How do I get to the Stadium St Denis and Olympique aquatic center by public transportation, where are the parking lots?
RER D (line green): Stade de France,
RER B (line blue): La Plaine Stade de France,
metro 13 (line blue): Basilique Saint-Denis
Tip: it will be very difficult to get to the Stade de France by car (crowds, security zone where parking will be prohibited, etc.); think "public transportation" (RER, metro, tramway) instead. The latter will have adjusted schedules.

The hosting of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2024 corresponds to a real desire of the communities concerned. As a large-scale project, its success will naturally depend on the location of the sports facilities, but above all on the participation of all the stakeholders in the region. The Paris 2024 bid was built through an unprecedented consultation process, for which the French people were widely solicited through a participatory platform, which allowed all those who wished to participate in the thoughts of the bid committee. Environmental, social and economic issues were thus at the heart of the concerns.
Supported by an entire country, the Paris Olympic Games are a unique and spectacular project, heralding a unique celebration of sport and Olympism in Paris and the heart of Seine-Saint-Denis. It is also an exemplary and responsible project, which makes sense and will leave a strong and lasting legacy for all populations.
In Seine-Saint-Denis, the Comité Départemental Olympique et Sportif (CDOS 93) supports the sports associations of the department, contributes to the safeguarding and development of the values of Olympism as defined in the Olympic charter.
The actions of the CDOS 93 aim to fight against violence and doping in sport and to promote the values of fair play and ethics. The committee is an actor of the development of the sport practice in the department and it also contributes to the preservation and the valuation of the departmental sport heritage.
The Paris 2024 Olympic games organization committee (Cojo) moved into the "Pulse" office building in La Plaine district of Saint-Denis on Wednesday, January 20th, 2021.
