Our tip

On most Android phones, present the card on the back of the phone. On iPhones, present the card on the top of the phone.

The Navigo card and the telephone are two separate ticket carriers. The Navigo card passes and the passes in the mobile application are not synchronized and it is not currently possible to transfer the tickets or passes from a Navigo pass to the phone or vice versa.

You must choose to use either your Navigo card or your phone with the app.

When you consult a Navigo card with your phone, the vibration indicates that the card is detected by the phone but the reading / writing continues, so do not move the card and wait for visual confirmation from the application before removing your card (the writing step is necessary to reload a title).

Purchase conditions

Up to 29 T + Tickets (Full price or Reduced price) can be loaded onto the phone. Please note, the same telephone cannot simultaneously contain T + Full Price and Reduced Price tickets. It will be necessary to use all of your full-price t + Tickets before you can purchase reduced-price t + Tickets and vice versa.

Purchasing a Navigo Mois and Navigo Semaine pass to be loaded into the phone requires authentication on Navigo Connect by creating an account.

If you have a valid Navigo Annual or Imagine R pass on your Navigo card, no ticket or pass will be offered to you for purchase (to avoid a duplicate purchase).

The data is protected: the tickets are stored in a safe which is the secure element of the smartphone.

Solidarity Transport Pricing is not yet available for purchase over the phone. Likewise, it is not possible to update your card profile from the phone.

The telephone ticket purchase service is a new service developed by Île-de-Fance Mobilités which will continue to develop gradually over time. The addition of other tickets and prices is part of these changes.

Please note, the service does not allow several people to travel simultaneously. 1 phone = 1 traveler, like for a Navigo card.

All tickets must be systematically validated when accessing the network, including exiting, during connections: otherwise you will be considered without a ticket during a control.

To validate a ticket stored on your phone, you must have a valid title and activate NFC in your phone settings. The SNCF app does not need to be open or to have an internet connection.
To validate your ticket, you must present the back of your phone to the validator target.

If you have several tickets and passes (Navigo Day and t + ticket for example) loaded on your phone, the pass will be validated as a priority if it is in the valid period and zone.

When checking with a Navigo Month or Navigo Week pass, you may be asked to display your photo from the SNCF app and your date of birth (this information is saved in your Navigo Connect account).

Likewise, if you use a reduced rate, you will need to show the agent your proof of reduction.
