All full ECCMID 2020 registrants (excluding ECCMID Day passes and ECCMID Exhibition only registrations) will receive 10 t+ tickets wit their congress material. The book of 10 t+ tickets allows you to travel using the metro, the RER in zone 1, the Île-de-France region’s bus lines (except Orlybus and Roissybus), the tramways, and the Montmartre funicular.
Once validated, the t+ ticket allows you to make as many transfers as you want on the metro and RER networks for 2 hours (after the first validation), and for 90 minutes on the bus and tram networks (between the first and last validation).
The following transfers are possible :
- metro/metro for 2 hours, following the first validation;
- metro/RER and RER/RER within Paris, for 2 hours between the 1st and last validation;
- bus/bus (including transfers between the RATP and OPTILE networks), for 90 minutes between the 1st and last validation;
- bus/tram and tram/tram, for 90 minutes between the 1st and last validation.
It is unfortunately a commonly found technical hitch when using magnetic small tickets in Parisian transports so we would like to provide you some tips which could help tackle this issue:
From the time you receive your tickets to the time they are used, magnetic tickets must be protected. Please keep them away from zips on handbags, GSM or glasses cases, notebooks and various other metal objects such as telephones, MP3 players, keys, coins...
It is preferable to keep the ticket separately, protected where possible in a neutral case.
In case the customers’ tickets don’t work properly, please just present yourself to any stations where a RATP agent will take care of the exchange for free.
