Paris RER

The Réseau Express Régional (RER) has 5 lines that connect central Paris to the city suburbs, including notable destinations such as Charles de Gaulle airport, Disneyland Paris and Versailles. The RER is also a great option for getting around the city centre as it operates like an express subway train (like the Paris metro, but with fewer stops). If you’re travelling solely within central Paris Zone 1, you can use a Paris Metro ticket. If you’re travelling beyond Zone 1, you’ll need to purchase a Billet Ile-de-France. Children under 4 travel free on the RER.
