In contrast to almost all other trams in France, the tram in Marseille was never completely withdrawn in the 20th century. However, it had shrunk to one line of 3 kilometres length since the 1960s. Starting in 2007, the network was extended again, currently there are almost 12 kilometres of route. The Bombardier-built 'Flexity Outlook' vehicles got a very special design for Marseilles, which is reminiscent of the bow of a ship and thus illustrates the importance of the port for the city. The Metro consists of two routes and is served by rubber-tyred trains.
Both networks as well as the city buses are operated by → RTM (Régie des Transports de Marseille)
