Transportation links[edit]

Tourism[edit]

Though it is not very tourist-oriented, the neighbourhood "Quatre routes" is very commercialized, featuring a large market which is open on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sunday mornings. To reach the nearby Parc départemental de La Courneuve, the largest green space in the département (approximately 4 km²), take the T1 to the station "Six routes". During the Fête de l'Humanité at the beginning of September, a shuttle takes people directly there from the terminus of the métro.

It is also possible to take the T1 towards Drancy in order to visit the deportation camp of the Cité de la Muette.

Bus 152 arrives at the station from the Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace (The Museum of Air and Space) at Le Bourget Airport, where a biennial aviation show is held.
