Paris Metro service Christmas 2013

14 December 2013.

I enquired what the Metro service would be on 25 December and 26 December 2013 and received the following reply from RATP the public transport operator.

"  I understand your request and I can confirm that the Metro runs on December 25 as a Sunday and public holidays (a little less traffic)and 26 December as a normal day. "

Thats's more or less a normal service.

Joyeux Noël !

Paris Metro & RER - Easter 2013

If you are in Paris over the Easter weekend then you should have no problem with the level of service on public transport.

Public transport on Easter Sunday (Pâques) and Easter Monday (Lundi de Pâques) operates on the timetable of Sunday and Public Holiday.

A slightly less frequent but more than adequate service on the Metro and RER trains.
