Rosa-Parks is a railway station in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, France near the Porte d'Aubervilliers. It opened on December 13, 2015.[1] It bears the name of American civil rights activist Rosa Parks.[2][3]


The station, initially named Évangile because of its proximity to Rue de l'Évangile, is located on the site of the former Est-Ceinture[4][5] and Évangile stations,[6][7] both part of the Parisian circular line "Petite Ceinture".

After the demolition of Évangile station (2011), the following year a new tram stop opened on the Line 3b, and in 2015 the RER station opened.

Explaining the station's name, Annick Lepetit, deputy of Bertrand Delanoë (Mayor of Paris from 2001 to 2014) in charge of transport, stated: "We wanted at least 50% female names. There has been much debate, especially with RATP, which favors existing place names, but for Rosa Parks there was a consensus: this is necessary for a tram station, it is a strong symbol".[8]


The station, located on the Paris-Est–Strasbourg-Ville and Paris-Est–Mulhouse-Ville railways, both departing from Paris-Est, is served by the suburban line RER E. Île-de-France tramway Line 3b opened on 15 December 2012 with a stop located near the station.
