Many people appreciate the speed and convenience of the Paris Metro, but we have found the busses to be a much more interesting way to get around Paris. The bus system is extensive, the busses are modern and comfortable, and you get to see a lot of the city, and better still, the Parisians who are your fellow passengers.
We love the Carte Orange, which allows you infinite travel with no hassles.
We also noticed that Parisians, who are generally very courteous, say "Bonjour" to the bus driver, and so do we.
There are often covered kiosks with benches at the bus stops, along with a map of the route. I like to take pictures while waiting for the bus, often of the bicycle riders who peddle past me.
