    Hi Barbara,

    I'm sorry; however, the Eurail Benelux-France Pass does not cover public transit in Paris, Brussels, or Amsterdam. The primary objective of a rail pass is to cover trains between different cities, so rail passes typically do not cover metro systems in European cities. There are some exceptions but none involving this pass.

    For public transportation, there may be separate 'city passes' offered for certain cities. For public transportation in Paris, there is the 'Paris Pass' and the 'Paris Visite'.

    The Paris Pass covers entry to over 60 top attractions, as well as public transportation on the Métro, RER, and buses in central Paris. You would purchase the Paris Pass here: https://www.raileurope.com/attractions/things-to-do/paris-pass/index.html.

    The Paris Visite just covers local transportation in Paris, including the Métro, RER, and city buses. With the Paris Visite, there is an option just for central Paris (zones 1-3) and there is another option that covers zones outside of central Paris as well (zones 1-5). You would purchase the Paris Visite here: https://www.raileurope.com/activities/paris-visite/index.html.

    There is also the Paris Museum Pass, which doesn't cover any transportation but does cover entry to over 60 museums and historic sites around Paris. You would purchase the Paris Museum Pass here: https://www.raileurope.com/activities/paris-museum-pass/index.html.

    To see if there are city passes offered for a particular city, you would click on the 'Activities' link on our homepage. On the next screen, you would just identify the city and country from the drop-down menus.
