New year in Paris: what is the free transport all night long?

Like every year, people celebrating New Year’s Eve in Paris and Île-de-France will be able to take advantage of a free public transport offer with extended hours to get home or move around.

Metros, RER, Transiliens or even buses … To avoid regroupings in the midst of a health crisis, RATP and SNCF will indeed operate several lines on the same model as in previous years all New Year’s Eve. Access to the transport network will be free from Friday 5 p.m. to Saturday noon.


Concretely, 6 of the 14 metro lines (lines 1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 14) will be accessible all night. Here the main stations will be open. The other lines will remain open like every Friday until 2 a.m.

To download the map of the metro lines in use, simply click here or consult the map below. Additional information is also available on the dedicated page of the site Île-de-France Mobility.

At the request of the Police Prefecture, however, the following stations will be closed from 7:00 p.m. (trains do not stop and any connections are not provided):

Metro lines 1, 2, 6 RER A Charles-de-Gaulle – Etoile

Regarding the RER, all of the RER A, B, C and D, as well as the Transiliens H, J, L, N, P and R will also run on New Year’s Eve.


In doing so, it will be necessary to count on a train every eighteen minutes in intramural Paris and up to a train every hour in the cities furthest from the capital.


Finally, during the night of December 31 to January 1, all Noctilien bus lines will run like a classic weekend night, from 12:30 a.m. to 5:30 a.m.
