First, GREAT Info, really clear and easy to understand (I think) I am in Paris for 2 weeks. Using your info I think I have a plan to combine a Jour Pass along with 2 x 1week Decouverte Pass
Am arriving on a Saturday(hopefully strike over??) Use the Jour pass to get to my hotel
- Navigo Jour Pass Zone 1-5 for 17.80euro. Travel from CDG via RER B to Chatelet les Halles, then Metro line 1 (yellow) to Chateau de Vincennes, then Bus 118 to Liberation (4stops) where my hotel is.
-for Sunday purchase individual t tickets from bus driver(118) for hotel to Chateau de Vincennes return. Cost 2x1.9euros
-Monday begin using Decouverte Pass for the next two weeks. Costs 5euro card plus 2x 22.80euros.
A little complicated but I think doable and cost effective.
Would not be able to figure this out without your info...Big Thanks
You've done well in digesting the information available and chosen wisely. I'd recommend exactly what you've said.
Just a quick note about bus tickets purchased on buses, they're 2€ and don't allow transfers to other buses whereas if you buy ticket t+ from Metro/RER ticket vending machines, ticket windows / offices, it'll be 1.90€ and allows transfers from bus to bus (not bus to Metro though, this is never possible with single-use Metro or bus tickets). And since the tickets never expire you can buy ahead of time (such as when you buy your Navigo Jour day pass upon arrival).
