History of Colorbus

WHO ARE WE?

A new vision

OF TOURISM IN MARSEILLE

Created in Marseille in 2003, the bus company “Open Tour” changed its name on 28 April 2017 to Colorbüs.

In 2016, Marie-Eva, Nicolas and Bertrand Swaton, Eurosud Swaton Assurances, joined forces with Julien Guedj, founder of the shuttle company Hello Shuttle, to take over Open Tour and try to develop a product that is very popular with cruise passengers who have little time to visit Marseille.

Wanting to share the treasures of the city of Marseille with as many people as possible, they launched an innovative tourist bus service: Colorbüs!

The choice was made for very colourful, easily identifiable buses with a frequency of 20 to 30 minutes between each bus and a service 7 days a week.

The Concept

Colorbüs

Always open double-decker buses where passengers can hop on and off as they please to visit a district or a monument and take the next bus to continue their tour.

In May 2019, Colorbüs opened a new circuit, the blue line, dedicated to the southern districts of Marseille with, among others, the Stade Vélodrome, the Corbusier, the Escale Borély or the Prado beaches and the Vallon des Auffes.

Throughout the 2 tours, original commentaries are broadcast through individual headphones. Each passenger has a selector allowing them to choose the language of their choice: French, English, Spanish, Italian, German, Russian, Chinese or Japanese.

Your ticket allows you to get on and off freely at all stops to visit Marseille, its monuments, its beaches or to take a leisurely stroll.
