Information (in English) on the City Bus and Subway system can be found at:
To go downtown, you need to take the Line B1 City Bus to "Castellane" and there take the Subway Line 1 (M1) Direction "La Rose" and stop at "Vieux-Port" station (2 stations from Castellane).
Count at least 1 hour from Campus to be safe; on holidays the buses and subway trains are less frequent than during the working days.
The 21 Bus takes about 30 minutes to go from Luminy to Castellane, then you need to catch the Line 1 (M1) Subway (1 every 9 minutes on average) which takes a bit less than 10 minutes to reach the "Vieux-Port" station.
