    Totally recommend getting RFID cards for all cities that have them. The possibly unused balance is worth it to me to not have to figure out ticketing etc. Is there a weirder ticket machine than the BART’s “tell me how much change you want” machines? I found those almost impossible to understand the first time I encountered them in SFO after a 10 hour flight (and tranquillisers). Clipper works with everything I have tried so far (including Caltrain). The Orca in Seattle is great too. Also, the Montreal one is pretty easy to get and recharge (though it’s a flimsy paper ticket with embedded RFID chip). Don’t know if there’s a pay-as-you-go Parisian one.

    What a load of smartcards! Pity there isn’t an integrated-ticketing card for all systems worldwide ;)
