2. How about public transportation in Paris?
Paris has an extensive public transportation system that is reliable and easy to use. The primary components available are:
- The Metro: There are 14 numbered and colored lines. The number of the line and the direction of travel are always clearly indicated so you know where you’re going. There are lots of stations and they are rarely very far apart.
- The bus: Busses in Paris are a great way to get around because you can experience life in Paris while going from one place to another. The many bus lanes that the City of Paris has created mean they usually avoid the traffic jams.
3. What about biking in Paris?
Paris has a fun, effective and affordable way to explore its streets and neighborhoods and experience the city like a real Parisian. It’s called the VELIB system.
There are lots of Velib stations spread out all around the city (about 300 meters apart, on average). You can get a bicycle at one of these stations and drop it off at another. This is a quick and interesting way to get around, but remember that the traffic in Paris is quite heavy. That’s why you should use the many bike lanes available, indicated on the street by a little green bike.

It is customary in France and in Paris to leave a tip if you are satisfied with the service you get. Here are some common examples:
