CHEAP PARIS TRAVEL

Paris has in­tro­duced a new travel ticket in an ef­fort to fight the pol­lu­tion prob­lem that con­tin­ues to af­fect the city. Priced at €3.80, the all-day ticket al­lows peo­ple to travel any­where in the Île-de-france re­gion us­ing the RER, métro and most bus ser­vices. It is hoped that the at­trac­tive ticket price will en­cour­age res­i­dents and vis­i­tors to make full use of pub­lic trans­port in­stead of the car. The of­fer will last un­til air pol­lu­tion drops to safe lev­els. ratp.fr
