Other Transportation in Paris


Paris has more than 160 km of bicycle lanes that divide the capital by 2 axes: from the Bois de Vincennes to the Bois de Boulogne and from the Porte de Pantin to the Porte de Vanves. In addition to these lanes, the riverside expressways that run along the Seine are closed to traffic on Sundays, leaving room for bikers, rollerbladers and hikers.
