1.506 billion passengers in the metro in 2010, it is by far the highest ridership since 1946. (just after the war, the metro was one few working transportation mode).
1938: 0.761 billion Before the war
1944: 1.112 billion
1945: 1.508 billion
1946: 1.598 billion
1947: 1.453 billion
1948: 1.389 billion
1948: 1.246 billion
1949: 1.246 billion
1950: 1.129 billion Here everything back to normal
Between 1950 and 2000, the traffic stagnated between 1.1 billion and 1.2 billion passengers.

If ten years ago someone told me that in 2010 we will have a similar traffic than in 1945, I would never believe him.
In Buenos Aires is the same.
Metro ridership was higher in the 40s than now.

Trains ridership is lower now than 10 years ago.

Good. In my opinion, there should not be any daytime bus service in Paris i.e. the Metro should be developed to the point that buses are no longer needed. The fact that buses are still needed in Paris is an indictment of the failure to properly develop the Metro over the last 50 years.

Minato, my apologies. I was carried away. I will edit my post later & just include a couple video embeds only. The rest will be links only.

As far as the ridership #s, I agree with Mcarling, larger cities like Paris should have more emphasis to the subway and light rail, rather than bus, as buses can be slow and often unreliable (especially during peak times - no matter how many buses are put out during rush hour on a given route, the congestion and delays are still there). At least with the subway, trains are able stay on time most of the time.

Yes, but then how was construct that piles that support the tunnel? I've read on wikipedia that the tunnel is construct on piles. It was normal, to be construct from the surface if it supported by that piles. Then, how they worked in underground to that piles? Anyway interesting technology for that years.

I couldn't help you for this point because I don't know.
I am sure that the line 7bis was not build using cut and cover.

Nice design to the station. Reminds me of the type of metro stations found in Northern European or North American cities.

Great videos! Hopefully it will not be long before the MP 89 dominates Line 4. Though as Minato mentioned in an earlier post, there is likely to still be some MP 59s running on Line 4, even when the new Montrouge station opens in 2012.

I have to say that even some of the MP 59 speed into Cite, so it is no surprise that the MP 89 do the same (earlier vids).
