RTM: Régie des transports de Marseille (Marseille Transport Authority)

The RTM is the Marseilles intramural transport network. It brings together bus, tram and metro transport services.
In terms of buses in Marseille, the RTM has no less than 80 lines and 1,238 stops. By downloading the RTM application you will have in real time the arrival time of the selected bus at the desired location.

The ticket (bus - metro - tramway) taken at the terminal is 1€60 for the first purchase. It is then rechargeable (don't throw it away!!!!!), the price then decreases to 1€50. This ticket allows you to benefit from one hour of connection (including round trip) throughout the RTM network. However, please note that you are limited to only one access to the metro.
