Paris 2018 promotes sustainable transport

Paris has the most comprehensive transport network in the world, with buses, tramways, metros, trains, boats, Velib’, Autolib’, shuttles and taxis providing access to all corners of the region.

Paris 2018 commits to a minimum of 50% of journeys made using active mobility, public transport and ride sharing. This is why Paris 2018 systematically offers a public transit pass to all participants who are not residents of Paris Region.

Public Transport

To travel within Paris Region, you will be able to use your Paris 2018 transit pass given to you at the Accreditation Center at Cité de la Mode et du Design (Fashion and Design City). Here is the card designed especially for Gay Games participants! This card will be valid from 6 August to 12 August midnight. A real collector’s item! And participants will get 5 individual tickets for the other 2 days.

The Paris public transport system is run by RATP and consists of the Métro (underground), Tram, RER suburban express train (which interconnects with the Métro inside Paris), bus and Noctilien (night bus). Check the RATP link: https://www.ratp.fr/en

 

You can also enjoy the pleasure of visiting the capital by bicycle with Velib’, a bicycle sharing system. Check: https://www.velib-metropole.fr/en_GB

And you can discover some areas of Paris Region with Auto Lib’, an electric car sharing service. Check: https://www.autolib.eu/en

. Eiffel Tower
. Musée d’Orsay
. Saint-Germain-des-Prés
. Notre-Dame
. Jardin des Plantes / Cité de la Mode et du Design
. Hôtel de Ville
. Louvre
. Champs-Élysées
