Ride for free - KIDS
And teens can also use the bike-sharing system for free. The savings for families start this September.
Because there is something to see everywhere
It was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it story earlier this month, but Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo announced that she planned to make public transit free for children under the age of 11, starting in September. This is one step toward her dream scenario—to make public transit free for everyone—and has a lot of positive implications for traveling families later this year. Let’s break it down:

Didn’t kids ride for free in Paris?

Metro and bus rides have been, and still are, free for children under four, and half price for children ages 4-11. The new deal would give all children under the age of 11 free rides—and their parents aren’t the only ones to benefit. Parisians with disabilities under the age of 20 will ride for free; and elementary, high school, and university students will receive half-off the Imagine’R travel pass, which allows unlimited travel in the Île-de-France region.
There’s also a plan to give anyone age 14–18 free access to the city’s bike-share system, Velib, another element in Mayor Hidalgo’s overall mission to encourage people to find more sustainable ways to explore Paris.
Do other cities offer free public transit for kids?
Luxembourg just started offering free public transit for everyone! It’s the first country to do so.
In London, children under age 11 already ride buses and trams free without a ticket; children under the age of five have to be with a fare-paying adult (I mean, obviously?).
In Berlin, children under six ride for free and 6-14 ride at a reduced rate.
In New York City, it depends on how tall your kids are, so apparently the MTA is just like an amusement park ride: “Up to three children 44 inches tall and under ride for free on subways and local buses when accompanied by a fare paying adult. Infants (under two years of age) ride express buses free if the child sits on the lap of the accompanying adult.” It gets slightly more complicated in Tokyo, where up to two toddlers (a toddler = up to age 6) ride for free with an adult. So, in short, free for under 11 is a fairly progressive notion.
