Need help - Train from Marseille airport to Paris

Jump to last reply

I am getting ready to book train tickets from Marseille[MRS] Airport to Gare de Lyon when the new block of reservations open next week on iDTGV.

I see 2 different options when searching for trains [using a date close to the one I need just to see what's the options are]:
#1 - VITROLLES AEROPORT MARSEILLE PROVENCE to MARSEILLE SAINT CHARLES and then MARSEILLE SAINT CHARLES to Paris Gare de Lyon. Trip time approximately 4 hours. The trip from Vitrolles Aeroport Marseille Provence to Marseille St Charles is on TER [ which I know is regional train]. It says this train "does not require seat reservations."

#2 - MARSEILLE PROVENCE AEROPORT TO AIX EN PROVENCE and then AIX EN PROVENCE TGV to Paris Gare de Lyon. Trip time approximately 3.5 hours.
The trip from Marseille Provence Aeroport to Aix says "CAR 59255" and this "does not require seat reservations."

I have looked at the airport website and the sncf website and am confused. I have looked at the airport website to try and figure out the difference in the Vitrolles Aeroport Marseille Provence departure vs. Marseille Provence Aeroport; other than going via Marseilles St Charles or via Aix but don't see anything that explains the slight difference in name. I know the St Charles station is the main rail station in the city of Marseilles.[We took a bus from there to the airport last time we flew out of MRS.]

I looked at this web page: http://www.marseille.aeroport.fr/acces-et-parking/acces/trains

I have 2 questions -
#1- I do not understand what CAR means – is it a train to Aix or a bus or ??
#2 I am trying to figure out the difference in departures locations.

I have tried to not make this more complicated that need be, but fear I have done so. The easiest would be to go via St Charles as I understand the TER/iDTGV route but I prefer to go via Aix to save a bit of time and not have to go into St Charles.

Can anyone sort this out for me? Much thanks~
