The magnetic metro ticket will disappear at the end of the year to be replaced by lighter, cardboard contactless tickets, which already exist in other major cities.
The red magnetic metro ticket used to use Lyon transport will soon come to an end, replaced by another device, as we mentioned in May 2022.
A rechargeable card with tickets
The objective behind this change? Buy a single rechargeable medium, such as a subscription, to avoid throwing away individual tickets. “It’s the end of the magnetic ticket, because it’s an obsolete system and the tapes demagnetize on contact with telephones or coins. It’s just the reading format that will be different, but it will remain rechargeable single title“, explained to us Edwige Besse-Barci, director of the Sytral Mobilité equipment department.
In Bordeaux, Lille, Rennes or Toulouse, the change has been made. According to information obtained by News Lyon ce “rechargeable ticket will be charged in addition to the price of the trip“. In Paris, the metro ticket as we have always known it is also disappearing.
