- Difference between Metro and RER:
Metro = goes from one station to the following one.
RER = only linking some selected stations in Paris, so that it is much quicker to reach those stations. RER is also going to the suburbs & airports, and then is often called "Train".

- Free Maps from the Metro, Bus and RER are available in all the metro stations - ask at the welcome desk ("Accueil - Information"). Also see our maps below.

- Tickets: they are the same for the Metro, Bus and RER inside Paris. Buying 1 pack ("1 carnet") of ten tickets is less expensive (14,90 €) than separate tickets (1,90 € per unit), and their use is not limited in time (you can use them the following years). Information on tickets prices.

- Rules for a ticket lifetime:
You can use the same ticket for a trip with different busses during 1 h 30 (but you have to validate your ticket in the machine of each bus).
You can use the same ticket inside the Metro/RER during 2 hours (but you cannot go outside and enter again).
You cannot use the same ticket for both Metro/RER and bus during the same trip.
