Line 10 has a long ridership because it does not deverse very important area.
Quartier Latin is not anymore a key area.


Boulogne Billancourt has the same density than Paris it is an inner suburbs. (So in the reality, it is not a suburbs but an oulter district of Paris)
But without connection with other big lines in Boulogne, the ridership is not high.
The line 9 is more used in Boulogne than the line 10. So like any office and residencial districts with no other connection and no big commercial area the subway is crowded in rush hours and a bit empty outside.

The line 9 has not a higher ridership because it is close toi Eiffel tower, don't be wrong Paris is not a tourist city. It has an higher ridership because it deserve the CBD of Paris.

Tourist are a very small part of metro passengers, Paris is a working city most user of Paris metro are Parisian.
Tour Eiffel or Quartier Latin district are far to be key district for the Parisian.

So, the MP05s that Line 1 will use have AC in the trains? Cause the time when I was using the Paris Metro back in September, it was hot, I was literally cooking inside the trains, even in the MP89 CC.

The MP09 is reportedly the rolling stock, that is intended to ultimately replace the MP59s on Line 11 and MP73 on Line 6. What's Line 11's future anyways, given that it currently is only a 4 mile line.

Hello,

Line 11 will be extended to Rosny Bois Perrier where transfer will become available with RER line E. Work is expected to be completed in two phases, the first one to Hôpital intercommunal (opening around 2013) and the second one to the RER E (around 2020). The line will be almost doubled with this 4 km extension, planned for the most part since the 1900s.

* More information here

by the way the trains will be lengthened to 5 carriages. This is impossible now because of the lack of room is the stabling areas.

New record of daily ridership for the line 14.

2003 : 175,000 (Before the extention at Saint Lazare station)
2004 : 310,000
2006 : 389,000
2007 : 450,000

See the 71th post
Only 410,000 passengers per day was estimated after the extention at Olympiade station, but actually there is 450,000 passengers per day.
Note that this growth is not due at the extention.

450,000??? holy smokes! Did you mean to say that the 61,000 extra passengers are because of the Olympiades station?

And anymore news about extending this to St. Ouen?

Minato ku, do you have the 2007 stats for the other lines?

No the growth is manly due at the develpment of Paris Rive Gauche district and the correspondance with other subway lines.

I have only the stat for the line 13 but not for 2007
Line 13 : 540,000 (2006)

I don't know the daily data for the other lines.

A question. What precautions are there for emergencies on automated lines? Are there walkways for evacuation or something?

On line 14 there is a walkway. On the line 1 (107 years old) which will be automated in 3 years there won't be a walkway but, unlike the London Tube the tunnels in Paris are wide enough to let people get out by the doors. It's why there are no front doors on the trains. It's quite commun to evacuate people in tunnels in case of body on the track for example. Staff is even a allowed to walk in the tunnels while trains are operating.

I really enjoy your photos Minato ku, especially the latest additions to this interesting thread. The Paris Metro looks so unique - it looks like it has so much character. When I finally get around to visiting Paris, I will actually look forward to riding the Metro, along with seeing the famous "tourist" sites.

Merci beaucoup pour les fotos!

Boy! I loved those pics Minato ku! We (my wife and I)'ve just returned from Paris after a 3 weeks "eurotrip" and we rode almost every line in the Paris Metro, we only missed that 13th and the 3bis...

It's wonderful to see that modernization on line 13 trains, just like the one they made on line 3. I promise to post those pics.
