Paris metro information

The first metro leaves the terminus at 5.30am. The last metro arrives at the terminal station at 1.15am, except on Fridays, Saturdays and on nights before a holiday, when the service ends at 2.15am. Time between trains range from 2 minutes during rush hour up to 13 minutes during late night hours, holidays, and Sundays, depending on the line and station.

Entrance is by automated gate, opened by tickets, Navigo travel cards or Paris Visite travel card. Gates return metro tickets for passengers to keep.

Metro tickets are sold mostly at automated machines at metro stations. They are gradually being phased out and replaced by Navigo travel cards. The new Navigo Easy is practical for occasional travelers and tourists and a good alternative to the metro tickets.

The card can be bought at metro stations. It should then be loaded with transport tickets. The card is not nominative. It can be loaned or transferred. During a trip, however, each traveler must carry and have validated their own card.

Paris metro facts

The metro is remarkable for its density within the city and its Art Nouveau architecture. The 214 kilometers long network runs mostly underground and has 303 stations. The 16 lines are numbered 1 to 14 and 3bis and 7bis. Lines are identified by number and colour. Direction of travel is indicated by the terminus. The metro is the second busiest subway system in Europe, after the Moscow metro, and the tenth-busiest in the world. It carried 1.615 billion passengers in 2018. It is one of the densest metro systems in the world, with 245 stations within the 86.9 km2 of the city. Chatelet Les Halles is the world's largest metro station. The first line opened on 19 July 1900, during the World's Fair. The system expanded quickly and the core netork was finished by the 1920s. The network grew saturated during the 1950s. The solution in the 1960s was to revive a project abandoned at the end of the 19th century: joining suburban lines to new underground portions in the city centre as the regional express network (RER). The RER plan initially included one east-west line and two north-south lines. These new lines were inaugurated in 1977 and their wild success outperformed all the most optimistic forecasts to the extent that line A is the most used urban rail line in the world with nearly 300 million journeys a year. In 1998, Line 14 was inaugurated. It was the first fully new metro line in 63 years and one of the two fully automatic lines within the network along with Line 1. In 1999, the RER line E was inaugurated.
