All have with c?ur, according to their tastes and their competences, to take part in its development and its dynamism. ITS GOALS:

- To preserve, maintain in operating state and to develop the material travelling put at the reform by the R.T.M. or offered by other organizations. Inter alia the A.R.T.M. has the oldest trolleybus of France, a bus "BERLIET", two motor coaches of tram (the 1258 and 1265), a car scale "RENAULT", a road tractor "LATIL", a simulator of control of bus, etc unfortunately, the road material was vandalisé in 1998 by individuals who were introduced by effraction into the room by boring a wall. Since the setting on road of line 68 and the closing of the network of trolleybus, the collection grew rich by a motor coach PCC (TA 11) and one trolleybus ELR 100 (213).

- To create and animate with the assistance of the Municipality, in a future which we would like near, a museum living worthy of the second town of France, who in addition to his role of safeguarding, could have a teaching vocation, amongst other things, for the younger generations.

- To make known the history and the inheritance of Marseilles transport by organizing conferences and exposures WHO DOES IT ACCOMODATE? Whatever its age, whatever its tastes, each one can find in the A.R.T.M. a sphere of activity allowing him to open out, within a dynamic and cordial team.
