Sale of single paper Paris Metro tickets like the one pictured below will continue until the end of 2025 when sales are scheduled to stop. Discounted packs of 10 Paris Metro tickets are no longer sold in paper form as of 2023. These 10-pack Paris Metro tickets are now only sold on Navigo Easy cards or Paris transit apps.)
