Is there Uber in Paris? First time in Paris coming up in May...only there 3 days so wondering if this would be easiest way to get to/from airport, across the city vs. trying to figure out the Metro.
Does the Metro run 24/7? Not that I will be partying that late every night lol though if I'm out to let's say 1-2 in the morning, would I still be ok to catch the Metro? Thanks.
The Metro runs until about 1 am. RATP needs to have some time each day without trains running, to allow for routine maintenance.
We recently used Uber in Paris. It's great if you're tired and not near a taxi stand. They picked us up at out apartment on a very small street and took us about a mile for 5 euros. I thought it would be impossible from the Eiffel Tower, but we easily found the car. It was convenient, fast, and since you give the address you're going to on the app, there's no language problem. My only warning is going from the Marais to Charles DeGaulle airport, we were charged surge prices (80 euros), and a taxi is only 50, but it was too late to order one!Edited: 8:41 am, April 01, 2016
I've had good experiences with Uber in Paris. I'm familiar with the city and I feel that taxis have taken me on a longer route than necessary a few times. I've had taxi drivers with bad body odor. And I don't like paying the arrival charges if we call for a taxi pick up. If a taxi is nearby, I would take it, but Uber usually will arrive faster and you know he won't be taking the long route. And Uber gives you a record of the trip if you need to document or dispute the charge.
