Autonomous Parisian Transportation Administration Metro

Time : Sunday through Thursday, 5:30 a.m. to 12:40 a.m.; Friday, Saturday, and days before a holiday , 5:30 a.m. to 1:40 a.m.

The Paris metro is one of the easiest ways to get around the city and even out to Charles de Gaulle airport. There are 16 different lines that operate throughout Paris and are differentiated by color, number, and end-of-line station names. It is important to choose the right direction to travel in based on the end-of-line station names because the only way to change direction is to leave the platform and re-enter, which can become costly if using single-ride tickets. It is also important to carefully check the map to avoid missing your stop. Some lines split at key junctions and could take you in the wrong direction if not careful.
Andy’s Notes :

If you plan to catch a last train of the day, it is important to arrive at the station at least half an hour early because different trains leave at different times. It’s also possible to check the departure time online in the public transport’s timetables. It is also worth noting that not all metro lines are accessible to limited mobility persons.
