Paris bus fares and tickets

A single journey costs €2,-- if you buy your ticket on the bus. However, you'll save money by using Métro tickets (now called T+ tickets), which are slightly cheaper and don't require dealing with the driver. (Just be sure to validate your ticket once you're on board.).

Paris Metro ticketImportant: T+ tickets allow transfers between buses and trams, but not between buses or trams and Métro or RER lines. Tickets sold by bus drivers (which are marked "sans correspondences") can be used only on surface transportation (i.e., buses and trams).

Which offers the best value, a carnet or Paris Visite? That's something you'll have to calculate for yourself, based on how frequently you'll use public transportation and where you plan to go in the Paris region.

Traveling with children:

Children under age 4 travel free on buses, trams, or the Métro Kids from ages 4-10 pay the full adult fare for single tickets, but a children's carnet of 10 tickets is half price, so it pays to plan ahead.
