The average speed of a suburban line ? I really don't know, that's very hard to know.

Puteaux station

Trains of La Defense - La Verriere line





T2 light rail

It depend
People who live in the northern suburbs take the suburban train at Gare du Nord,
Gare Saint Lazare for the western suburbs,
Gare de l'Est for the easter suburbs
Gare de Lyon for the southeastern suburbs
Gare Montparnasse for the southwestern suburbs.
In an other way more suburbanite take the RER than the suburban trains.

Me, I live in the subway network, so usualy I never take the suburban train for
Sometimes I use the Saint Lazare suburban network because it is really scenic.

What you can see is only a mockup. The aesthetic is subject to change. They are going to be wider than the trains they'll replace thanks to the shortness of the carriages.
They are likely to be found first in Gare du Nord and Saint Lazare stations.
In my opinion they should consider shorter train also for evening services. Short one level trains are much easier to secure when all passengers are concentrated in 2 carriages. This is already like that on line U, where 2 carriages on 4 are closed at night. And those short trains could be used during peak hour on some small shuttle services like Paris Montparnasse-Sevres or Saint-Lazare-Nanterre-U.

I hope it only changes for the better. I really like the interior

Meudon

Station of Montparnasse suburban system




You see the famous "Petit Gris" the worst train type in Paris suburban network. Build in the 1960's 1970's and hated by 99% of commuters.

What is wrong with that type of train? They look a little dated, but not bad to me.

Slow, dirty, dated, too warm, uncomfortable...

Many of these trains will be remplaced by this type of train.
Here a mockup.

It's always great to see busy train systems. It reminds me what real transit systems look like.

Yeh but it was weird, I took these picture in low peak hours.

Seeing this picture, I understand why.
The traffic was perturbated (strike) a train every 25 minutes between La Defense and St Lazare instead of a train every 5 minutes.

So there are three tiers to Greater Paris' rail transit system: Metro, RER, and Suburban?
