Achat de tickets de transport impossible dans la version anglophone
by Lapoulette on 2020/05/18 07:19
Si l’on était obligé de télécharger la version anglophone de cet appli (il existe bien des gens qui ont vécu dans d’autres pays et donc qui utilise Apple Store d’autres pays), impossible de 1) télécharger/utiliser la version française et 2) la version anglophone ne comprends pas la possibilité d’acheter des tickets. :-| Et pas de possibilité d’opter pour la version française...
Great asset for Paris visitors
by memassachusetts on 2020/02/05 09:36
I don’t know what I’d do without this app. It is especially useful at nights when waits can be long. Also during the metro strike frequently work-arounds were necessary. The app really helped.
Strike and strike again
by Tdw😀 on 2019/12/16 04:22
We don’t understand why they strike and RATP (public service) just blocks Paris because they want to keep privilèges other don’t have 🤮
So annoying
by Djdoucement on 2019/09/05 12:56
Difficult to navigate and incredibly annoying. All I want is find a route, I don’t want to enter my “home” address and I don’t want to create nicknames for every place I go. This is an aggravating and unpleasant update to this app.
Mise à jour à revoir!
by Pauline_moreeey on 2019/08/11 18:03
Super appli jusqu’à la récente mise à jour. Désormais beaucoup moins pratique pour chercher les horaires de passage des bus, trains etc. L’appli était bien plus simple avant !
Zero pointé
by bynel on 2019/08/02 07:22
Alors que l’application d’origine était très bien faite, celle-ci est pitoyable!! Pourquoi faire bien quand on peut faire nul!
Widget ?
by Blanog on 2019/07/26 13:41
Thanks for updating, the app already works a lot better ! Still waiting for the widget to come back though... !
Really bad update !!
by Skizoile on 2019/07/17 13:34
I don’t like this update because i can’t see my bus or rer schedule like on old update. Please kill this update and go back to previous version !
Nul
by Majdol on 2019/07/15 19:58
On ne voit pas tres bien le temps d’attente, ca enlève toute utilité a l’appli
Really bad update 👎
by Thanh-Nhon Nguyen on 2019/07/11 15:30
I am so annoyed by this new update that I make my very first review on Appstore. Been happy using this app for years without any trouble but this version has lost it all. You can no more see how many time you have to wait for the next train/tram/bus around you. You can no more see the list of stations of a line. You can no more feel comfortable figuring out how the app works. Please consider an other update.
Give us back the previous version!
by globeotter on 2019/07/10 08:52
Cette application est super pour les non parisiens : elle permet de trouver en temps réel un bon itinéraire. Mais pour les parisiens qui connaissent déjà les trajets optimaux et autres plans de bus par cœur c'est une horreur ! Pas de plan ligne par ligne, pas de possibilité de trouver un les horaires en temps réel de passage des bus ou tram par station. Bref parisiens, fuyez cette nouvelle version et gardez la précédente !
No more widget!
by lgsoltek on 2019/07/04 10:43
This new version removed the notification centre widget that I use every day!!! Bring it back!
Where are the 351 from cdg t2 to Paris, the 26?
by al frede on 2019/07/02 06:28
Am l missing something?
Je veux passer à la version précédente
by Eclectica07 on 2019/06/28 05:47
Lisez avant de mettre à jour. La nouvelle version est moins ergonomique. Elle a en outre supprimé des informations utiles comme la possibilité de voir les propositions de trajet antérieures et ultérieures à l’horaire de départ choisi, ce qui fait qu’on est coincés avec la liste de résultats affichés à partir de l’heure de départ choisie par l’application en appliquant sa marge de confort (quelques minutes après la saisie de la recherche) et on ne peut pas voir les options antérieures. Malheureusement une fois téléchargé la nouvelle version on ne peut plus faire de downgrade.
Must have
by 99))(( on 2018/09/30 15:00
If you’re going to ride the bus, you must have thus app. It’s not always right due to constant construction in Paris, but it’s pretty close.
Good as hell
by LuvTheLake420 on 2018/02/13 00:04
This app is ESSENTIAL to navigating Paris as a tourist. If it can get a drunk American home at 1 a.m. in a snowstorm, anyone can use it.
Awesome app makes Metro easy in Paris!
by PleaseJustTheFacts on 2017/09/22 13:33
Love this app. I never need to find a map any more to get around Paris quickly and easily. I like the ability to pick "fastest" or "least walking," and the ability to review a few choices. Great stuff!
Necessary app in Paris
by Youki2 on 2017/08/28 09:25
Works just fine to take advantage of the best public transportation system of a big capital.
Works great.
by H Khan Tx on 2017/08/07 19:56
I am pleased with the app. It gave me accurate info on getting around using Paris metro, better than using google maps
Don't go to France without this app!
by Guzman62 on 2017/07/19 01:05
Spent a week in Paris and this app was a huge help! Great for navigating public system in Paris. You will not be disappointed.
Clunky
by SG NY on 2017/05/28 00:34
The official transit app for Paris, with real-time subway, bus, and tram times for defined routes or spots nearby on a map. Great source of info but clunky interface with lots of options that can't be turned off (car and bike share stations for example) or that require too much scrolling (a prompt for routes and default stations sit on top of list of available transport even if irrelevant to a selected map area). The app Transit is much more intuitive and informative but the RATP agency will not allow it to license actual real time GPS info. So the RATP app may be more accurate if looking primarily for a way to figure out when the next train or bus will come, but it is still not that user friendly.
Best Paris transport app
by Hhuntington2 on 2017/05/27 08:10
So I found this incredibly useful for writing the buses. And I found the buses to be way more useful and pleasant than the metro. This app looks at your location and find the best route for you. You can even deselect options such as the train if you only want to take the bus. I found the bus to be much more useful, less crowded, with more options. This app made finding those options a snap. This is a must have app for Paris.
Manually choose English
by Asshskcnd on 2017/05/17 19:49
Love this app so much but it would be really helpful if there was a settings option to put the app into English as my phone is in French but I'm not fluent 😁
Excelente Opción
by enriqueplata on 2017/04/29 10:58
La mejor opción para moverte por París en el transporte público.👍🏼👌🏼
Practical tool
by NerfB on 2017/01/04 11:17
Great way to determine the fastest route between two points in Paris. Provides times and connections. Much better than winging it on the metro every time as bus routes included!
Excelente!
by Soutiner on 2016/12/23 22:17
Muy buena app!
Car commercials on a public transport app!
by Martin's opinion on 2016/03/25 16:33
Also they use a dated map. Additionally, when you enlarge the map, it turns black -- horrible. There is a much better alternative by the supervising company (STIF) - an app called "Vianavigo"
A disaster!
by Yaskl on 2015/10/03 19:24
This app is terrible. I had to use it for the buses as google maps doesn't seem to have access to this information anymore. The bus schedule is not accurate, the walking directions between stops are total non-sense, the addresses are not recognized when you type them. I wish google maps would presents the buses and trams.
Worked great for me
by Robert the Red on 2015/09/17 08:32
On my recent trip to Paris, this app was very useful. The Metro is pretty easy, but the RATP app is nearly essential for finding bus routes. And it works for address to address rout finding -- helps with the walking parts as well, showing a Google map.
Crashes
by Yellowcat!! on 2015/09/04 07:45
Crashes whenever I try to plan a journey. Never gets past that. Please fix soon! Other than that the app is excellent!
Broken
by Cvonk13 on 2015/08/27 16:10
Crashes when I try to plan a journey... Please fix
Advertising, really?
by neverclockwise on 2015/02/18 11:33
Every time I open the app, an ad pops up. RATP makes money selling metro tickets, and it makes no sense for this app to be ad-supported. The app is already wonky as it is without this extra nuisance. The one star is for pissing out of the bucket.
Beaucoup trop compliqué
by clemence.r on 2014/12/19 18:25
Le systeme de menu est trop compliqué. La version précédente était plus accessible et c'était plus rapide de trouver ce dont j'avais besoin.
yet another Horrible update
by Brod222222 on 2014/11/13 11:08
finally when I was used to using the application again, you change it yet again. What you have done to the homepage now is criminal and completely unusable. with every attempt at updating the application, you make it worse and worse
Application pas fiable
by Fjellstev on 2014/10/13 06:56
Une application qui estime Très mal le temps d'attente.
Paris metro/ RER
by Sukhpal Jassi on 2014/08/01 03:47
Great app. Even works without wifi access. It's a must app if you are visiting Paris.
Bug in emailing search result
by bcpaulos on 2014/07/11 21:29
This app offers the ability to send the results of a route search to your email. Nice idea. Except it doesn't actually work. There is no "send" button, nor a "cancel" button, so it makes a cul de sac. When the problem gets fixed it should instead offer to save the search offline, within the app, including the map graphic.
Very useful
by ourblueface on 2014/06/22 06:05
Nice app. Can't understand why one who takes the time to learn how to use it would not find it useful. It gives precise instructions on times and walking involved for various modes of transport depending on departure date and time, with options of faster modes, amount of walking, and departure times. It could be improved by allowing one to mail a map and not just a verbal summary. Also, it took me a moment to discover that I needed to tap twice to send the mail. Why no send button?
Nulle
by Ratp Frequent user on 2014/06/15 20:04
Tellement nulle que je suis prêt à payer pour obtenir l'ancienne version! Je ne l'utilise plus..
Absolutely awful & convoluted
by Tavallai on 2014/06/15 14:02
It's as of the folks at RATP - or their media agency - decided to put the user last. This app is the very ANTITHESIS of a good transit application. A transit user wants to know how to get where they're going in as little time as possible. This latest version if the RATP app throws so many stumbling blocks in the way if actually finding useful info that it renders itself completely useless.
Very useful for the metro schedules!
by Edgarglobal on 2014/05/27 12:56
Very useful app, specially for the schedules of the metro! Easy to use!
Great resource for touring Paris
by ricburwal on 2014/05/24 18:27
Highly recommend this app for visitors to Paris who want to do a lot of touring around. It allows you to find out how to get between locations in the city using both Metro and the extensive bus services, which can give you a real view of the city, and many more options for stops than with just the Metro.
Frustrating and useless!
by Mila000007 on 2014/04/16 17:57
It wasn't able to produce one single itinerary, not one. It could be a great app if only one thing would work. One day it won't open, the next it will just charge forever and the next it won't find any address. Bring back the old ratp please!
Ok
by figliodepapa on 2014/04/12 18:00
I don't seem to see anything new. Bothering thing ---- It erased all the itineraries I had previously saved. Extremely bother thing #2 They could have made the exits of the stations more easy to identify. But they are there. A lot of changes to the interface, but why? Where exactly is the improvement? I'm not having the same problems the other reviewers seem to be having. Working, it's working. It's just seems more untidy than it was before.
If I just could open it....
by Gabysqq on 2014/04/12 10:26
It won't open! And I really hope I won't lose my info
Super appli
by Gatsé on 2014/04/09 22:01
Une application très bien pensée, super boulot !
Crash, crash, crash
by Phutcher1243 on 2014/04/09 21:00
Wow.. It won't even start up. I've killed the app now twice and each time it just crashes and dumps me back to the home screen. If the RATP shared their data openly someone could make a real app for everyone to use. Seriously, please fix this app so I can use it.
Worst update ever
by Bob19792979 on 2014/04/09 06:16
I was just transitioned to the new RATP app and I dislike very much. I have tried to load my old bus routes to get the times and nothing works. I also lost all of my saved routes. The old app worked just fine. I used the app multiple times a day. Now I am without an important app.
Couldn't find a single itinerary
by Dll4 on 2014/04/08 16:26
Failed to produce a single itinerary! Tried multiple stations, and always failed to return anything.
Horrible! It deleted everything!
by Mongolianmonkey on 2014/04/08 08:02
This app now isn't even worth one star. I don't know where these people have their heads, but it seems to be a place where the sun don't shine. This was a wonderful app that I used several times each day in order to catch the bus in Paris, where I live. But now, everything is gone. There's nothing but a blank screen. Even if they brought back the old app, as they should, all my lines and bus stops would still be deleted and I would have to start from scratch. C'est vraiment dégoûtant ce qu'ils ont fait. Dégueulasse! Je vous maudit, la RATP !
App pourrie
by NewFreeNickname on 2014/03/24 07:21
En plus de l'ergonomie au maximum moyenne, elle a besoin d'une connexion internet pour fonctionner... comme si les plans des lignes changerait tous les heures. Pour exactement les mêmes informations regardez plutôt l'app Vianavigo qui elle fonctionne off line.
Great app
by Jimenezdilone on 2014/03/08 22:04
As long as you can read a map and are good with directions this is a great app to have if your are traveling to paris in train. Also I suggest you get the weekly passes for zones 1-5 they are a life saver and can be used with busses and trains in those zones
Bad
by nickysfcalif on 2014/02/23 09:14
Entering a metro station name is a pain. (App does recognize saint lazare!) Useless app.
Good App
by Drift240sx on 2014/02/19 00:09
A great app with all of the information you need. Allow the option to be used offline. I'd imagine a lot of people who don't have service while visiting Paris would like to be able to use the app.
Yeah
by Blackhawkofdoom on 2014/01/30 13:39
It's an app. Nuff' said.
Very good Paris metro app
by DrScreenplay on 2013/12/14 12:41
Worked great helping us get around. Would be better if directions could be used offline though.
Useful with offline mode
by berowie on 2013/12/10 16:24
Very nice guide to the Metro and trains. Be sure to launch and download the street map before you go. Searchable routes work well and let you choose quickest or fewest transfers.
Magnifique

Would be perfect. This app is also very lag compared to its "visit Paris by metro-RATP "
Essential for visitors to Paris!
by Soccer Coach on 2013/08/19 09:46
Great app for traveling around Paris. You put in the desired location, and your current location (if you don't know, let the GPS enter it), and the time you want to leave. RATP will tell you connecting information and by using the NEXT button, you can see the suggestions for what to do if you missed the connection. RATP works in English and French. We use this App to get to Versailles and to the CDG airport.
Idea is good, but not well executed
by Davidzfr on 2013/07/16 15:55
One thing I don't like about other Transport APP is that I have to pick a station as my starting point or destination, but this app allows you to choose a specific address as your departing point and destination. This is very practical, especially when it also includes the Bus system. For example, I'm close to two different stations of two different lines, with this app, it will tell you which stain is more practical to get to your destination while other normal app needs you to choose in the first place a station to show you how to get to your destination. However, this app is badly designed, it's buggy, laggy, not like an iOS app, not to mention a good one. Hope the dev team will improve the app and it will become more and more fluent and responsive.
Broken bus times update
by timoelliott on 2012/12/18 07:22
Great app, except from some interface niggles - but atest version broke my bus bookmarks, won't let me create new ones, and real-time bus times are different between the app and the shelters (latter is correct)
Useful app for visiting Paris and taking Metro, bus, or RER
by studioglyphic on 2012/07/31 15:23
After encountering endless stairways on the Metro while lugging around the child, stroller, etc., we decided to try our luck with the buses. Couldn't have done it without this official app from RATP. Note that the app does require a data connection in order to download individual route maps or schedule travel, so sign up for International roaming with your carrier, or get a SIM for your unlocked device. Even without a data plan, you can probably preload some of the route maps at a wifi hotspot and refer to them later. The system maps seemed to work without a data connection. Also, while the screenshots in the App Store are in French, the app does recognize your device's language setting and will work in English.
Super pratique!
by 1584st on 2012/07/24 04:38
Une application complète et vraiment pratique! Ça va m'éviter de faire la touriste avec mon mini-plan et pouvoir planifier mon trajet en temps réel. Franchement, bravo RATP! Vive la technologie! :)

by Yaskl on 2015/10/03 19:24
This app is terrible. I had to use it for the buses as google maps doesn't seem to have access to this information anymore. The bus schedule is not accurate, the walking directions between stops are total non-sense, the addresses are not recognized when you type them. I wish google maps would presents the buses and trams.
Absolutely awful & convoluted
by Tavallai on 2014/06/15 14:02
It's as of the folks at RATP - or their media agency - decided to put the user last. This app is the very ANTITHESIS of a good transit application. A transit user wants to know how to get where they're going in as little time as possible. This latest version if the RATP app throws so many stumbling blocks in the way if actually finding useful info that it renders itself completely useless.

Great way to determine the fastest route between two points in Paris. Provides times and connections. Much better than winging it on the metro every time as bus routes included!
Don't go to France without this app!

Spent a week in Paris and this app was a huge help! Great for navigating public system in Paris. You will not be disappointed.

finally when I was used to using the application again, you change it yet again. What you have done to the homepage now is criminal and completely unusable. with every attempt at updating the application, you make it worse and worse

I don't seem to see anything new. Bothering thing ---- It erased all the itineraries I had previously saved. Extremely bother thing #2 They could have made the exits of the stations more easy to identify. But they are there. A lot of changes to the interface, but why? Where exactly is the improvement? I'm not having the same problems the other reviewers seem to be having. Working, it's working. It's just seems more untidy than it was before.
Good App
by Drift240sx on 2014/02/19 00:09
A great app with all of the information you need. Allow the option to be used offline. I'd imagine a lot of people who don't have service while visiting Paris would like to be able to use the app.
Necessary app in Paris

Works just fine to take advantage of the best public transportation system of a big capital.
Good as hell
by LuvTheLake420 on 2018/02/13 00:04
This app is ESSENTIAL to navigating Paris as a tourist. If it can get a drunk American home at 1 a.m. in a snowstorm, anyone can use it.
Frustrating and useless!
by Mila000007 on 2014/04/16 17:57
It wasn't able to produce one single itinerary, not one. It could be a great app if only one thing would work. One day it won't open, the next it will just charge forever and the next it won't find any address. Bring back the old ratp please!
Very good Paris metro app

Worked great helping us get around. Would be better if directions could be used offline though.
Horrible! It deleted everything!
by Mongolianmonkey on 2014/04/08 08:02
This app now isn't even worth one star. I don't know where these people have their heads, but it seems to be a place where the sun don't shine. This was a wonderful app that I used several times each day in order to catch the bus in Paris, where I live. But now, everything is gone. There's nothing but a blank screen. Even if they brought back the old app, as they should, all my lines and bus stops would still be deleted and I would have to start from scratch. C'est vraiment dégoûtant ce qu'ils ont fait. Dégueulasse! Je vous maudit, la RATP !
Crash, crash, crash
by Phutcher1243 on 2014/04/09 21:00
Wow.. It won't even start up. I've killed the app now twice and each time it just crashes and dumps me back to the home screen. If the RATP shared their data openly someone could make a real app for everyone to use. Seriously, please fix this app so I can use it.
So annoying
by Djdoucement on 2019/09/05 12:56
Difficult to navigate and incredibly annoying. All I want is find a route, I don’t want to enter my “home” address and I don’t want to create nicknames for every place I go. This is an aggravating and unpleasant update to this app.

Really bad update 👎
by Thanh-Nhon Nguyen on 2019/07/11 15:30
I am so annoyed by this new update that I make my very first review on Appstore. Been happy using this app for years without any trouble but this version has lost it all. You can no more see how many time you have to wait for the next train/tram/bus around you. You can no more see the list of stations of a line. You can no more feel comfortable figuring out how the app works. Please consider an other update.

by timoelliott on 2012/12/18 07:22
Great app, except from some interface niggles - but atest version broke my bus bookmarks, won't let me create new ones, and real-time bus times are different between the app and the shelters (latter is correct)
Car commercials on a public transport app!
by Martin's opinion on 2016/03/25 16:33
Also they use a dated map. Additionally, when you enlarge the map, it turns black -- horrible. There is a much better alternative by the supervising company (STIF) - an app called "Vianavigo"

Achat de tickets de transport impossible dans la version anglophone
by Lapoulette on 2020/05/18 07:19
Si l’on était obligé de télécharger la version anglophone de cet appli (il existe bien des gens qui ont vécu dans d’autres pays et donc qui utilise Apple Store d’autres pays), impossible de 1) télécharger/utiliser la version française et 2) la version anglophone ne comprends pas la possibilité d’acheter des tickets. :-| Et pas de possibilité d’opter pour la version française...
Great asset for Paris visitors
by memassachusetts on 2020/02/05 09:36
I don’t know what I’d do without this app. It is especially useful at nights when waits can be long. Also during the metro strike frequently work-arounds were necessary. The app really helped.

Cette application est super pour les non parisiens : elle permet de trouver en temps réel un bon itinéraire. Mais pour les parisiens qui connaissent déjà les trajets optimaux et autres plans de bus par cœur c'est une horreur ! Pas de plan ligne par ligne, pas de possibilité de trouver un les horaires en temps réel de passage des bus ou tram par station. Bref parisiens, fuyez cette nouvelle version et gardez la précédente !

Je veux passer à la version précédente
by Eclectica07 on 2019/06/28 05:47
Lisez avant de mettre à jour. La nouvelle version est moins ergonomique. Elle a en outre supprimé des informations utiles comme la possibilité de voir les propositions de trajet antérieures et ultérieures à l’horaire de départ choisi, ce qui fait qu’on est coincés avec la liste de résultats affichés à partir de l’heure de départ choisie par l’application en appliquant sa marge de confort (quelques minutes après la saisie de la recherche) et on ne peut pas voir les options antérieures. Malheureusement une fois téléchargé la nouvelle version on ne peut plus faire de downgrade.

Awesome app makes Metro easy in Paris!
by PleaseJustTheFacts on 2017/09/22 13:33
Love this app. I never need to find a map any more to get around Paris quickly and easily. I like the ability to pick "fastest" or "least walking," and the ability to review a few choices. Great stuff!

Clunky
by SG NY on 2017/05/28 00:34
The official transit app for Paris, with real-time subway, bus, and tram times for defined routes or spots nearby on a map. Great source of info but clunky interface with lots of options that can't be turned off (car and bike share stations for example) or that require too much scrolling (a prompt for routes and default stations sit on top of list of available transport even if irrelevant to a selected map area). The app Transit is much more intuitive and informative but the RATP agency will not allow it to license actual real time GPS info. So the RATP app may be more accurate if looking primarily for a way to figure out when the next train or bus will come, but it is still not that user friendly.
Best Paris transport app
by Hhuntington2 on 2017/05/27 08:10
So I found this incredibly useful for writing the buses. And I found the buses to be way more useful and pleasant than the metro. This app looks at your location and find the best route for you. You can even deselect options such as the train if you only want to take the bus. I found the bus to be much more useful, less crowded, with more options. This app made finding those options a snap. This is a must have app for Paris.
Manually choose English
by Asshskcnd on 2017/05/17 19:49
Love this app so much but it would be really helpful if there was a settings option to put the app into English as my phone is in French but I'm not fluent 😁

by Robert the Red on 2015/09/17 08:32
On my recent trip to Paris, this app was very useful. The Metro is pretty easy, but the RATP app is nearly essential for finding bus routes. And it works for address to address rout finding -- helps with the walking parts as well, showing a Google map.

Advertising, really?
by neverclockwise on 2015/02/18 11:33
Every time I open the app, an ad pops up. RATP makes money selling metro tickets, and it makes no sense for this app to be ad-supported. The app is already wonky as it is without this extra nuisance. The one star is for pissing out of the bucket.

Bug in emailing search result
by bcpaulos on 2014/07/11 21:29
This app offers the ability to send the results of a route search to your email. Nice idea. Except it doesn't actually work. There is no "send" button, nor a "cancel" button, so it makes a cul de sac. When the problem gets fixed it should instead offer to save the search offline, within the app, including the map graphic.
Very useful
by ourblueface on 2014/06/22 06:05
Nice app. Can't understand why one who takes the time to learn how to use it would not find it useful. It gives precise instructions on times and walking involved for various modes of transport depending on departure date and time, with options of faster modes, amount of walking, and departure times. It could be improved by allowing one to mail a map and not just a verbal summary. Also, it took me a moment to discover that I needed to tap twice to send the mail. Why no send button?

Great resource for touring Paris

Highly recommend this app for visitors to Paris who want to do a lot of touring around. It allows you to find out how to get between locations in the city using both Metro and the extensive bus services, which can give you a real view of the city, and many more options for stops than with just the Metro.

En plus de l'ergonomie au maximum moyenne, elle a besoin d'une connexion internet pour fonctionner... comme si les plans des lignes changerait tous les heures. Pour exactement les mêmes informations regardez plutôt l'app Vianavigo qui elle fonctionne off line.
Great app
by Jimenezdilone on 2014/03/08 22:04
As long as you can read a map and are good with directions this is a great app to have if your are traveling to paris in train. Also I suggest you get the weekly passes for zones 1-5 they are a life saver and can be used with busses and trains in those zones

Essential for visitors to Paris!
by Soccer Coach on 2013/08/19 09:46
Great app for traveling around Paris. You put in the desired location, and your current location (if you don't know, let the GPS enter it), and the time you want to leave. RATP will tell you connecting information and by using the NEXT button, you can see the suggestions for what to do if you missed the connection. RATP works in English and French. We use this App to get to Versailles and to the CDG airport.
Idea is good, but not well executed
by Davidzfr on 2013/07/16 15:55
One thing I don't like about other Transport APP is that I have to pick a station as my starting point or destination, but this app allows you to choose a specific address as your departing point and destination. This is very practical, especially when it also includes the Bus system. For example, I'm close to two different stations of two different lines, with this app, it will tell you which stain is more practical to get to your destination while other normal app needs you to choose in the first place a station to show you how to get to your destination. However, this app is badly designed, it's buggy, laggy, not like an iOS app, not to mention a good one. Hope the dev team will improve the app and it will become more and more fluent and responsive.
Broken bus times update
by timoelliott on 2012/12/18 07:22
Great app, except from some interface niggles - but atest version broke my bus bookmarks, won't let me create new ones, and real-time bus times are different between the app and the shelters (latter is correct)
Useful app for visiting Paris and taking Metro, bus, or RER
by studioglyphic on 2012/07/31 15:23
After encountering endless stairways on the Metro while lugging around the child, stroller, etc., we decided to try our luck with the buses. Couldn't have done it without this official app from RATP. Note that the app does require a data connection in order to download individual route maps or schedule travel, so sign up for International roaming with your carrier, or get a SIM for your unlocked device. Even without a data plan, you can probably preload some of the route maps at a wifi hotspot and refer to them later. The system maps seemed to work without a data connection. Also, while the screenshots in the App Store are in French, the app does recognize your device's language setting and will work in English.
Super pratique!
by 1584st on 2012/07/24 04:38
Une application complète et vraiment pratique! Ça va m'éviter de faire la touriste avec mon mini-plan et pouvoir planifier mon trajet en temps réel. Franchement, bravo RATP! Vive la technologie! :)
great app for a visit to paris
by Gradstudentnyc on 2012/07/16 02:30
couldn't have gotten around without it. easy to use.
Application digne du communisme!
by Samsoumitunes on 2012/07/12 03:04
Ah la France!! Jamais une application gratuite du gouvernement ne pourra égaler celle d'une companie prifessionnelle... Et pourtant elle tourne! La présidence. Verdict catégorique: à refaire!
really helpful
by slight300 on 2012/07/04 16:25
excellent app, easy to navigate. would be nice if there were complete schedules
Useful !
by Clems00 on 2012/05/14 11:57
Great app to go around Paris
Perfect for anyone getting around in Paris
by Svetlushka on 2021/01/06 13:07
Has all public transportation options. You can also compare time it will take to get to your destination if you walk, drive, bike or scoot. Map of the lines is included as well.

Best Paris transport app
by Hhuntington2 on 2017/05/27 08:10
So I found this incredibly useful for writing the buses. And I found the buses to be way more useful and pleasant than the metro. This app looks at your location and find the best route for you. You can even deselect options such as the train if you only want to take the bus. I found the bus to be much more useful, less crowded, with more options. This app made finding those options a snap. This is a must have app for Paris.

Clunky
by SG NY on 2017/05/28 00:34
The official transit app for Paris, with real-time subway, bus, and tram times for defined routes or spots nearby on a map. Great source of info but clunky interface with lots of options that can't be turned off (car and bike share stations for example) or that require too much scrolling (a prompt for routes and default stations sit on top of list of available transport even if irrelevant to a selected map area). The app Transit is much more intuitive and informative but the RATP agency will not allow it to license actual real time GPS info. So the RATP app may be more accurate if looking primarily for a way to figure out when the next train or bus will come, but it is still not that user friendly.
Very useful
by ourblueface on 2014/06/22 06:05
Nice app. Can't understand why one who takes the time to learn how to use it would not find it useful. It gives precise instructions on times and walking involved for various modes of transport depending on departure date and time, with options of faster modes, amount of walking, and departure times. It could be improved by allowing one to mail a map and not just a verbal summary. Also, it took me a moment to discover that I needed to tap twice to send the mail. Why no send button?

Awesome app makes Metro easy in Paris!
by PleaseJustTheFacts on 2017/09/22 13:33
Love this app. I never need to find a map any more to get around Paris quickly and easily. I like the ability to pick "fastest" or "least walking," and the ability to review a few choices. Great stuff!
Great resource for touring Paris
by ricburwal on 2014/05/24 18:27
Highly recommend this app for visitors to Paris who want to do a lot of touring around. It allows you to find out how to get between locations in the city using both Metro and the extensive bus services, which can give you a real view of the city, and many more options for stops than with just the Metro.
Worked great for me
by Robert the Red on 2015/09/17 08:32
On my recent trip to Paris, this app was very useful. The Metro is pretty easy, but the RATP app is nearly essential for finding bus routes. And it works for address to address rout finding -- helps with the walking parts as well, showing a Google map.
Great app
by Jimenezdilone on 2014/03/08 22:04
As long as you can read a map and are good with directions this is a great app to have if your are traveling to paris in train. Also I suggest you get the weekly passes for zones 1-5 they are a life saver and can be used with busses and trains in those zones
Bug in emailing search result
by bcpaulos on 2014/07/11 21:29
This app offers the ability to send the results of a route search to your email. Nice idea. Except it doesn't actually work. There is no "send" button, nor a "cancel" button, so it makes a cul de sac. When the problem gets fixed it should instead offer to save the search offline, within the app, including the map graphic.
Great asset for Paris visitors
by memassachusetts on 2020/02/05 09:36
I don’t know what I’d do without this app. It is especially useful at nights when waits can be long. Also during the metro strike frequently work-arounds were necessary. The app really helped.
Manually choose English
by Asshskcnd on 2017/05/17 19:49
Love this app so much but it would be really helpful if there was a settings option to put the app into English as my phone is in French but I'm not fluent 😁
Useful with offline mode
by berowie on 2013/12/10 16:24
Very nice guide to the Metro and trains. Be sure to launch and download the street map before you go. Searchable routes work well and let you choose quickest or fewest transfers.
Works great.
by H Khan Tx on 2017/08/07 19:56
I am pleased with the app. It gave me accurate info on getting around using Paris metro, better than using google maps
A disaster!
by Yaskl on 2015/10/03 19:24
This app is terrible. I had to use it for the buses as google maps doesn't seem to have access to this information anymore. The bus schedule is not accurate, the walking directions between stops are total non-sense, the addresses are not recognized when you type them. I wish google maps would presents the buses and trams.
Absolutely awful & convoluted
by Tavallai on 2014/06/15 14:02
It's as of the folks at RATP - or their media agency - decided to put the user last. This app is the very ANTITHESIS of a good transit application. A transit user wants to know how to get where they're going in as little time as possible. This latest version if the RATP app throws so many stumbling blocks in the way if actually finding useful info that it renders itself completely useless.
Must have
by 99))(( on 2018/09/30 15:00
If you’re going to ride the bus, you must have thus app. It’s not always right due to constant construction in Paris, but it’s pretty close.
Practical tool
by NerfB on 2017/01/04 11:17
Great way to determine the fastest route between two points in Paris. Provides times and connections. Much better than winging it on the metro every time as bus routes included!
Don't go to France without this app!
by Guzman62 on 2017/07/19 01:05
Spent a week in Paris and this app was a huge help! Great for navigating public system in Paris. You will not be disappointed.
yet another Horrible update
by Brod222222 on 2014/11/13 11:08
finally when I was used to using the application again, you change it yet again. What you have done to the homepage now is criminal and completely unusable. with every attempt at updating the application, you make it worse and worse
Ok
by figliodepapa on 2014/04/12 18:00
I don't seem to see anything new. Bothering thing ---- It erased all the itineraries I had previously saved. Extremely bother thing #2 They could have made the exits of the stations more easy to identify. But they are there. A lot of changes to the interface, but why? Where exactly is the improvement? I'm not having the same problems the other reviewers seem to be having. Working, it's working. It's just seems more untidy than it was before.
Good App
by Drift240sx on 2014/02/19 00:09
A great app with all of the information you need. Allow the option to be used offline. I'd imagine a lot of people who don't have service while visiting Paris would like to be able to use the app.
Necessary app in Paris
by Youki2 on 2017/08/28 09:25
Works just fine to take advantage of the best public transportation system of a big capital.
Good as hell
by LuvTheLake420 on 2018/02/13 00:04
This app is ESSENTIAL to navigating Paris as a tourist. If it can get a drunk American home at 1 a.m. in a snowstorm, anyone can use it.
Frustrating and useless!
by Mila000007 on 2014/04/16 17:57
It wasn't able to produce one single itinerary, not one. It could be a great app if only one thing would work. One day it won't open, the next it will just charge forever and the next it won't find any address. Bring back the old ratp please!
Very good Paris metro app
by DrScreenplay on 2013/12/14 12:41
Worked great helping us get around. Would be better if directions could be used offline though.
Horrible! It deleted everything!
by Mongolianmonkey on 2014/04/08 08:02
This app now isn't even worth one star. I don't know where these people have their heads, but it seems to be a place where the sun don't shine. This was a wonderful app that I used several times each day in order to catch the bus in Paris, where I live. But now, everything is gone. There's nothing but a blank screen. Even if they brought back the old app, as they should, all my lines and bus stops would still be deleted and I would have to start from scratch. C'est vraiment dégoûtant ce qu'ils ont fait. Dégueulasse! Je vous maudit, la RATP !
Crash, crash, crash
by Phutcher1243 on 2014/04/09 21:00
Wow.. It won't even start up. I've killed the app now twice and each time it just crashes and dumps me back to the home screen. If the RATP shared their data openly someone could make a real app for everyone to use. Seriously, please fix this app so I can use it.
So annoying
by Djdoucement on 2019/09/05 12:56
Difficult to navigate and incredibly annoying. All I want is find a route, I don’t want to enter my “home” address and I don’t want to create nicknames for every place I go. This is an aggravating and unpleasant update to this app.
Widget ?
by Blanog on 2019/07/26 13:41
Thanks for updating, the app already works a lot better ! Still waiting for the widget to come back though... !
Really bad update 👎
by Thanh-Nhon Nguyen on 2019/07/11 15:30
I am so annoyed by this new update that I make my very first review on Appstore. Been happy using this app for years without any trouble but this version has lost it all. You can no more see how many time you have to wait for the next train/tram/bus around you. You can no more see the list of stations of a line. You can no more feel comfortable figuring out how the app works. Please consider an other update.
Paris metro/ RER

Great app. Even works without wifi access. It's a must app if you are visiting Paris.
Crashes

Car commercials on a public transport app!
by Martin's opinion on 2016/03/25 16:33
Also they use a dated map. Additionally, when you enlarge the map, it turns black -- horrible. There is a much better alternative by the supervising company (STIF) - an app called "Vianavigo"

I don’t like this update because i can’t see my bus or rer schedule like on old update. Please kill this update and go back to previous version !
Couldn't find a single itinerary
by Dll4 on 2014/04/08 16:26
Failed to produce a single itinerary! Tried multiple stations, and always failed to return anything.
Strike and strike again
by Tdw😀 on 2019/12/16 04:22
We don’t understand why they strike and RATP (public service) just blocks Paris because they want to keep privilèges other don’t have 🤮

It won't open! And I really hope I won't lose my info
