I think the worst happenings in the subway are not necessarily people who just shed their clothes and cause attention, but I've heard instances that don't always make the headlines, such as public bathing (yes, there was once a YouTube video of a man washing his hair (bowl of water and everything) onboard a Chicago subway train.

BTW: Do have the destination signs on the M12 trains been changed over to Aubervillers? I would guess that this has been done by now.

Pelleport


Pelleport was in 2011, the station with the second lowest number of entry, only 364,642.

Not surprising, since it is the line with the lowest ridership.

One question I've remembered when I've seen those pics. What's the purpose of those barriers between tracks?

Probably to make it harder to cross the tracks.

Studies of the extension of metro line 10 to Ivry have been launched.
A second further extension to Vitry sur Seine is planned.

While it would be great to boost ridership on the underused M10, I wonder if an extension is really necessary. It would parallel RER C, and in Ivry itself the M7. Can understand that Vitry needs better connections, particularly the area round Av. Youri Gagarin, but would that not be better served by a simple extension to M7, particularly as the Villejuf branch is due to transfer to M14?

In Ivry, there are over 1 km between the line 7 and the extension of line 10.
The RER C has rather low frequencies here (for an dense area), increasing the frequencies in the inner suburbs means increasing the travel time for people living in outer suburbs.
The area is in redevelopmement.

The line 10 is perfect for this, it has a big potential of growth.
The same couldn't be said for the line 7, especially because of the branches.

The line 5 extensions (north and south) are planned to open after 2030.
The line 13 extensions are on hold. I think that they wait to see the effect of the northern extension of line 14 on the line 13 overcrowding before doing anything.

Safe call to wait and see how M14 does before modifying M13 any further.

Is there a map of the proposed route? And at one point M14 was meant to take over an M7 branch, is this no longer the case? Thanks for the info!

I believe the M14 plans were all revised over time. The southern ext will no longer take the M7 Villejuif branch. I believe it is due to high costs of acquiring the line, plus automation AND conversion to rubber tyre.

Even the connection to Maison Blanche is questionable. It is listed as a "provisional" station, but likely will not be built initially.

Same problem exists with the northern extension and Rome station.

Maison Blanche station is almost sure for the line 14 while Rome station is dead.
The works of the first northern extension will begin pretty soon.

It is hard to find any good map of the planned extension for line 10.
It is about 3 or 4 new stationS for the first part to Ivry
-Chevaleret (M6); Bibliothèque François Mitterand (M14, RER C) Porte de France (T3a) and Ivry Gambetta.

Porte de France is provisional but the space for this station will be built with the proposed skyscrapers in the area.

I sure hope some sort of connection is made with M2. At least a hallway with moving walkways between Rome & Pont Cardinet.
