How about bus 82 in Paris!!!

Well , I dare to post about the bus network in Paris and was well taken even if still largely unknown to many. Again, my favorite mode of transport is the car, but living in France, I have tried all types of public transports modes. For me if need to take one I do the bus and done even in other countries in Europe. Enough said

After seen so many bloggers write about Paris, I can only feel lucky to have worked in it, lived nearby, and be able to visit every month. Because ,Paris once bites you it’s an eternal love affairs. And I love my bus 82 as briefly mention in my other post on buses in Paris, the 82 has been my workhorse in the last few years.


Mainly because it has been my regular routine since living in the Morbihan Breton no 56. The circuit is almost the same each time ; I take the train ,TGV, this time from Vannes direction the wonderful gracious train station of Montparnasse in Paris, of course. I rather stay above ground and soak in the city. Why take the underground when you are in the most beautiful city in the world; Paris for enjoyment take the bus instead. It’s easy!


Right by bd Montparnasse in the place 18 juin 1940 square , you take the bus 82 across the street direction Hôpital Americain (in Neuilly sur Seine dept 92) and the way back its the Luxembourg (as is the jardin du luxembourg). The bus 82 schedule now is here : RATP bus 82 line in pdf file

You can find the bus 82 and any other line in various modes at RATP here: RATP transports schedules bus in English

It’s really a better deal than the tourist bus , a lot cheaper and you see it all!

I take it round trip and it was easy, nice with available seat and near to where I was going and coming; besides above ground the beautiful Paris . The ticket T on the bus is 2€ at counter or machine is 1,90€; cheaper if use it several times like i do buy the carnet of 10 for 16,90€ (or 1,69€ per ticket). Again , great deal.

The weather can be cold or hot, but no matter the bus has heating and AC all the way.  It is great to walk to the stops/arrêt and knowing the hourly schedule no need to wait much;  and take the ride by bus.  This bus 82 takes you into the Invalides, and pass you in front of St Louis Church, and then the monument to peace and the Eiffel just in front of you. You go behind the école militaire and into avenue de Suffren. Great!!!

You, also, past wonderful less known churches such as Saint Françis-Xavier Blvd des Invalides.  As well as one of my cinemas near my old office in rue d’Odessa in Montparnasse, the Gaumont Pathé. Official webpage here:Cinemas Pathe Gaumont at Montparnasse


Nearer my office  I eat at two of my favorite restos; La Terrace by 7 a wonderful restaurant in the Place de l’école Militaire, more here to read about it:  Restaurant La Terrace du 7


And a nostalgic one where I have taken many friends visitors as well as old VT friends to Paris on avenue de Suffren, the 7éme Vin resto; more in official webpage here: Restaurant 7éme Vin


The return by bus as well it took me right in front of another of my favorite restos Pizza Pino in bd Montparnasse with the tour Montparnasse in view.  Just well fed before taking my TGV train back home. More here and a great place upstairs to meet you friends ::)  Official Pizza Pino Montparnasse


Once back in Vannes train station, got around the station to reach my free parking and go home in 35 minutes, nice and easy. A great way to go to Paris, and I do it for a long time every month, now less maybe once in a couple of months or so. Hope you enjoy the bus and remember, 82 is tops!!! Just like Paris!!!

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
