Paris RER

Paris RER Stations Map and Index

The Paris RER is a network consisting of 5 express train lines which connect Paris city centre to surrounding suburbs. In the centre of Paris, the RER acts as an express underground or subway and becomes a ground level commuter train beyond the city centre.

The map displays the Regional Express Network (RER – Réseau Express Régional) Stations – Courtesy of the RATP. You’ll notice that the RER map has a grid: “J to Q” horizontally and “9 to 16” vertically.

Below the RER Map you’ll find the 231 RER stations listed with their grid coordinates. This will help you plan your trip and learn how the “Reseau Express Regional” train system works.

 

Each RER line is designated by:

  1. A letter (A) which is presented in a circle with the color of the line (Sometimes the letter is followed by a number indicating a branch of the main line)
  2. A color (for line A the color is red)

The Direction you should take when you get on the RER is designated by:

  1. The line letter
  2. The terminal destination of the line… which is NOT necessarily the destination of the train. Read on…

Some trains have their terminus BEFORE the END of the line. RER lines have information boards on the platform that clearly show WHICH STOPS a train will make. Only get on a train for which YOUR STOP is indicated.

An example: If you get on at Gare du Nord (M11 on the grid map below) and want to travel to Charles de Gaulle Etoile (C3):

  • You would take line B (blue) (or the green line D) direction Robinson or St Rémy-lès-Chevreuse (heading South)
  • You would change to line A at Chatelet-les-Halles and take Direction “St Germain-en-Laye, Cergy or Poissy (3 branch lines of A)” and get off at Charles de Gaulle (the second stop).
  • Just to make things interesting for you… you could also do the same trip on the metro line 2 with no changes. Up to you to decide…

RER Frequency:

The frequency of the RER varies. More frequent IN PARIS, about every 3 to 5 minutes to 15 to 30 minutes as you get towards the outskirts of Ile de France. Frequency is highest during morning (7h00 to 9h00) and evening (17h00 to 20h00) rush hours. A little less during daytime and the least at night and on Sundays. General running times are from 5h00 to 1h00 (that’s 1am).

 

Ticket Prices:

The RER prices WITHIN PARIS are identical to the Metro. In other words you can go direct from the Etoile to the Gare de Lyon in a few minutes with one metro ticket on the RER (you could even precede and/or prolong this trip on the metro or even another RER line so long as you do NOT leave the underground train system).
If you go BEYOND PARIS “intra-muros” then there are special rates on the RER. This obviously depends on how far you intend to travel. Automatic ticket machines or a ticket counter can give you the exact price and sell you a ticket.

1 Metro/RER (within Paris) ticket costs 1.90€ (as of Dec. 2017). The price of a pack of 10 Metro/RER tickets is 14.50€ (saving over 25%). Children under 4 years old travel free. Children 4-10 pay full fare for a single ticket. But, you can buy a pack of 10 Metro/RER tickets for half price.

P.S. Remember you can get a special Paris RER and Metro Pass called Paris Visite. It is perfect for visiting Paris and its regions and gives you access to the buses the Metro and the RER within Paris plus a number of reduced price and free entertaining bonuses.

Now you’re ready to explore Paris and the Suburbs. Frankly the RER coupled with the Metro is the quickest way to get around.
