Mobilis card and Giverny

Bonjour all,

Can you use the Mobilis card to take the train to Giverny or is that out of the Mobilis area? What about using it to take the metro and train to the Chateau Fountainbleau? Also, where do you buy a Mobilis card?

Merci Beaucoup!

Sheldon

Fontainebleau is in zone 5, so you can use Mobilis zone1-5 . Train leaves from Gare du Lyon to Avon and then Bus running to Chateau (ticket covers bus as well). Mobilis Ticket available at any metro or RER stop.

Giverny is further out and requires separate point-to-point ticket from Gare Saint Lazare to Vernon, then you take shuttle Bus (~4E cash one way).

So if I understand you, I could go into a metro stop and buy a ticket to take the metro to Gare du Lyon and then the train to Avon and then the Bus to the Chateau Fountainbleau and return all by using my daily Mobilis card?

Don't you need a ticket to get into the Metro stop to buy the Mobilis card?

Merci

All tickets and passes are explained on this website:

http://vianavigo.com/en/tickets-and-fares/

Buy a Mobils pass for zones 1-5 from a ticket machine before your first métro journey to Gare de Lyon. It covers all your public transport in zones 1-5 from midnight to midnight. Ticket vending machines are located inside all métro and RER stops before you have to pass through the turnstiles. The stop you will get off at is called Fontainebleau-Avon. The bus stop is right next to the train station and you'll take bus 1 to the château. Use the website www.transilien.com to get train schedules to Fontainebleau. It takes 37 minutes to get from Gare de Lyon to Fontainebleau-Avon.

I'll add that a Mobilis pass is the same size and shape as métro tickets and slides into the turnstiles exactly the same as a métro ticket. Be sure to write your name and date on it.

There was a poster a week ago that did not write his name and date on the Mobilis and he was stopped and fined.

yes and whined about it.

if you use a point to point ticket the same ticket will get you on metro then train then bus clear to Fontainebleau.

Giverny is in Normandy and so not within the range of the Mobilis pass.
