Services available in our metro and RER stations

To make travelling easier for our 10 million passengers daily, we are very attentive to the quality of our spaces and services. In our metro and RER stations, we have installed amenities for your convenience, including elevators, escalators and public restrooms. And thanks to new technology, we regularly propose new services, such as free WiFi or the Zenway information displays.

Elevators, escalators and restrooms in our stations

Since 1992, we have conducted a vast accessibility programme to make 57 RER rer ligneA and rer ligneB stations accessible for persons with reduced mobility: installation of elevators, wider passageways at ticket gates, and staff training to assist persons with reduced mobility. These stations are clearly marked by the access pictogram on our line maps.

Moreover, to further enhance mobility, we propose a new service that allows you to verify the current operating status of elevators, escalators and moving sidewalks in stations on lines metro ligne4 and metro ligne14.

For your comfort, we also have installed public restrooms in our passenger spaces. RATP staff in our stations and at our information and ticket desks can provide you with more information. Note: to access certain public restrooms you must have a valid ticket or travel pass.

Zenway – passenger information at your fingertips and at a glance

Zenway is an itinerary search engine that is more intuitive. Using large tactile displays, Zenway allows you to make multi-modal itinerary searches and access practical information about the station’s immediate area – map, address search, points of interest, available services – in 7 languages. This orientation information rounds out the real-time traffic information provided on our multimodal displays.

You can already explore our Zenway passenger information displays at Gare de Lyon, Montparnasse – Bienvenüe, Denfert Rochereau, Charles de Gaulle – Etoile, Les Halles, Madeleine, Gallieni, Concorde, Porte Maillot, Marne-la-Vallée Chessy, Gare du Nord, Saint-Lazare, Val d’Europe, Bir-Hakeim, Bastille, Opéra, La Défense, Saint-Michel, Grands-Boulevards, Havre-Caumartin, and Palais Royal – Musée du Louvre.

Eventually, all of the network’s metro and RER stations most frequented by tourists will be equipped with Zenway.

What to do if you lose an object?

If you have lost an object, we offer you the possibility of launching a search for it on the entire metro, bus, RER and tramway network.

You must inform a staff member of the loss, providing a description of the object and your contact information.

If the object is found on the RATP network, you will be notified by SMS or email according to your preference. You will also be informed of the procedures to follow at the Lost & Found office of the Paris Police.

If you have lost an object on the metro or RER today (or within the past 48 hours), contact the station agent.

You may also contact Customer Service: 3246 (0.80€ per min + the cost of a local call).

If you have lost an item on the bus today, and in view of optimising your chances of recovering the object, we recommend that you call Customer Service at 3246 (0.80€ per min + the cost of a local call) after 10 a.m. on the following day. Objects found inside buses are recorded in a database when the bus returns to the depot.

What to do if you find an object

If you find an object in the metro or RER, please give it to an agent in the station or at the information counter, rather than to the train driver.
