Le Parisien and the Mayor's Office have decreed that Sunday 1 October 2017, will be a car free day, from the hours of 11 AM to 6 PM.

The whole area of Paris is affected - except for the 16th arrondissement.

Buses and taxis will run at 30 /km per hour. So I would advise leaving more time to get to airports and train stations.

You can take a taxi to your hotel, but should have a "justification de domicile" (where you live) for proof.

Metro is unaffected.

OpenBus and BigBus will run at 30/km per hour, and will run their regular routes.

If you want to return a rental car, you have to return it before 11 AM or after 6 PM.

Police, ambulances and firemen are not affected.

If you are transporting a handicapped person, you should have a "justification de domicile" for proof.

If you have a plumbing or other emergency, the technicien can visit you.

The open-air markets will be open as usual, their deliveries have already taken place.


Motorcycles and cars are not allowed.
Electric cars are not allowed.

Here are your options:
Walk
Take mass transportation
Electrically-assisted bicycles are allowed
Velib'
Roller skate
Trottinette

Good luck - and hope it's a nice day...
