The Bastille-Place d'Italie section of the line 5 re-opened after the summer renovation of the elevated section.
It is nice to see the elevated section with new plaint, no graffiti and new ballast.

I assume that it will not be long before graffiti resumes along that section. So sad.

Oh, and according to Symbioz, MF 01 #101 is being prepped for revenue service.

Good news, the state of Paris metro is quite a shame for one of the weathiest city of the world.

Rail chiefs launch €350m Paris Metro clean-up
Published: 03 Sep 2013 10:17

The time has come to tackle Paris's grimey Metro, once and for all, according to transport chiefs, who announced this week a multi-million euro plan to rid the network and its stations of their infamous filth.

It’s a common complaint from visitors and residents alike: filthy, litter-strewn Metro stations, smelly stairs and walkways, and hot, humid platforms.
It should bring hope, then, that the operator RATP – which runs the Metro and other rail services around Paris – pledged on Monday to invest €70 million ($92 million) per year, over five years for a mass clean up of the network.
From October, there will be 3,400 unannounced, monthly check-ups by grime inspectors on the daily work of the 1,000 cleaning staff employed by RATP.
The inspectors will be tasked with ensuring a proper standard of cleanliness and odour removal from thousands of trains and 366 stations, including the notoriously dirty Châtelet-les-Halles station.

A further €40 million will be spent to try to put a plug the longstanding problem of leaks on Paris Metro, which can cause humidity, deterioration of walls and platforms, and slippery or stagnant puddles inside the station.
Between now and 2015, works on 70 stations like Bastille and Palais-Royal will aim to make the city’s more than 100-year-old underground network watertight.

The investment plans come just days after it was revealed that RATP had lost €100 million in fares last year alone, due to unscrupulous commuters evading ticket inspectors.
The same report found that fare-dodgers had cost national rail provider SNCF a whopping €300 million in 2012.
As a result, RATP chief Mongin on Monday called for a hike in fines, as a way to put off potential fare-dodgers.
"We punish fare-dodgers too modestly," he was quoted as saying by French daily Le Figaro.
"So I will be asking the state for an increase in the amounts of fines, as a deterrent for these kinds of violations, especially for repeat offenders," he added.
At present, those caught without a proper ticket on the Paris metro, and buses in and around the capital, face fines between €30 and €60.

Fare Dodgers

Well Mongin is wise to tackle this, but the problem is much much deeper than prosecution of fare-dodgers (which often persecutes ill-informed tourists more than habitual barrier jumpers): IMHO the problem starts with the RATP station staff who seem more interested than nattering to their mates for free on the guichet phone than in tackling those people who jump over the ticket barriers.

Let the Parisians try jumping the Oyster barriers in London and see what happens!

If you're referring to the people at the information / sales desks, I really doubt it is their job to do that. I would suspect tackling cheaters is a security issue, and I've rarely seen any security staff at all in the Paris metro, three or four times maybe in four years. Ticket control is also scarce, in the same period I've only been controlled maybe ten times, at best.

I'm not surprised though that SNCF is making much more loss, I've always been in awe of how much of a free meal train travel is.

Anyway the main information in my opinion is the big clean up of the network.

I was about to ask that same question. I figured that all of the MF 67 had been pulled from Line 5.

Now we wait for the new MF 01 trains to go to Line 9. Has anyone heard any updates as to when it may happen? The last time I heard, the RATP just said September. Well, it's now September.

Yes, true. And I nearly forgot about Boulogne, which will dictate the deliveries, since the new shops aren't ready yet.

Absolutely sordid. Dreadful.
A little paint effort would be welcome.

Réaumur - Sébastopol
With the renovation work of the station, they put new turnstiles to the platforms of line 3.
