Help needed with ratp site for Paris bus and metro

Jump to last reply

I spent a good deal of time trying to figure out the ratp site and thought I understood it, but now I'm confused. On the advice of someone on these boards, I printed off a whole bunch of routes, including the maps for departure, duration, and destination. I'm not leaving until the end of June, but thought I would get a jump on it. I just picked random days of the week and times thinking it would apply for when I'm there, but now I'm starting to have my doubts. I printed off a separate schedule for a Sunday when I'm planning on going to Luxembourg Gardens and the Pere-Lachaise Cemetery I accidentally noticed that depending on the hour of the day (11:00 a.m. noon, 12:00 p.m., etc.) I would come up with different time estimations, different stations, and even different line numbers. Since I won't know the exact hour or even which day I will want to catch a bus, does that make it impossible to plan ahead of time? I know some sites are probably more predictable and dependable than others Do you understand what I'm trying to say? I like the idea of going armed with maps that are clear and easy to read and understand.
Any advice?
