The ticket t+ can be used for transfers, made within 1 hour 30 minutes of first use, only between certain methods of transport and depending on the type of transport used. You cannot mix and match the transfers listed below, each bullet point should be regarded as separate transfer type. For example, you cannot transfer from Metro to Bus. Ticket t transfers are allowed between:

  • Metro lines, without exiting the confines of a station, or
  • Metro and RER lines, or
  • 2 RATP Bus lines, or
  • 1 RATP Bus and 1 Optile bus, or
  • Tramway and any bus lines that cross it, or
  • Noctilien buses (except on Noctilien buses requiring special fares)

Notice that there are no “and”s in the above list. That’s on purpose. You can’t mix any of the above transfer situations.

Special note: single tickets purchased on buses, directly from drivers are not valid for transfers.

With these tickets you will not be able to transfer to another bus nor tramway.
