Catch The Montmartre Electric Bus (Montmartrobus)

Place des Abbesses, Montmartre, Paris
Place des Abbesses, Montmartre. The metro entrance “is one of only three original Guimard entrances left in Paris”

In case you are bewildered, standing with a map in your hand, using out of date instructions, looking for the electric Montmartrobus and only seeing the white tourist train, have no fear, photos and instructions are here.

At Place Pigalle you will see three major bus stops.

In the center waiting area, look for an emblem of Sacre-Coeur with a blue background. The other buses at this stop are 30 and 54. Take the Montmartre bus in the direction of Jules Joffrin (city hall of the 18th arrondissement).

Many travel options are available to enjoy the Montmartre area. For public transportation (RATP fares), use your regular metro/bus tickets (Ticket t+), your day pass/Mobilis, your Paris Visite card, you can buy a ticket on the bus or you can walk.

If you are in a hurry to get to Place des Abbesses, it will be your third stop.

Once the bus reaches the city hall in the 18th (Jules Joffrin), it takes a different route back to Pigalle.

This Web site and and its blog articles are for travelers to Paris who are looking for advice from someone who lives in Paris. These tips are "for Parisians at heart". Many people would like to visit, some can and some cannot - so I will help you enjoy a glimpse of the city and its surroundings. This project has been ongoing since 2002. Prior to living in Paris (since 1992) my European history began in the early 70s with three years in Wiesbaden, Germany. My next foray onto the Continent was in the mid-80s after graduation from the University of Florida (where I met Erik): traveling around Europe and UK with my friend, Margie, hitchhiking around and working in Ireland. After living and working as a journalist in Sweden for four years, traveling on boats, the Trans-Siberian Railway, local trains and planes took Erik and I around the world. I began working as a flight attendant in 1990 for American Airlines, based in Chicago. We moved to Paris, France in 1992 where I commuted between Paris and Chicago for my flight attendant/stewardess job. Finally my inner voice said "Stop!" and I left American Airlines six weeks shy of 20 years January 1, 2010. Now that is over and I am back working as a journalist and photographer full time on Colleensparis.com - My videos are posted on YouTube on the colleensparis youtube channel. and I am active in Toastmasters 75. Enjoy!
