Avoid taking a train to Aix-en-Provence TGV station unless you will be met by someone with transport, as this station is more than 10 km from the town centre.
Even if the connections are good (and they're generally not) the combination of TGV train + bus connection to the town center will be slower than taking one of these direct TER trains.
