Transport barometer: follow the evolution of passenger numbers in La Défense stations

The business recovery is progressing every day at Paris La Défense! To help you get to and from the business district safely and avoid peaks in public transport traffic, the Île-de-France Region, Paris La Défense, RATP and SNCF have set up a barometer to measure the number of passengers using La Défense stations. Any alternatives? The district has also developed cycle paths, secure bicycle parking in car parks and created special fares in the car parks of Paris La Défense.

Public transport: choosing the right timetables!

The Île-de-France Region and Paris La Défense have set up this barometer in partnership with RATP and SNCF. It shows the hour-by-hour attendance at La Défense stations and gives you an indication of ridership trends.
The graphs show the average number of passengers arriving at and departing from La Défense stations during the week of July 20th, in green, compared to the situation last week, July 13th, in blue, and to the average reference situation, in grey.
Passenger flows increase slightly (+ 6% compared to the previous week).
Smoothing of arrival and departure times should be the rule. Adapt your timetables and those of your employees to avoid peaks in transport traffic, giving priority to arriving later in the morning and departing earlier or later in the afternoon.

Coming by bike

All these measures are in line with the Charter of reciprocal commitments for the smoothing of peak hours. Fourteen companies in the area have thus committed to promoting other work organisations and encouraging a modal shift towards cycling in particular.
