Bastille Day 2017 in Paris: public transportations

Nothing ever changes on Bastille Day: public transportations drive us crazy! You cannot use your car because of traffic jam, but the RATP thinks about everything and multiplies metros!

To make the most of Paris firework, without running the risk of missing the last metro. The last trains will reach their terminus at 2:15 a.m. on Thursday July 13 and Friday July 14, 2017.

  • 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.: parade
    • Tuileries: closed
    • Concorde: closes but connection ensured
    • Champs-Elysées Clémenceau: eventually closed

To attend the firework let off from the Eiffel Tower, you will have to use the Pont de l’Alma station and the Ecole Militaire station.
As far as Vélib are concerned, we guess that stations located near the Champ de Mars will be full and therefore there will not be accessible. But, we advise you to check the RATP mobile application to get the live info!
