Access & Transport

Published 18.12.09

A high-quality transport infrastructure

The number of French and International transport routes (motorways, railways, flight) which converge towards Paris make it one of the most accessible capitals in Europe.


Thanks to one of the most developed public transport systems in the world, Ile-de-France and Paris can guarantee an exceptional transport capacity throughout the duration of the 2010 World Championships, for participants and spectators alike. Access will be made easier for wheelchair users.


A special shuttle service, with full wheelchair facilities, completes the transport package and insures a link-up service between sites for those who are accredited: airports, train stations, accommodation areas, training facilities and the Grand Palais.
