Agreed. Line 5 station at Bastille looks really good. I mean, look at those tiles! They're so bright and the station looks absolutely spotless. They've done a brilliant job there.

Great work at Bastille!

My two favorite rolling stock are the MP 89 and MF 01, though I also love the MP 05.

For those who did not see my original post:
*For my fantasy subway systems, many utilize railcars that are similar to that of the MP 89 and/or MP 05. Three of my systems have railcars that have the body of the MF 01, but operate like the R-160A of the NYC subway. One of my systems also has railcars similar to that of the MF 77 and MF 67/MP 73.

Miralles Tagliabue EMBT Wins Competition to Design Metro Station in Paris
07 OCT 2014 by Karissa Rosenfield



Enric Miralles Benedetta Tagliabue (EMBT) and Bordas+Peiro have been announced as winner among five proposals of a two-stage competition to design the future Clichy – Montfermeil metro station in Paris. The competition, organized by the Société du Grand París, is part of the ambitious Grand Paris Express project which seeks to modernize the existing transport network and create an automatic metro that will connect new neighborhoods to the city.

In addition to design the station, EMBT’s proposal will provide a new public square for the renewed neighborhood of Clichy-sous-bois that will serve as a symbol of change following the violent riots of 2005. “We want to transform this grey and abandoned area into a vivid and colorful plaza, that will inspire joy and optimism,” stated EMBT.

I think so. Look at the background of this picture, seems to be a space for longitudinal seats.

They should put way more longitude seats, especially on line 1 and line 13.

RATP awards Line 14 CBTC contract
Monday, October 13, 2014



PARIS Transport Authority (RATP) has awarded Siemens a €45m contract to supply communications-based train control (CBTC) for the 6km, four-station northern extension of metro Line 14 to Mairie de Saint-Ouen

Siemens will supply its Trainguard CBTC solution which includes driverless operation for the line, which is expected to carry up to 40,000 passengers per day. The order follows on from its delivery of driverless CBTC for the existing 9km north-south line, which opened in 1998 as Paris' first fully automated line
