Imagine R Card

If you’re staying in Paris for two terms and you have to take public transport on a daily basis for going to lessons and going out, the Imagine R package is the solution that is the most suitable for your transport and free-time needs.  An Imagine R subscription is reserved for students that are less than 26 years old and will cost you half the price of a standard monthly package.  Whatever the chosen zones, you will have access to the whole of the Ile de France during the weekends, bank holidays and school holidays.  You will also have the right to several reductions in cinemas, shops, museums and theatres.


To sign up to a subscription for the first time, you will have to pick up a subscription form from one of the RATP, OPTILE or SNCF Transilien retail outlets or counters.  The subscription is valid for 12 months and you can choose to pay in one single payment or by 9 monthly instalments.  There are five possible start dates: 1st November, 1st September, 1st, December and 1st, October 1st,  January st.


 Remember, the following supporting evidence must be attached to the subscription form:

• An education certificate or a photocopy of a student card for the year of travel you are applying to.

• A passport photo.

Here’s the website for more information:

Watch out: There is a wait of around 3 weeks between when you send your form and when you will receive your card.  Therefore sign up as quickly as possible!
