Transilien Line J

Paris – Saint-Lazare

Vernon • Mantes la Jolie • Gisors • Ermont – Eaubonne

Departing from Gare Saint-Lazare, the J line of the Transilien connects the stations of Ermont - Eaubonne, Pontoise, and Mantes-la-Jolie in Île-de-France, then Vernon - Giverny in Oise and Gisors in Eure. At Mantes-la-Jolie, you can take the TER Normandie to Évreux.

The first opening of the J line dates back to 1837, with the opening of the first section Saint-Lazare - Asnières. The J line is therefore historic, as it is one of the first passenger lines in the country and the first in Île-de-France, only 10 years after the inauguration of the first railway in France. In 2004, during the restructuring of the Transilien network by SNCF, the J line was created as we know it today.

On the journey, you will have connections with the H, L, and N lines, RER A and C. Lines 3, 12, 13, and 14 of the metro, RER E, and Transilien L are connected at Gare Saint-Lazare.

The J line serves 56 stations and therefore allows residents of 75 municipalities to have access to public transport to reach central Paris. Not all stations are accessible to wheelchair users, but many facilities are gradually being created to allow everyone to access public transport, regardless of their situation.

Did you know? Between the stations of Argenteuil and Ermont - Eaubonne, the J line follows the former route of the RER C.

Getting around Île-de-France with the Transilien J line

The Transilien J line connects Paris to the northwest of Île-de-France and the departments of Eure and Oise. The railway line is divided into several sections to serve the entire area through the Paris suburbs, the Vexin Regional Park, and along the Seine.

Gare Saint-Lazare provides numerous connections, particularly with the metro and buses that allow you to reach the entire capital, as well as with the RER and Transilien lines that provide access to the Île-de-France region. The station is also an important starting point for TER trains that allow you to reach Normandy. Around the station, you can access the famous Boulevard Haussmann, the Palais Garnier, numerous theaters, and the Museum of Romantic Life.

On the route traced by the Transilien J line, many cities pass by. Many of them offer beautiful landscapes along the Seine or in the forest to enjoy nature. These open spaces also offer the possibility of visiting amusement parks, accessible for example from the Clairières de Verneuil station or the Issou - Porcheville station.

The Transilien J line therefore connects Paris to natural areas offering dozens of activities: in Yvelines, the Etang du Bout du Monde and the Square des Dolmens d'Epône are accessible from the Aubergenville - Élisabethville station, Lake Gassicourt is near the Mantes-la-Jolie station, and the Dolmen des Trois Pierres is about a twenty-minute walk from the Trie-Château station.

If you are looking for green spaces close to Paris, choose the Sannois station, which overlooks the Butte d'Orgemont park, or the Asnières-sur-Seine station, which provides access to the Impressionist Park in Clichy. Are you looking for a sporting outing? These two stations are also located near aquatic centers, and, further away, the Stade station takes you directly to the closest point to the Yves-du-Manoir Olympic Stadium. Many historical buildings line the Transilien J line. To see the castles in the region, you can stop at the Maisons Laffite, Les Mureaux, Gisors, or Vaux-sur-Seine stations.

The journey on the J line through French heritage does not stop there, as it serves several stations that provide access to various museums. This is the case for the stations of:

  • Villennes-sur-Seine, where you can find the Maison d'Emile Zola and the Dreyfus Museum,
  • Poissy, with the Maison de Fer and the Toy Museum,
  • Vernon - Giverny, which provides access to the Vieux Moulin and the Vernon Museum,
  • Argenteuil, a two-minute walk from the Impressionist House of Claude Monet.

These are therefore hundreds of places, natural spaces, and historical buildings accessible directly from the Transilien J line, and even more with all its possible connections!
