To find a cab in Paris.

Taxis are recognisable by the taxi light on their tops, which are lit green when available and red when taken

(there are still taxis running with the older code of white when available and yellow when taken).

They can be hailed in the street (as long as you are not within 50 metres of a taxi stand), taken at taxi stands or reserved by telephone in advance. They are often hard to find on week-ends. Tarifs (2.60€ service charge, 7€ minimum charge) are amongst the lowest in Europe. This, added to the typically short distances covered, make

them a good option. Most taxis will only take 3 people at a time. When reserving a taxi by phone, be aware that you also pay for the time it takes for the taxi to get to you, which can bump up the cost.

From Av de Friedland a good spot is to take one on the top of av de wagram.  # 2 on my map.

Paris rental bike VELIB 

Paris is pretty small ( only 3 5km circumference around the péripherique, or ring road), so, weather permitting, one of

the most practical ways to get around is by bike, using the popular municipal 'Vélib' bike hire service for example, introduced

back in 2007. Bikes can be picked up from any of the 1500+ vélib stations around Paris, and then returned to a different station at destination, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Buy your tickets from the machines at Vélib stations; they cost 1. 70€ for a day or 8€ for a week but note that you need

to return it to a station every half hour or you will be fined 1 € for the 1 st half hour and 4€ for each half hour after that. Also, you'll need a bank card with a chip in it to use the service.

There are over 372km of cycle lanes in Paris and many main roads are closed to cars but opento bikes on Sundays

and public holidays: www.velib.paris.fr
