How do I use the t+ ticket on the RER?

The t+ ticket allows you to travel on the RER within Paris only. For any journey outside Paris you must purchase an Origin-Destination ticket (Billet Origine-Destination), the price of which is calculated from station to station.

Thus, to travel to La Défense - Grande Arche from Paris using the RER A, you must be in possession of an origin-destination ticket valid for this station. However, it is also possible to travel there on the metro (line 1) using a t+ ticket.


Metro/RER and RER/RER connections within Paris are allowed. In this situation you should validate the original t+ ticket again.

How do I use the t+ ticket on buses and trams?

You should validate your t+ ticket each time you board a bus.

Once it has been validated your t+ ticket allows you to make unlimited connections within a 90-minute period (between the first and last validation) on other bus and tram lines. You should validate your t+ ticket each time you change bus or tram.

Please note: one single t+ ticket may not be used for round-trip journeys on the same line or to get off and then back on a bus from the same line.

  • An example of journeys for which one single t+ ticket can be used:
  • you take line 62 followed by line 64
  • you take line 64 followed by the T3 tramway
  • you take the T3 tramway followed by the T2

 

Specific rules applicable to Noctilien
When travelling on Noctilien you must use 1 t+ ticket for the first 2 zones, plus an additional ticket for each pricing zone crossed. However, for suburb-to-suburb journeys crossing through Paris, the number of tickets used must be equal to the maximum number of zones crossed (without counting them twice).

Examples :

  • journey within zones 2-3: 1 t+ ticket
  • journey within zones 1-3: 2 t+ tickets
  • journey from Versailles (zone 4) to Roissy (zone 5) via Paris: 5 t+ tickets

Connections between Noctilien and other modes of transport are not possible using the same t+ ticket. A new t+ ticket must therefore be validated each time you change transport.

 

Specific rules applicable to lines with special fares (299, 350, 351)
On lines with special fares you must use 1 t+ ticket for every 5 sections. Exception: one single t+ ticket can be used for a journey that takes place entirely within the Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport zone.

 

Specific rule concerning the use of tickets sold on buses
If you board a bus without a valid ticket you must purchase one from the driver. This ticket will allow you to make one single journey without connection.

After-sales service

Your ticket does not seem to be working
On the metro or RER you can have your ticket checked at a ticket office or information counter. In the case of a faulty ticket a replacement will be provided free of charge. On buses, speak to the driver who will manually validate your ticket if it is faulty.

Your t+ ticket has been lost or stolen
Lost or stolen t+ tickets can be neither replaced nor reimbursed.

You want to have an unused t+ ticket or old (mauve or green coloured) t ticket refunded
T+ tickets (as well as the old mauve or green t tickets) cannot be returned. They remain valid for use, with no time limit. This means that you do not need to exchange your old mauve or green t tickets. However, if they do not seem to be working take them to a ticket office or information counter where they can be checked. If necessary you will be provided immediately with a free replacement.
