Paris metro exit entrance finder

Bonjour Paris visitors!

This page introduces “Par ici!“, a smartphone application for Paris Metro (subway) exit information, available for download on Google Play, App Store.
* Par ici means “this way!” in French.

Problems with Paris Metro exits
Are you aware that the locations of metro stations on the map don’t always align with the actual exits? With numerous exits throughout the Paris Metro and the intricate network of multiple lines converging in the city center, navigating can be confusing. Moreover, many stations, constructed in the early 20th century, lack accessibility features, posing challenges for those with mobility impairments, and when you take the stairs from deep underground to the surface, and realize that you are far away from your destination, you will feel very fatigued.

And the status quo is…
So how do locals and travelers do…?
It is common to locate each exit on a map posted on the platform or near the ticket gates.
However, at stations where ticket gates are in multiple locations, many passengers are unsure of which direction to go on the platform after getting off the train.
And since the map only shows public buildings and places, it is difficult to find private facilities.

Solutions by Par ici!
The Par ici!app displays all the exits of all Paris Metro stations on Google Maps and provides the nearest point by car number for each exit and for transfers to other lines. In addition, each exit icon is displayed by elevator, escalator, stairs to help you plan your route, especially for those with limited mobility.
Once downloaded, you can read the terms and use, privacy policy, usage manuals and route maps without purchasing a pass.
