Are the days of the beloved Paris metro ticket numbered? • FRANCE 24 English

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Are the days of the beloved Paris metro ticket numbered? • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.

For Parisians, the metro ticket is a familiar feature, but one that’s gradually disappearing. Public transport authorities in the French capital have started withdrawing the books of 10 cardboard metro tickets known as “le carnet”. While the physical paper metro ticket that many Parisians are attached to will not vanish overnight, it’s a shift towards a more modern and eco-friendly paperless future. It’s not the first time the ticket has evolved. In many ways, the history of the metro ticket mirrors evolutions in French history. We take a closer look in this edition of French Connections.
