Sena´s Batobus Schedules
What security measures does Batobus have in place?
On November 17, Batobus partnered with the local authorities to implement a special security plan. Security measures were stepped up and the police presence in the Champ de Mars/Trocadéro tourist areas was tripled.
Extra security guards were also added at the site. Bags must be searched and jacket/coats opened at entry points.
With the exception of small backpacks, purses and computer bags, luggage with a volume over 0.5 cubic feet is no longer allowed on our premises.
Naturally, we are coordinating our efforts with the local authorities, so please understand that we are unable to divulge all the details of our plan.

Hours depend on the time of year:
