Move around in Marseille

There are many ways to get around in Marseille: taxis, car rental, public transport, sea shuttles…Organise all your travel needs for your stay in Marseille. The city is resolutely looking to the future by offering an increasingly wide and varied range of intra-and inter-urban transport services. The crucial challenge is to make the city easy, friendly and pleasant to live in for everyone: the municipality and the Metropolis are becoming more and more involved each year to achieve this. The recent pedestrianisation of a section of the Canebière and its adjacent streets testifies to this!

Car sharing and self-service car rental

Over the past decade, these operators have become major players in urban mobility in France, sharing  car fleets for users who need them only occasionally. They allow flexibility of use, budgetary savings, and to act towards an energy transition and respect for the environment.  It is in our best interests to make them more attrctive by public transport, to make our city more welcoming and to enjoy it better.
