooters

Whether private or public, electric scooters are a micromobility alternative to the car. They allow medium-distance journeys to be made in a short time. Currently, on the rental market, 4,500 new-generation electric scooters are available to the people of Marseille.


The pedestrianisation of public space in the city centre encourages the development of low-carbon deliveries by small vehicles that do not emit any greenhouse gases or by bicycles or cargo bikes. The absence of time constraints applied to this type of delivery is a real advantage.


As part of its support for the development of car-sharing, the City of Marseille is offering a 50% reduction in the parking rate for electric car-sharing vehicles in paying areas. This reduction is also valid for local residents wishing to take out a resident subscription to paid parking.

Marseille offers a wide range of traditional transport services:
2 metro lines, 28 stations, 77 bus lines (with a night network)
1200 stops, 3 tram lines, 34 stations
