The station Bry-sur-Marne is an RER station in the Paris suburb Bry-sur-Marne (in the Val-de-Marne department).

The station

The station is named for the town in which it is located, in the eastern suburbs of Paris. It comprises two tracks - one going towards Paris, the other towards Marne-la-Vallée et Disneyland Paris. The station contains a help desk, an automated ticket vending machine, and a baker's shop. The tracks are on an elevated level; lifts provide access for wheelchair users.

RER A

On the A line, Bry-sur-Marne is located on branch A4, leading to the Marne-la-Vallée station, and thus connecting Paris both to parts of the western suburbs and to Disneyland Paris (which is in fact well outside Paris).

As it is a fairly small town, Bry-sur-Marne is one station (along with neighbouring Neuilly-Plaisance) where trains do not systematically stop, in either direction.[1] Complaints by residents, requesting systematic stops at the station, have become something of a local issue, acknowledged by the mayor.[2]

Connecting transport

Though the station does not connect to any other train line, it is directly adjacent to a bus stop for bus lines 120 (linking the Nogent-sur-Marne RER station to the town hall of Noisy-le-Grand via Bry) and 210 (linking the RER station in Bry to the RER station in Torcy).[3]

The station is located on the very edge of Bry, close to the town of Noisy-le-Grand, thus making it also the closest available station for residents in parts of that town.
