France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Transport for Cassis, France
Cassis ie easy to reach by train from Marseille and Toulon, as well as by bus or car.

 


 

 

 

Cassis, 27 kilometers (17 miles) southeast of Marseille (map), is served by TER trains running between Marseille and Toulon, and regional buses of Marseille and the Bouches-du-Rhône département.

You can also come by car, but in high summer you will have to park your car outside of the town center (see below).

The nearest major airport is Aéroport Marseille-Provence (MRS).

Train

The fastest and most comfortable way to reach Cassis is by TER train from Marseille (35 to 45 minutes) or Toulon.

The difficult part comes when you arrive in Cassis: the Gare de Cassis SNCF (train station) is 3 km (2 miles) north of the town center (map), and the only public bus is not coordinated with the arrival and departure of trains.

You may find a taxi waiting at the Gare de Cassis, or you may be able to call an Uber car. If not, you may have to wait up to 45 minutes for La Marcouline Ligne M01, the shuttle bus to the Casino stop in the town center. Buy your ticket on board the bus.

It's a 36-minute walk downhill along the D1 highway (Avenue des Albizzi; map) to the town center. More...

Bus

The Lignes Cartreize RDT 13 bus network (Régie Départementale des Transports des Bouches-du-Rhône) connects major cities and towns in the Bouches-du-Rhône département. More...

La Marcouline Line M01 connects the Gare de Cassis SNCF with the center of Cassis at the Casino Barrière stop.

La Marcouline Lines M6 and M8 connect Marseille with Cassis, stopping at the Gare de Cassis SNCF. You'll find route, schedule and fare information on lepilote.com.

Here's more on transportation to and from Marseille.

Car

If you have your own car, it's easy to reach Cassis...but parking in the town center may not be. There are few places to park, and in the busy season (weekends in late spring and autumn, daily in summer), the roads to the center may be closed and you may be required to park in one of the large lots on the outskirts, and ride a shuttle bus to the center. The bus may be La Marcouline Line M01 (see above).
