The main way to get around in Marseille is via the extensive public transport system, which include bus, metro and tram services around all parts of the city centre and the suburbs. Tickets are transferable across all three modes of transport and can be bought from metros or all shops displaying the official 'RTM' signage. Most buses run until 9pm, with a few continuing until about 12.30am. Travel after dark is best accomplished in taxis, which can be found at most large hotels or on the street. Driving in Marseille is not recommended, as the city centre is full of narrow, one-way streets and parking is limited.
