COMING TO CIRM
From Gare Saint-Charles train station
From the station to CIRM you can choose to take a taxi to the Luminy campus (distance 11km, costing from 35 to 45€ according to the time of day. Contact the Events team at CIRM if you'd like to prebook a taxi.
NB: CIRM does not pay for any taxi fares
The alternative is to use the "Metro" (underground/ subway) for about 15 minutes then the bus (the cost of a single ticket covering both is about 1,50€ from a machine or 1,80 € if bought on the bus (or 13€ for a 10-journey pass).
First, get on the "Metro" line 2 (red) direction Ste Marguerite-Dromel. Get off at the "Rond-Point du Prado" stop (last but one) then take Bus Number 921 Jet (fast) or Bus 21 (normal) to the terminus called "Luminy". Travel lasts about 25-40 minutes. CIRM is then located 5-10 minutes away on foot from the bus stop, once you’ve entered through the main gate of the campus.
If you arrive after 21:45, the easiest is to get Night bus number 521 directly from Gare St Charles all the way to the last stop "Campus universitaire de Luminy".
