3 – Paris Métro Tip 5

During rush hour, you should not use the foldable seats that are located by the subway doors. These are fine to use when there is plenty of space, but you should stand when there are plenty of people.

Otherwise, don’t hesitate to offer your seat to an elderly person or a pregnant woman, or someone traveling with a baby… You can say with a smile: “vous voulez vous asseoir ?” This kind gesture will show that you master French politeness and you’ll notice plenty of appreciative glances all around you! Good tourist points!
