Orange Velodrome

How to get to the Orange Velodrome

By Tram

- Metro 2 - The closest tram to the stadium is Rond Point du Prado. This is accessible from numerous city centre stations (Joliette, Gare de Marseille Saint Charles, Perier and Notre Dame) and is a very short journey.
- Trams operate until around midnight.
- If you’re travelling from the old port area, you can catch the metro line 1 and change at station Castellane to line 2.

By Taxi

Taxis are available but costly, around 20 euros from the centre to the stadium.

By Bus

Frequent buses run to the stadium but we recommend the metro.

By Shuttle

Very likely to be a stadium shuttle, we’ll update when we know more.
