A good book about Metro with many information, this book is from 2004 and the data are a bit outdated but it is good.
The only problem it is that these 3D maps not include RER tunnel and this is not a complete map but only some part.
I have also a 3D map of the Châtelet-les-Halles fully underground hub at the end of the 80's (My book is quite old). It's very interesting though there's not the line 14 and the Southern part of the RER D.

How widespread is the use of the Navigo card?
Anyone have pictures of TVMs for Navigo cards?

I really don't see why we couldn't finance both, if they both are useful.

Metropheric is so badly needed, I can see you don't live in Paris suburb and it doesn't take you 55min to do 14km in your car twice a day.
It is getting hardly bearable in many places.
Honestly metropherique would make a difference for all those living in the inner suburb + the users in Paris that would have less crowded trains. But mostly to 11 millions pair of lungs.

BTW, Sarkozy declared in a recent speech that something like Metropherique had to be built. So there's a good chance of action being taken soon to start the studies faster.

Nop. T1 will be extended further east, in the inner suburbs while T3 should be extended further north, inside the limits of admnistrative Paris, making the two lines running parrallel.

Correction

Anyway the figure of 40 km for the ring is wrong, as it dates back from when the proposed line didn't make a full circle. According to nowadays proposals and studies, the ring would more likely to be 60-65 km.

But we can't compare a tramway with a subway.

T1 + T2 + T3 = max 300,000 pax/day
Metropherique = Extimated at 1,000,000 pax/day

These two lines will be parrallel but it will not change anything.
It is like said that the line 3 should not be built because it is parralel at the line 1.

I don't get your point, especially your last sentance... but I was just answering to Jean Luc who wanted to know if T1 and T3 will be connected.
