Paris is not the only city in the world 'guilty' of this. The same is true in London for example. My question to you however is how would you advertise the fact that it can be done without making the fare table so complex it become useless?

In London there are a few places where out of station interchanges on the same ticket are possible (Wood Lane to White City springs to mind) ans it is also shown on the tube map if I'm not mistaken.

According to the Symbioz forums, is to run 24 hours during Nuit Blanche Paris 2012 (October 6-7), though on limited service (some stations will not be served).

Can anyone confirm?

No way? How's that actually working? I guess your ticket is not gonna be valid anymore, how do you get in? I can't find any proof of this, or any other stations where that could work..

This works, the ticket is still valid.
It works for several interchange using the street or exiting the fare area.

Musée d'Orsay (RER C), Soferino (line 12)
Gare d'Austerlitz (RER C), Gare d'Austerlitz (line 5, 10)
Pont de l'Alma (RER C), Alma Marceaux (line 9)
Avenue Foch (RER C) Porte Dauphine (line 2)
etc...

The line 1 will run during all the night (2am - 5am) for the Nuit Blanche.
Every year during the Nuit Blanche, one or several metro lines work all the night with limited service.
Last year it was the lines 12 and 14.

In 2010 the line 7bis was one of the line running 24 hours as the main activities were around the Butte Chaumont.

The interchange is shown, not the fact that it is out of station and can be done for 'free'.

I see, cool! I just find it interesting that Line 1 was selected this time, especially being that it is close to being 100% automated.

Note that the line will be 100% driverless during the Nuit Blanche.
This is not unusual because the line is already circulating completly unmanned during the weekend and at night (after 10 PM).

Hopefully these stations get renovated when the extension gets underway.

Video madness: Lots of Youtube videos uploaded in the last week. Because there are so many, I've only embedded 3 of them.

MP 89CC #33 is now in service on , with #35 scheduled for next week.

It looks like by the end of the month, there will be roughly 38 to 39 MP 89CC trains on , which would leave roughly 11 MP 59 trains left in service. I appears (according to what is posted in Symbioz) that the rate of transfer is beginning to accelerate further.

And if it is indeed certain that will be in a full automated state by January, then I can only assume that the rate of transfer for the MP 89CC will increase to at lease one train per week. If my predictions are correct, this may be the picture with the MP 59.

As of October 3rd, 14 MP 59 trains remain in service on .

6004, 6006, 6012, 6013, 6016, 6018, 6019, 6021, 6022, 6024, 6030, 6036, 6067, & 6084.

I assume that two of these trains will be retired by the end of October, leaving 12 trains in service. If this pace is accelerated, there may only be 11 left.

End of November, I expect anywhere from 8 to 10 trains to remain in service. End of December, 6 to 8 trains should remain.

If the pace accelerates further in January (due to reaching 100% automation by December), then we could see the remaining 6 to 8 MP 59 trains to be retired no later than the end of February. That is, if the pace of transfer were to increase to again...let's say one train per week.

Sadly, this means that there is basically no chance of seeing an MP 59 in service when Montrouge opens (unless the RATP keeps one or two in service longer like they did with the MF 67 on ).

Newer stations look much more cleaner in general. But many older stations have been cleaned up too.

---------------

According to the Symbioz forums. The MP 05 trains #535, 537, & 539 have gangways similar to the MF 01. I still am baffled why the trains have different gangways in between cars.

Several lines in Paris are technically saturated : that means that even at max trains frequency, the trafic flow can't be handled. On line 1, it's just impossible to plan an arrival at 9am westbound. People plan their office day either in arriving before 8:30am or after 9:30am (In Paris, people usually work form 9am to 6pm).
