The Car Jaune network uses a new contactless ticketing service.

The yPass card is a new contactless card for occasional tickets and passes. It can be purchased from all Car Jaune points of sale and can be recharged at the points of sale, online www.carjaune.re or with Car Jaune partners.

Thanks to the M-Ticket Car Jaune application, available from the App Store and Play Store, customers can now also buy tickets and validate them directly on their smartphone when they board the vehicle. Your mobile telephone is now its very own transport ticket.
Individual paper tickets and M-Ticket have a QR Code that is to be validated when you board a vehicle. The yPass card must also be scanned.
You can now access the Car Jaune network schedule in real time. On the website www.carjaune.re in the “Timetable” section, and at the stops by scanning the QR Code.
Individual paper tickets are still available from agencies and on the vehicles.

For any queries, contact the Car Jaune Information Hotline on +262 (0)262 81 82 83
