Especially considering that the "metro" network in itself covers only a small part of the urban area, whereas the rest of it is covered by another one "the RER" which isn't taken into account and which represent nearly a billion extra ridership. In cities such as NYC, Seoul, Mexico or Moscow, the "subway" network covers both usage of "Paris metro" and "Paris RER".

I wonder why Moscow and Tokyo are so busy...
Actually, I don't. Both cities are huge (in number of inhabitants) - with Tokyo being the largest urban area in the world. Both systems spread all over the town, have a high frequency and are highly efficient.

Am I right in thinking Moscow has very little commuter rail compared to London or Paris?

No it is not the ultimate Parisian dream because here the RER lines have to many branchs, The ultimate dream for the RER would be maximum 4 branch per line.
RER E with 10 branch
The RER D with less branch have already a lot of problem.

According the latest project the RER E would not take the track of Saint Lazare station at Pont Cardinet, it would be a tunnel to La Defense with a station at Porte Maillot, after La Defense the RER E would take the Cergy and Poissy branch of the RER A.

The only new RER lines that I like in this fantasist plan is the RER G1 and G2.

Wow, Paris isn't going to stop!!!!!!!! It's amazing the way you people think it's never donde with the subway system.

One thing i like in those photos: the seat that comes out of the walls or the back of other seats!

Unfortunately those folding seat are useless as everybody use them even at peak hours. They should have remove the seats that are next to the door on the left side.

Do they also make a big "thud" when someone gets off one of them? It's what happens on the Northern line, and they're hard as rock too

And the refurb is definately an improvement...

That's just what i was about to write... In peak hours you can't use those seats, and if you do... they're not looking you with good eyes.

No, you're right. I'm not talking about the seats next to the doors. I'm talking about those new one on the picture. Before the refurbishment they were regular seats so people are not use to stand there. In my opinion they should have remove one of the seat on the left side of the picture to make more obvious that people have to stand in this area.
