The metro has 16 lines covering all of Paris. The lines are identified by a number, and the direction to travel is indicated by the end destination - for instance, if you travel westerly on line 1, then you're heading in direction 'La Defense'. There are multiple entrances to most metro stations, and inside the station there are street maps showing the local area to help you find the most convenient exit.

The bus network in Paris covers a wider range of areas than the metro system (particularly in the outer arrondissements),oakley sunglasses, and being above ground they are also more pleasant to use. However, the maps may be a bit confusing at first glance.
Each bus has a number, and the direction is simply a matter of standing on the appropriate side of the road. The buses stop only at the bus-stops, and you need to wave to stop a bus (although they often stop anyway just in case).
The buses use the same tickets as the metro system, and if using regular tickets they need to be inserted in the stamping machine on each bus. If you have a Carte Orange or Paris Visite ticket,lunettes carrera, do not stamp the ticket. Tickets have to be already purchased and cannot be bought on the bus.
The buses are fairly frequent - usually 15 minutes apart. Each bus shows the number on the front, back and sides,chanel bags outlet, with the sides also showing the major stops.
Inside the bus will be a map showing the route and each stop. However, there is usually no indication of which stop is being approached, so keep your eyes open and don't be afraid to ask which stop is next. It may be best to ask your neighbour rather than the driver though.
Official taxis are recognised by the white light on top of the car,lunettes carrera. The white light has three other lights underneath which show which tariff the taxi is running on - these are for the police to see when a taxi is overcharging it's client.

You can wave a taxi down from the street, unless you are within 50 meters of an official taxi rank.
