Since October 15, the usual "books" of 10 travel tickets for residents of the French capital have been disappearing in the ticket offices of the Paris metro.

It has already been announced that cardboard tickets will gradually completely replace by plastic travel cards.

А 3 cm by 6.5 cm metro ticket, which appeared 121 years ago, at the same time as the Paris subway, often served as a bookmark for books, a holder for launching firecrackers and a "scrap" for recording a phone number.

Initially, tickets to the Paris metro trains were composted at the entrance to the cars. Turnstiles appeared in 1968.

The Paris metro is one of the oldest in the world after London, Istanbul, Chicago, Glasgow and Budapest. Before the outbreak of the pandemic in 2019, 1.5 million people used the metro services of the French capital.
