Marseille Taxi Tips

  1. If you do not speak French, a good way to tell the taxi driver where you want to go is by showing him a piece of paper, or your smartphone, with the address of your destination written on it.
  2. As usual when travelling abroad, beware of taxi scams and double-check that the meter is on.
  3. Consider taking a taxi if you are traveling here late at night as they are often safer than subways and metro stations such as the Marseille-St-Charles railway station.

Wheelchair Accessible Taxis in Marseille

Marseille’s public transport system is one of the lowest rated in France for people with mobility difficulties. The metro, in fact, allows little wheelchair accessibility. There are also very few companies in Marseille that offer wheelchair accessible vehicles. One of them is ACM and can be contacted on +33 04 84 88 51 72.
