Concerns for safety riding RER D in Paris

Jump to last reply

I've arranged an August house swap with a family who live outside of Paris in Ponthierry. That means I'll take the RER D2 train to and from the city daily. Does anyone have experience riding that train at night, and should I have any particular safety concerns? Would it be safer to take a night bus and sit close to the driver? I don't expect to be out past midnight, but it may be after dark, and situations always do seem to be a bit scarier after dark, don't they?

I've ridden the metro and buses many times in the past without incident, but not so much at night, and usually only within the city. As a solo woman traveler, I try to take the extra precaution when I can. Thoughts?
