Are Paris buses reliable?

They are clean, and usually well maintained. They get crowded from 5 pm till 8 pm as most Parisians use the public transportation system. Bus speed is dependent upon trafic conditions. On certain lines, you can expect a bus every 5-10 minutes. On less frequented lines, expect a 15-20 minute wait between 2 buses. Bus stops are everywhere, and bus maps show you which lines to take to your destination (though they are often unclear).
