Ticket T+

How long is the t+ ticket valid?

  • Once validated, the t+ ticket allows you to make as many transfers as you want on the metro and RER networks for 2 hours (after the first validation), and for 90 minutes on the bus and tram networks (between the first and last validation).
  • Each time you change buses or trams, you must again validate your t+ ticket.

My t+ ticket did not work when I tried to use it, even though it has never been used before. What should I do?

Your ticket may have become demagnetised over time. In this case, contact a station agent to exchange your t+ ticket.

I have unused tickets. Can I have them refunded?

Public transport regulations for the Ile-de-France region do not provide for the reimbursement of unused or partially used transportation tickets (purchased individually or in packages of 10).

Tickets purchased individually or in packages of 10 are permanently valid for single use and are issued without an expiration date. Consequently, they can always be used at a later date.

Navigo travel passes (monthly and weekly) and Solidarity transport passes are the only ones that can be refunded, under certain conditions. Travel passes can be fully refunded (100%) if they are cancelled before the period of validity begins. Travel passes can be partially refunded (50%) if they are cancelled within the first 2 days for weekly travel passes, and within the first 10 days for monthly travel passes, due to illness, job loss, or a change of work place. In this case, a medical certificate or letter from the employer must be included with the request for reimbursement.

This information is indicated in the Passenger User Guide displayed in all RATP stations.

How many zones does my ticket cover?

In the Ile-de-France region, zones no longer apply for t+ tickets. Your ticket is valid for a single one-way trip.

Is it possible to transfer using my t+ ticket?

Yes. Following the first validation of your t+ ticket, you may transfer between the following means of transport anywhere in the Ile-de-France region for a period of 90 minutes:

- Bus – Bus,
- Tram – Tram.

What do I do if my t+ ticket is lost or stolen?

Lost or stolen t+ tickets cannot be replaced or refunded.

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

You must always validate your t+ ticket when you board a bus or tram. Once validated, your t+ ticket allows you to make as many transfers as you want to other bus and tramway lines for 90 minutes (between the first and last validation). Each time you change buses or trams, you must validate your t+ ticket again.

Examples of trips for which only one t+ ticket is necessary:
You take line 62 and then transfer to line 64; you take line 64 and then transfer to tramway T3; you take tramway T3 and then transfer to T2.

Note: the same t+ ticket cannot be used for round-trip travel on the same bus line, or for two trips in the same direction on the same bus line (i.e. you get off a bus and later take another bus on the same bus line).

How do I use a t+ ticket in the metro and RER networks in Paris?

In the metro, your t+ ticket allows you to travel on the entire network.

In the RER, your t+ ticket allows you to travel only within Paris. Any travel outside of Paris requires the purchase of a point-to-point ticket (Île-de-France ticket), the price of which is calculated on a station-to-station basis.

For example, to go from Paris to La Défense - Grande Arche by RER A, you must have a valid point-to-point ticket for this station.

It is however possible to reach this destination by metro (M1), using a t+ ticket. T+ tickets allow you to make metro/RER and RER/RER transfers within Paris. In this case, you must again validate the t+ ticket you used when you first entered the network.
