Buying TER train tickets at the next "bureau de tabac”
In France, regional train tickets for the TER lines of 5 test "régions" can be bought at the tobacconist counter.
Update: July 2019
These 5 test regions are:
- Bourgogne Franche-Comté,
- Grand Est,
- Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur.
While many dales desks are disappearing in small stations, SNCF is working to multiply the distribution channels to complete the sale of tickets by Internet and telephone.
SNCF is also experimenting with the sale of tickets with mobile ticketing stops in small stations and markets and working with La Poste, retailers and local authorities to diversify its distribution channels.
