I didn't make that video. I got it off YouTube. However, I did do a lot of research on the bus system in Paris. My plan was to post a blog about the Paris bus system on Untours Cafe. However, you are short on time. So I will give you some quick tips. First of all, check out these two sites.
(1) This is an interactive map. You can enlarge it. If you click on any bus number on the map, the actual route will be highlighted. Then if you click on each symbol for that bus number, one will show every single bus stop on the route. Another will show the time intervals to expect arrival of the bus. I printed each of these for every single bus I thought we might use.
(2) This site is very good. It can be used for the buses or the metro. You type in the departure location and the destination. I usually picked a hypothetical week day along with the time I expected to leave. Then click "search." It will tell you what bus or Metro to take. Then you can click on the map symbol to the right of the departure or destination. A map will show up with the exact location of the bus stops. http://www.ratp.info/touristes/index.php?rub=reperer&cat=itineraires&page=itineraires&langue=en
This may be a little confusing at first. But it saves a lot of time. I printed all this for almost all the buses I thought we would use. When we wanted to go somewhere, I leafed through the highlighted bus routes to find one that was going where we wanted to. For those locations I knew we would be going, I used the # 2 link shown above.
The buses are extremely easy to use once you know how they work. Each bus stop has a bus stop map for the buses that stop there.
For link # 2, it will even show you the return route bus to take. Also, most of the bus stops have an LCD screen indicating how many minutes until your bus will arrive. Hopefully I will have something posted about the buses before you leave. But check these links out, and become familiar with them. We loved taking the buses.
