Each Paris Metro line has a :
- Name simply designated by its two terminal stations (Pont de Levallois - Gallieni) See map below in the squares : "B2" and "H4"
- A color (for Pont de Levallois - Gallieni it is a sort of khaki)
- A number (3) which is presented in a circle with the color of the line
The Direction you should take when you get on a metro is designated by the terminal station.
- So, if you get on at Malhesherbes (C3) and want to travel to Wagram (C3) you would take Direction "Pont de Levallois".
- If you wanted to go to Europe (C3) you'd take Direction "Gallieni".
- If you wanted to go to Monceau (C3) on the blue line 2, you'd go to Villiers then change to line 2 Direction "Porte Dauphine"...the terminal station.
The frequency is about every 3 minutes. Depending on the line and the time of day. During rush hours they can run 1 per minute. So, you don't need to run... there's always a Metro. They operate from about 5h00 to midnight.
