Where Paris - - Entertainment -

◗ Paris is crossed by 14 Métro lines and five RER (ex­press sub­ur­ban) lines, all num­bered and named for their fi­nal des­ti­na­tion (ter­mi­nus). Did you know that there are 300 sta­tions that make up Paris’ metro sys­tem?

◗ Each Métro trip re­quires one ticket re­gard­less of how many trans­fers you make, though you must buy an ex­tra ticket for the RER out­side the city lim­its. Keep your ticket un­til you exit.

◗ Tick­ets are sold in all sta­tions and in cafés (tabacs) with a ticket sign out­side, sin­gle ( 1.90€/2€ if pur­chased on a bus) or by 10 (un car­net - 14.50€). This map in­cludes the new tramway line. ◗ “Paris Visite” passes of­fer un­lim­ited travel on the Métro and buses (1day, 2-day, 3-day, 5-day). The Métro and RER start run­ning at 5:30am, and stop around 1 am.

◗ While the Métro is an ex­tremely safe way to travel,

watch out for pick­pock­ets in crowded trains and sta­tions. For in­for­ma­tion in English, call the trans­porta­tion com­pany (RATP) di­rectly at
