Great ideas from Transilien


Local produce

No time to shop? In 60 Transilien stations, local farmers offer weekly baskets of fresh produce—some organic—either in the station or immediately outside. Choose the large or small-size basket for a week’s worth of fresh, vitamin-packed seasonal fruit and vegetables, with recipes to boot.

Give car-sharing a try

Can you save money and protect the environment at the same time? You can if you use car-sharing between home and your station. A free Internet service lets you find fellow commuters to share your trips to Transilien stations (outside Paris). Sign up, key in your station and route, and you’ll see offers displayed. Some parking areas even offer discounts to car-sharers.
