Traffic regulations during the Paris 2024 Olympic Games: how to plan ahead ?

A century after the 1924 Games, Paris is gearing up to host the Olympic Games once again from July 26th to August 11th, 2024, followed for the first time by the Paralympic Games from August 28th to September 8th, 2024.

Where will the Olympic events take place in Paris ?

The competitions will take place at the heart of the city, in temporary venues close to the capital's most iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Grand Palais, the Concorde, and the Alexandre III Bridge.

The shared objective between the state services, the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic organizing committee, as well as the City of Paris, is to minimize as much as possible the impact of these zones on the daily lives of Parisians living near the competition venues, as well as on economic and social activities during the Games.

When will the Olympic sites be set up in Paris ?

Starting from March 2024, the organizers of the Olympic Games will begin setting up the Olympic sites. The installations, events, and dismantling will disrupt traffic in the city of Paris and its outskirts in certain areas.

These areas will result in access restrictions or detours for motorized vehicles. Traffic restrictions will not apply to pedestrians, cyclists, and scooter users within the red and blue zones.

You can find detailed information about the operation of each perimeter on the official website of the City of Paris here.

We invite you to take these details into account when planning your next trip to Paris.
