TRAVEL TIPS

Access
Paris can easily be reached by plane, train or car, due to its location at the crossroads of Europe. It is served by two international airports (CDG and Orly) and a very convenient railway system. The shuttle buses from CDG airport arrive in front of the Palais des Congrès, which is also accessible through all Paris public transports.

City transportation

Metro
A fast and ever-developing means of transport, essential to the Parisian’s life, the metro is probably the best and quickest way to travel within the city. Timetable: it operates from 5:30 to 0:30. Information about the Metro can be obtained from the RATP Website: www.ratp.com 

Bus
Local bus service is also available. Although slower than the Metro or the RER at certain hours of the day (depending on the traffic), the RATP buses (green) are frequent from 8:00 am to 20:00. The services are more irregular after 20:00. The Noctambus service (for night-birds) operates during the night: 10 bus routes lead from the heart of Paris.

Taxi
Where can you find a taxi? At stations, airports and near main traffic thoroughfares in more than 470 taxi ranks. 14 900 taxis are in service in Paris. You can identify a free taxi by the light on its roof and hail it. There will already be an initial charge on the meter. It is customary to leave a tip of up to 10% of the total fare.

Cars
To reach Arts et Métiers Paristech (ENSAM), exit the Boulevard Périphérique (ring-road surrounding Paris) at the “Porte d'Italie”.

Bicycles
Paris provides you with an excellent Self Service “bike hire” system available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Multi pick up and drop off location allows you to pick up your bike from one service point and drop off to another. An unusual and pleasant way to discover the city!
