New Year's Eve in Paris: metro, RER, bus... free transport all night on New Year's Eve


For the first New Year's Eve without health restrictions or strikes on the network for three years, Île-de-France Mobilités is putting in place its d

"For New Year's, let us drive you home."

This is the message that Île-de-France Mobilités (IDFM) sends to Ile-de-France residents who are about to start New Year's Eve and who are strongly encouraged to prefer public transport to their personal vehicle to return home.

After three years of rather special New Year's Eve (against the backdrop of health restrictions in 2021, under curfew in 2020 and at the heart of the RATP strike against the pension reform in 2019), IDFM is putting in place this year 100% of its New Year's Eve transport system.

It is based on the opening of several metro lines and trains throughout the night and on free transport.

They will be accessible without subscription or ticket, from 5 p.m. this Saturday and until noon on Sunday.

6 metro lines open all night…

Lines 1, 2, 5, 6, 9 and 14 will play overtime all night.

They will continue to welcome travelers after the metro's usual closing time (at 2:15 a.m. on weekends).

But you may have to walk a little longer than usual to be able to use them.

With the exception of line 14, automatic, which will operate normally, the other metros open continuously will only serve certain stations during the night period


The entire RATP network will return to its usual operation (with service to all stations) on Sunday from 5:30 a.m.

… and 10 RER and train lines

The RER A, B, C and D as well as the Transilien lines H, J, L, N, P and R will also remain in operation beyond the normal closing time.

But, as on the metro network, it will be a partial service.

Only RER A and B will run, in both directions, throughout the night.

The other lines open at night will run only in the Paris-suburb direction, after the usual end of service time.

Small consolation: unlike previous years, where only a few stations were served, the RER and Transilien lines open continuously will be omnibus and will serve all the stations on their route.

Pay attention to passing frequencies

The special New Year's Eve system provides for the passage of a train every 18 minutes on the central section of RER A (between Vincennes and Nanterre-Préfecture) and RER B (between Bourg-la-Reine and Aulnay).

But the gap between two trains rises to 35 minutes beyond.

On the other “night” lines, the intervals between two trains will range from 30 minutes to an hour depending on the branch… and the distance from the capital.

On certain ends of Transilien lines (the J after Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, the H on the Ermont-Eaubonne - Persan-Beaumont section, the L from Saint-Lazare, etc.), only three trains are scheduled throughout the night.

The departure times for these trains are available on the route planner on the Île-de-France Mobilités website and application.

On the T4 line (the only tram line integrated into the New Year's Eve system), night owls can bet on the passage of a train every 30 minutes to connect Bondy to Aulnay-sous-Bois.

The Noctilien network in “classic” mode, but free

Night buses will normally run from 12:30 a.m. to 5:30 a.m., like a “classic” weekend night.

With one difference: the 40 or so bus lines concerned will be, like the metros, RER and Transilien, accessible free of charge for New Year's Eve.

Bad luck for the inhabitants of Poissy (Yvelines): they will not be able to bet on the new Noctilien line N155 – open between Saint-Lazare station and that of Poissy-Nord – to return from their New Year's Eve.

The line will welcome its very first passengers on January 2 (Monday) at 12:30 a.m.
