Getting to the Petit Palais Paris by public transport
None of the Metro/RER stations near Le Petit Palais are wheelchair accessible.
A number of Paris bus lines serve Le Petit Palais (see the official RATP Bus Map for details):
The closest bus stop is the "Grand Palais" bus stop (Line 93) - the buses pass directly in front of Le Petit Palais too.
Also very close, is a different "Grand Palais" bus stop (Bus Line 72), which is also a wheelchair accessible bus stop.
Buses on lines 42, 73 and 93 stop VERY slightly further away at "Champs-Élysées - Clemenceau" bus stop on the Champs-Élysées. Again, the bus stop hjere is wheelchair accessible.
All 4,500 buses in Paris have an automatic/retractable wheelchair ramp (controlled by the bus driver).
CAUTION: Although all 4,500 buses in Paris are indeed wheelchair accessible, not all of the bus stops are. However, all bus stops mentioned above, ARE wheelchair accessible.
Wheelchair Accessible Taxis in Paris?
G7 are one of the biggest taxi companies in France, and have over 200 wheelchair accessible taxis in Paris.
They have a dedicated telephone number for their “G7 Access” service: +33(0)1 47 39 00 91. Your hotel reception will be only too happy to call them from your hotel – or you can order a taxi on their website (at http://www.g7.fr), or via their free app.
My recommendation though:
Le Petit Palais is just one stop on the Paris DIY Walking Tour route (which also includes the Arc de Triomphe, Place du Trocadéro, Palais de Chaillot, Eiffel Tower, École Militaire, Musée Rodin, Pont Alexandre III, Grand Palais, Jardin des Champs-Élysées, Place de la Concorde, Jardin des Tuileries, Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and the Louvre Museum.
As this walk includes most of the “must see” Paris attractions, it’s rather a long walk (just over 8km – about 5 miles). So you may want to do it in two stages? Breaking your journey at the very nearby Musée Rodin would be my recommendation (as there’s a wonderful outdoor café there – and the garden is so peaceful that you will find it hard to believe that you’re still actually sitting in the centre of Paris).
