REGISTERED LIST(private access)



Paris has an extensive but quite complex transportation network

  • above the ground:
    • buses
    • tramway (3 lines driving around the city)
  • under the ground:
    • ratpmetro
    • regional train (RER) connecting the suburbs.

Stations can be recognized with the following signs:
Transport system is globally operated by the local operator (RATP) with two exceptions:

  • RER is co-operated with national railway company (SNCF);
  • private bus lines are also connecting the airports to the city.

Metro plan

In order to prepare your stay, maps for bus, metro and RER lines can be found on the internet: http://www.ratp.info/touristes/index.php?langue=en&rub=reperer&cat=plan-metro.

By typing in the address, station name or monument name, on the RATP web site (http://www.ratp.info/touristes/index.php?langue=en&rub=reperer) you can find your route. Just be careful and specify the exact time of the day if you expect the travel early in the morning or late in the night: RER and buses get scarce during the night.

You may also download the Metro application for your PDA or smartphone: http://chotto.free.fr/tatami/Metro/index-en.html
