Different transportation means and driving licenses in Paris

Dernière mise à jour : 26 oct. 2021

One of the most important skills that you have to learn when you move to a new country, for family life and free time and mostly for work, is now moving quickly and safely through the new town you live in.

In this short article, I want to try to advise you to move easily to Paris. First of all, we have to distinguish between two big categories: public transports and private transports.

Public transport in Paris, a puzzle

The first category counts metro lines, buses, urban trains called “transiliens”(that run through the urban stations of the city), inter-urban trains called RER(réseau express régional that are helpful also to reach airports).

Private transport in Paris

The private transport ways consist of taxis, driver’s cars (UBER, Kapten etc.), hiring vehicles (bicycles, scooters, cars..) just"walk".

Our best advice :

Some of the best advice for people who wants to “acclimatize” with Paris means of transport could be those:

1) Download ASAP An app that shows the best way (by public means or private transport) to reach your destination (I suggest the most reliable Citymapper)

2) Pay attention, in particular, these days, at the strikes! Your trip could become a nightmare and you have to prepare in a short time a plan B to reach your destination! Citymapper takes a strike into account.
