How to Use a Transilien Train from Paris in Ile de France?

Jump to last reply

I plan to go to Meaux when I'm in Paris in a couple months to see the fantastic new WWI museum. It's only about 40 minutes on a Transilien train and Meaux is in zone 5. They say you can use Paris metro/RER tickets for that, as well as for the buses within Meaux. The train leaves from Gare de l'Est. I plan to use a one-day Mobilis for zone 5 which will be about the cost of the separate train fares together, plus I'll have my other transprtaiton that day covered in Paris and Meaux.

I've never taken a Transilien train from a Paris train station, so I'm not sure where you catch these or how to use the single ticket? Can anyone advise. Are these trains in the same area as the RER and you then put the ticket in a turnstile? I just don't remember what the signage is like within a Paris train station re Transilien trains, if they are at the regular quays or what.

thanks
