dotJS 2019 transport plan

As it happens in France, a national transport strike (including the Paris subway) is starting on December 5.
But don't worry, we have a plan! Here is what you need to know to be in time for both days:

  • We are running a dedicated bus service from Paris to the venue and back! Everyone was able to choose from 9 pickup points until December 2nd.
  • We have dedicated staff to assist you via email ([email protected]) and Twitter: @dotJS_transport
  • We have postponed the starting time of the first talks from 10:30am to 10:45am.
  • For people not living in Paris, we have listed all transport options below.

Dedicated bus service

Most subway lines will be stopped on December 5 & 6 so we have created a network of buses to get you to the conference and bring you back in the evening, on both days.

Be warned: the buses will depart the locations at the exact times below and won't be able to wait for latecomers. Please plan enough margin to be at the bus stop in time.

In the evening, the buses will depart 15 minutes after the last talk (around 6:45pm) to get you back to the same pickup point.


These buses are free of charge for all dotJS ticket holders. However, they must have been reserved before December 2nd from your ticket page.

🚨If you did not book any bus: you can still show up at a pickup point but we can't guarantee there will be a free seat for you in a bus. Instead, we highly recommend getting yourself to Porte de la Chapelle and boarding our continuous shuttle bus to the venue.
