As you can see, it uses Windows XP
Did you recover your card and recharge it in the end?

Note that this is an SNCF ticket machine, so its place should be more in RER and Suburban train thread.
The RATP uses different one.

I prefer those of the RATP, you don't have to put the Navigo card inside the machine.

You're right. But it's one of the machines that are just near the entry of the subway station (in the corridor on the right when you're in front of the main entry), and my intention was to take the metro...

Edit : in fact, at first, I asked to RATP agents if they could help me, because their renseignment office was very close ; they came... and when they saw where the machine was, they said "sorry , it's in the SNCF part of the station, we are not allowed to do anything, you have to call an agent of the SNCF for help !" ; and of course, their office was on another level...

Paris promises free public transport if high pollution continues
Thursday 13 March 2014

Authorities in the Paris region say they will make public transport free if they have to bring in emergency restrictions on traffic because of high pollution levels caused by unseasonably warm weather.

Nearly a third of France's 22 regions were on maximum pollution alert on Thursday for third day running.

A lack of wind, cold nights and warm days have increased dangerously small particles from traffic and heating systems in the air in areas including the Ile de France around Paris, northern and eastern France, Brittany, the Loire and Burgundy.

Paris is basking in unseasonable sunshine but that has meant a dangerous dose of particles that pushed air pollution to levels above those in other northern European capitals this week.

To encourage the use of public transport, the city council announced that green transport, such as its Velib bike-share and the Autolib electric car fleet, would be free on Thursday, as would residential parking.

And the Socialist chairman of the Ile de France regional council, Jean-Paul Huchon, said it was preparing drastic restrictions on the use of highly polluting vehicles and is already tightening speed limits and banning heavy goods vehicles from the city.

If the tough measures come into effect, the region is ready to make travel on public transport free while they are in operation, he said.

The French capital is experiencing unseasonably warm weather in March, with weather forecasters saying Paris would enjoy sunny skies and an average temperature of 19°C.

Last year in March, snow covered the country and temperatures were below zero in Paris (-1°C) on 12 March 2013.

As I said.

Much better. Thanks.

Although I don't understand the need of putting all the transports logos in the background... (yes, I know, graphic design, but senseless... )

Maybe they should think about cutting the ticket-prices and rising the parking fees?

I wonder how much RATP would lose because of that.

There are statistics about the proportion of tickets paid by the RATP and by te passengers? Supposedly, in many mass transit systems around the world the proportion is about 50-50.

Note that fares aren't collected by the RATP itself but the STIF, the public transit authority of Paris area, which pays the RATP to provide the service.
Figures show that rougly 30% of the income of the STIF comes thanks to fares paid by users, 9% from the employers of people commuting with public transit, 38% comes thanks to a tax on companies in Paris area and the rest comes from other various smaller taxes, fines, national and local government support.

Here's source :

http://www.globalrailnews.com/2014/0...-14-extension/

Contractor appointed for Paris Line 14 extension
18 Mar, 2014

An Eiffage Travaux Publics and Razel-Bec joint venture has been appointed to complete the civils work for the northern extension of Paris Metro’s Line 14.

The contract covers the construction of a 3.6-kilometre length of tunnel and the first two new stations at Pont Cardinet and Porte de Clichy.

Eiffage and Razel-Bec will deliver the first section of a new metro tunnel which will eventually stretch for 5.8 kilometres and connect four new stations; Pont Cardinet, Porte de Clichy, Saint-Ouen and Mairie de Saint-Ouen.

The extension will link to regional RER services, the T3 tramway to Porte d’ Asnieres and Line L of the Transilien.

RATP hopes that the project will free up capacity on Line 13, with 25 per cent of the line’s passengers expected to transfer to the automated services.

The line was extended south with the opening of the new Olympiades station in 2007 and in December last year STIF approved a €450 million metro project financing agreement, allowing the main structural works to begin this year.
