Yes there quite a lot of people sleeping in public transportation but ride are not very long in the subway.
So sleeping is more common on suburban train.

Usually when I have some time to kill, I take a bus at it first stop seat in my fovirty place near to the driver and I sleep for the whole ride !
You cannot imagine how I often I use the line 91.

I see.

Question: I'm not sure if it has been discussed. But what is the plan for Line 14's southward extension. Will it join up with one of the Line 7 branches? Or be extended in a separate tunnel?

No (unfortunately ?), it will be separate tunnel, as in northern estension : both M7 and M13 will keep their branchs.

I see. Just curious. I still find it ridiculous, the plan for the northern extension.

I did undestand but I don't really know the sources for what informations, he want.
I don't really know an official site where there is everything about Paris metro, especially in english, most site will be in french.
RATP web site only give very vague informations.

I can give some links
By exemple the ridership of 2010 : 1.506 billion passengers
http://www.stif.info/IMG/pdf/RA2010Web.pdf page eleven.

Symbioz is a great site regulary updated with accurate information (many editors are working in the RATP) but it is not official, I don't know if it can be used as a source.

My favourite part's the burrowing through that grand courtyard at station Passy, just off the left edge
