Gare de Bercy
Paris Bercy station
|Location||48 Boulevard de Bercy
|Platforms||6 + car loading platforms|
Paris Bercy is a railway station and terminus in Paris, France, operated by the SNCF. It specialises in auto-trains, which transport travelers' vehicles, such as cars, motorbikes, scooters and so on, to another station which also specialises in auto-trains. Since July 2002, it has been the seventh largest station in Paris, after a renovation allowed it to accommodate the four daily sleeper trains between Paris and Italy. It is also the Paris terminus for medium-distance domestic services to Avallon via Laroche-Migennes, Sens, and Auxerre. The station acts as a relief to the nearby Paris-Gare de Lyon which was reaching capacity.
The station had been previously designed for sleeper trains, allowing passengers to travel with their car in the same train, which usually is not possible at any of the other Parisian terminal stations, as they have never been adapted for this purpose.
It is located in the Bercy area of the 12th arrondissement, close to the Bercy sports arena on the Boulevard de Bercy. It is also close to the Gare de Lyon. Access from the Paris Métro is by Line 6 or Line 14 to Bercy Métro station.
