Bus question for Robespierre or other Paris experts

Jump to last reply

I've become a real bus aficionado and rarely take the metro anymore. But there's one big problem I have: In unfamiliar neighborhoods, at a large intersection, I find it so difficult to find the right bus stop for my preferred bus going in the right direction.

Surely one doesn't have to run around the nearby streets looking at every bus stand. I know how to use the route maps online. And I use the neighborhood maps. But those neighborhood maps only show that a bus stops....not which bus.

I seem to recall a couple of times I saw maps on the wall of metro stations....neighborhood maps that showed which bus stopped where. Is that right? Do all metro stations have such a map?

Is that what everyone else does when they don't know where the bus stop is....they go down in the metro station and find that map? It would be just like me to have overlooked such an important feature. But I hope you tell me I did and that such maps do indeed exist !!!!!
