Public Transportation Tips

Children under age 4 travel for free on public transport & children under 10 have a 50% reduced rate!

Métro

Even for seasoned Parisians, bringing a stroller on the métro can be a daunting task. Elevators are rare, but are marked on any official métro map with a wheelchair accessible symbol. Many stations have an entrance next to the turn-stiles especially made for strollers, but this requires the assistance of an available employee.

We recommend transporting infants in a portable carrier opposed a stroller if you are taking the métro.

Bus 

The bus system accommodates strollers and is very easy to use. There are dedicated stroller entrance/exit doors on the buses.

You can find timetables and all bus information on the RATP website, or using the Google Maps app.

Taxis

If you require a carseat and would like to take a taxi, you can book a taxi in advance (from the airport, for example) and request a car seat with the company G7 here on their website.

Miscellaneous Tips 

  • Changing tables in restaurants and public spaces are extremely rare. We recommend bringing a mat such as this one.
  • Any of the grocery stores around the city will have a baby aisle with diapers, wipes, formula, food, etc. Names to look for are Simply Market, Monoprix, Carrefour, Franprix, G20. Smaller shops will have a limited selection of baby supplies, so we suggest looking for a large Monoprix for the most choice. 
  • You can order almost anything you need off amazon.fr and have it shipped to your hotel or AirBnb in advance if packing is a concern.
