Arriving -- Trains run almost every hour between Arles and Avignon (trip time: 20 min.; 7.50€ one-way) and Marseille (trip time: 1 hr.; 15.30€). Be sure to take local trains from city center to city center, not the TGV, which, in this case, takes more time. If driving, head south along D570N from Avignon.
