I'll be in Paris for about a day and half with the BOE tour. I doubt we'll be given any sort of Metro pass, but I imagine our guide will hand out carnet tickets. On the one full day, I plan to go from the 7th arr. (Mo: Ecole Militaire) to either the Cimitiere des Chiens (Mo: Mairie de Clichy) or the St. Denis Basilica (Mo: Basilique de St-Denis). The Metro map on RATP's site makes it look like those two Metro stations are in another zone (i.e., not central Paris), but it's hard to tell because the color gradation is so slight. So my question is: Can I go from the 7th to either of those two Metro stations on a ticket from a carnet, or do I need some other special pass?
Nope....all rides on the Metro cost the same price. It's the RER (the regional commuter trains) where the zones come into effect, and extra charges are levied.
Both of those metro stations are in zone 2. A single t+ ticket from a carnet is good anywhere the metro goes (some lines end in zone 3) and on the RER in zone 1.
Awesome! Thanks, Norm and Tim.
