Metro Line 3bis


Porte des Lilas

Created in 1971, line 3bis is actually a section of line 3 of the metro, extended the same year from Gambetta to Gallieni. One can also think of the song by Serge Gainsbourg that tells us that before 1971, passengers could travel from Porte des Lilas to Levallois-Perret without any transfers.

The starting station Porte des Lilas connects to another famous station: Gambetta. Between the starting point and the terminus, the metro stops at only two stations: Saint-Fargeau and Pelleport.

Porte des Lilas is served by metro line 11 and tram line 3bis. As for the terminus station Gambetta, it serves metro line 3.

Did you know? Porte des Lilas is the only station, along with Porte de Clichy, to serve two separate metro lines. And until January 2021, the Porte des Lilas metro station was the only one located at one of the gates of the capital.
