The rer C is the more sprawling rer line, it connects Pontoise,Versailles-Rive-Gauche, Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, Versailles Chantiers, Massy-Palaiseau, Dourdan-la Forêt and Saint-Martin-d'Étampes.
All the trains don't go by those terminus, and some never go by those terminus, they have their own terminus.

Each destination is related to a different name for the rer.

The rer C train serves all the Paris zone, with 16 stations in Paris (zone 1) from Porte de Clichy to Bibliothèque François Mitterand, as well as Javel and Pont-du-Garigliano. You can use your ticket t+ within this zone.

The frequency depends on the branch, destinations, days of the week, the hours of the day, off-peak hours or rush hours.

In rush hours, for the common journey, you can have train every 2-3 minutes, just to have an idea of the frequency, however it doesn't mean a lot because, the train may not to go on the desired location.
