Paris RER-part 2

The Paris RER schedules times may vary from time to time, you have also a different schedule for the summer and winter, and for the week-end and public holidays, some Paris RER trains can function from monday to friday or monday to saturday, and have a special schedule for the week-end.

The traffic can start as early as 4:40am for some lines and end up at 1:30am, after this hour a night transportation is available (noctilien).

The Paris RER unlike the Paris metro has the particularity to join Paris with its distant suburb. You can go to Disneyland or the Charles de Gaulle airport, with the corresponding fare.

Tariff of the Paris RER
You have 5 zones for the rer, you can use the ticket t+ only on the zone 1 of Paris.
You can use the pass origin-destination (billet ''Ile-de-France'') or another ticket that allows you to go to the desired zone.
With the pass origin-destination, the fare doesn't depend on the departure and arrival zone. It's a variable fare in this case.

Some example:
Paris- Les Invalides=1.70€
Paris- Mantes la jolie= 7.7€
Paris- Charles de Gaulle airport= 8.7€
Cergy- Charles de Gaulle airport= 14.15€
You can buy also a booklet of 10 tickets, then you will save 20%.

You can buy a mobilis, a Paris visit pass or the '' forfait navigo'' for 1 week.

Where can I buy a ticket?
You can buy tickets at ticket booths, automatic ticket machines, at metro, bus, tramway, Paris RER stations or business partners.
