New signage
Old version: all metro/RER and tram lines are shown


New version: only the lines with transfer to the line 1 are shown, this includes the non-RER suburban train.

It appears that the end is near for the MP 59 on

6 trains are listed as remaining on the Symbioz site. However, it is mentioned in the forums that only 3 are running (with the others stored at St. Quen).

Next four MP 89CC slated for transfer:

#19 on 12/4 or 12/5
#04 on 12/12 (again, this is my favorite of all the MP 89CC trains)
#39 on 12/19
#43 on 12/27

So it appears by years end (if I read Symbioz correctly), there will be 46 MP 89CC stock on by the end of the year.

Mentioned earlier that not all 52 trains will be utilized until Bagneux.

Why this large number in 1946?

Just after the WW2, the metro was the only rapid mode of transportation.
Because of the war the number of private cars and buses was low and gas was lacking.
Unlike many other cities, Paris abolished its tram network during the 1930's.

In 1950 the rideship of Paris metro was 1.129 billion.
Between 1950 and 2000 the traffic stagnated between 1.1 and 1.2 billion passengers.
1955: 1.078 billion
1960: 1.166 billion
1965: 1.202 billion
1970: 1.128 billion
1975: 1.055 billion
1980: 1.094 billion
1985: 1.177 billion
1990: 1.226 billion
1995: 1.029 billion (big strike)
1996: 1.091 billion
2000: 1.247 billion

Note that before the WW2 traffic of Paris metro was under the billion
1920: 0.688 billion
1925: 0.794 billion
1930: 0.888 billion
1935: 0.831 billion
1940: 0.650 billion
It is in 1941 that the traffic of Paris exceeded for the first time the billion annual passengers with a ridership of 1.035 billion.
After 1941, it never felt under the billion mark.
The lowest ridership since then was in 1953 with 1.028 billion passengers and in 1995 with the big strike.

That's a lot for the Paris Metro. I'm sure ridership figures for Moscow & New York are greater. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

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

Jules Joffrin as temporary northern terminus.



I am guessing that the people in the yellow vests are the RATP agents? If so, they seemed to not bother the guy filming this video.

It is true, a bit greater for New York and much greater for Moscow.
Moscow metro is the busiest network in Europe and New York the busiest network in the Americas.
Paris metro is the busiest network in the European Union.

Moscow Metro: 2.39 billion
New York City Subway: 1.644 billion

The busiest network in Europe
Moscow Metro: 2.39 billion
Paris metro: 1.524 billion
London Underground: 1.171 billion
Madrid Metro: 0.6346 billion
Prague Metro: 0.5785 billion (2008)
All the data in for 2011, execpt Prague

Note that France is by far the country with the biggest metro ridership in the European Union and it is only because of Paris metro.
Paris metro carries more passengers than all metro networks of Germany combined and Germany is the second EU country by metro ridership.

It truly depends of the agents, sometimes they don't care, sometimes they can be quite aggressive against photographers.

The ridership from 1901 to 1998 on a book "Un siècle de métro en 14 lignes".
The ridership of 2011 come from the PDF http://www.stif.info/IMG/pdf/RA_2011_BD-2.pdf published by the STIF, Paris region transport autority, page 11.

Unrelated question:
-Is there really a direct connection between line 6 and RER C at Bir Hakein, as it is shown on the maps, or does one have to exit one station and use the street to reach the other station?

Thank you!

Also, different thing: When is it planned for the ligne 14 to be prolonged south?
And what station will it contemplate? Will there be a station at Maison Blanche (connection with line 7 and T3-using the street)?

I saw somewhere that Maison Blanche was being considered as an provisional station (or whatever it would be called), like Rome is with the northern extension.

For the moment I don't have any sufficient information about it.
Rome for the moment is not planned at all.
