Bicycle

Opposite the train station, AixenVelo rents out bikes with electrical motors and has mapped several itineraries around town.

Bus

Aix en Bus (www.aixenbus.fr) runs local buses. Most run until 8pm. La Rotonde is the main hub. The tourist office has schedules.

Half-hourly shuttles link Aix' bus station and the TGV station (€4.30) with the airport (€8.20) from 4.40am to 10.30pm.

Car & Motorcycle

Circumnavigating the old town is a nightmare and metered street parking spaces are hard to find. Parking lots (around €15 to €18 per day) are plentiful, but if you’re staying a few days and want to ditch your car, drop your bags at the hotel and park on the edge of town at Parc Relais Route des Alpes or Parc Relais Hauts de Brunet and take the free shuttle to the centre.

Taxi

Taxis can be found outside the bus station. Also try Taxi Mirabeau.
