I'm going to Paris with my wife and my 3 yo daughter. We plan to buy a convertible bicycle/ stroller trailer.

Is it OK to ride the Metro while taking your kid along in a trailer like this?

Everything is possible. Strollers are allowed in the metro.

But I would advise against it because there are too many stairs in the Paris metro that could make your rides far from enjoyable.

If you read french, here is a blog post on the difficulties of a young mother with a stroller: R.A.T.P : Rame Avec Ta Poussette ! The article is relatively old, but situation has not evolved since.

I can take the stroller while my daughter goes down the stairs. But we won't be kicked out of the metro for traveling with that giant stroller? – Alvaro Rodriguez Jun 9 '13 at 13:53
I've seen a lot of them in the metro and I always help to carry them up the stairs. – greg121 Jun 10 '13 at 4:46
