Discover our heritage

For more than a century the history of public transport has been woven into the historical tapestry of the Paris region and its inhabitants. We want to help you discover this important heritage thanks to the “historic lines” collection.

This new window into the past will allow you to find out more about the history of transport and RATP, and discover less well-known historical details such as vanished trades, uniforms, arts and travel tickets.

Over the months, a series of nearly 20 pamphlets will create the full “historic lines” collection.

You will be able to enjoy slideshows and videos to enrich the discovery of local, national and even international events.

Bon voyage…
