Thanks for the info. Then I guess there must have been problems last week on line 3 as usually the wait was 5minutes though a couple of times 10minutes.

I didn't know Paris had these lean-back semi-seated metal bars. I've never seen them while in Paris. Are they everywhere now or only in certain stations/lines? I've never ever seen them. Is that going into effect to discourage homeless people from laying like someone said here?

Ah yeah I remember a couple of stations having those. Certainly they're not hugely common from memory.

that's the sexiest image of paris i've ever seen
Seriously,very few stations have this sort of things and they're made to have people waiting the metro.they are more comfortable than you think.

I LOVE elevated metro lines (everywhere I've seen them: NYC, London, Paris & Berlin). I've yet to see the queen of elevated metros...Chicago's L-Train. I love the use of old iron or steel as well as the graffiti often associated with elevated lines. Meanwhile, here are some of Paris:

Both Metro lines 2 and 6 are mostly elevated and go underground near their western and eastern ends, which they both have in common (Place Etoile/Arc de Triomphe and Place de la Nation). So in a way lines 2 and 6 both complete a loop around oval Paris-proper somewhere near the middle of the oval/ellipse. What I like about these lines is that they allow people to see a more live-and-work Paris. In fact, both elevated lines that together form a loop also form a boundary that roughly contain touristy Paris inside.

Line 2 in the Right Bank (North Paris)


Line 6 in the Left Bank (South Paris)

Neither the lines 2 or 6 are mostly overground.
Every line of Paris metro are mostly underground.

The most overground line of Paris metro....

6.1 km - 13 stations
  • Passy (incl) - Pasteur (excl)
  • Saint Jacques (incl) - Place d'Italie (excl)
  • Place d'Italie (excl) - Bercy (excl)
  • Daumesnil (excl) - Bel Air (incl)
2.8 km - 3 stations
  • Charenton Ecoles (excl) - Ecole Veterinaire de Maison Alfort (excl)
  • Creteil l'Echart (incl) - Creteil prefecture (incl)
2.5 km - 2 stations
  • Saint Marcel (excl) - Quai de la Rapee (incl)
  • Bobigny Pantin Raymon Queneau (excl) - Bobibny Pablo Picasso (excl)
2.4 km - 2 stations
  • Chatillon Montrouge (incl) - Malakoff Plateau de Vanves (excl)
  • Mairie de Clichy (excl) - Asniere Genevillier Gabriel Peri (excl)
2.2 km - 4 stations
  • Anvers (excl) - Colonel Fabien (excl)
0.6 km - 1 station
  • Esplanade de la Defense (excl) - Pont de Neuilly (excl)
  • Bastille (incl)

The only overground line inside the inner city are the line 2, 5 and 6. The line 5 also have an overground section outside the inner city.
In 2010 with the extention to Creteil Parc des Sport, the line 8 will have an other kilometre overground.

Porte de Charenton
Weird picture because we see a MF67 of the line 3, actually in test in this station.

You forgot line 1 in Bastille which is overground...

Line 6 is almost mostly overground with 6.1km out of 13.6km, which represents 45% of the line.

That Bastille station on Line 1 seems like it's on a bridge or something, what's the deal there?

Bastille station is over Saint Martin Canal.





Like Passy, Bastille station is overground and underground. A weird fact.

Don't want to be such a pain, but it's not Canal Saint Martin, it's bassin de l'Arsenal.

I want to be an even bigger pain than you are. It's officially called "Port de Plaisance de Paris Arsenal", not "Bassin de l'Arsenal".

Seriously now, I think technically the basin begins right after the station, cause that's where the canal returns to open air. Am I right? This is just for the sake of argumentation of course.

I agree. The station is above the canal Saint Martin. Saint Ambroise station is also very close from this undergound canal. It's why it's somewhat deep, as the line 9 cross the canal.

I like the new Imagin R (Contactless card for 12 - 25 years old.) publicity.
It represent several Parisian youth.

Thanks!
I have read that auto-shunt today is essential for distribute all the trains uniformly on both branches since Les Agnettes and Les Courtilles was opened
