Paris Trains

How expensive are the trains in Paris? If I needed to go from Porte Maillot to Maisons -Laiffitte, would my best option be the Metro or from one of the stations?. Which stations would I use?. Thanks.

Take Metro line 1 to La Defense. Transfer to the RER A and take it to Maisons-Laffitte. Go to to download and print a Metro/RER map for central Paris and a RER map that shows service to outlying zones. Click on the British flag.

Did you see my answer to your previous post? Here it is again:

A single ticket on the RER from Maisons-Laffitte to central Paris costs €3.50 and includes transfers to other RER lines and/or Metro lines so long as you don't exit the system.

Are you familiar with the Carte Orange? It's a weekly (Monday-Sunday) pass that is good for unlimited rides on the Metro, RER, city buses, trams, and the Montmartre funicular. It's sold through Wednesday for the current week. No sales on Thursdays. If you buy it Friday-Sunday, it won't be good until the following Monday. Maisons-Laffitte is in zone 4. A zone 1-4 Carte Orange costs €26.70. It requires a passport-sized photo. Cutting out a headshot of yourself from an old photo is sufficient.
