France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Transport, Aix-en-Provence, France
Very frequent buses between Marseille-Provence Airport and Aix, and useful trains to other cities in France.





Aix has its own small airport, the Aérodrome d'Aix-en-Provence, but the closest major airport to Aix is Aéroport Marseille-Provence, 27 km (17 miles) southwest of Aix (map). Ligne 40 airport shuttle buses (navette) connect the Marseille airport, the Aix TGV train station, and the Aix Gare Routière (bus terminal, near the Aix city-center train station).


The Gare d'Aix-en-Provence SNCF (city-center train station) serving traditional (non-high-speed) and TER regional trains is on southern side of historic city, 900 meters (1/2 mile, a 10-minute walk) from the city center Hôtel de Ville (city hall) (map).

The Gare TGV Aix-en-Provence is a separate station for high-speed TGV trains only, 15 km (9.3 miles) southwest of the traditional city-center train station (Gare d'Aix-en-Provence) on the D9 highway (map). Ligne 40 shuttle buses connect the Aix TGV station with Marseille airport and the Aix city-center train station.


The Gare Routière (intercity bus station) is south of the center and just west of the train station, at the southern end of the Avenue des Belges on the southwestern side of the traffic circle (rond-point) (map).


Parking areas in Aix are well sign-posted and marked, with illuminated signs showing number of parking places available (Libre) in each place. If the sign reads Complet, the parking lot is full—no places available. Look for another parking area.

Local Transport

Aix is perfect for walking, but local buses operated by AIXenBUS are useful for longer journeys, as to the suburbs. More...
