Regional trains link the Gare d'Aubagne railway station with Marseille and Toulon. Aubagne was the first commune in France to be completely surrounded by autoroutes: the A50 Marseille-Toulon, A52 Aubagne-Aix-en-Provence and the connecting motorway A501. From 2009, Aubagne made bus travel zero-fare. A 14-kilometre (9-mile), two-line tram network is planned. This project is criticized as it is not common for a city of that size. Line 1 will be from the station to Le Charrel and Line 2 will be from the station to La Penne-sur-Huveaune. Construction started in 2012 for an opening of the first phase in 2014. The tram is long-term projected to be linked with the one of Marseille. The tram will also be zero-fare, making it one the first zero-fare tram in the world, with Tallinn.
