A 21st-Century Revival

Paris had a tramway in the 19th century, which was subsequently dismantled and replaced with the metro. But a swelling city population and a need to connect Paris with its suburbs has led to the revival of the tramway in the city of light. With only one line, the T3 tram, running within Paris city limits, coverage is still limited and concerns mainly south Paris, but the tramway is expected to grow in the coming years.

You can ride the tramway using regular metro tickets and passes.
(See "Paris Metro Tickets and Passes" page for more info)
