Denfert-Rochereau
The station is under renovation, they removed the metal paneling.
I liked it.




You can see the old tiles

This is how line 4 platforms were with the metal paneling.

I hope that they will not put white tiles.

Interesting, especially the idea to draw the lines 2 and 6 as a circle (in fact the first project was to really build a circle line).

However, i prefer the official map because it's geographically much more accurate ; Paris is a relatively small town, and the metro covers the whole city ; as a result, even when we don't take the metro, we use this map to find our way.

Moreover, there are several mistakes ; the use of dotted brown lines is extremely confusing : some of those lines show the way to access to important monuments (the Panthéon, the Eiffel tower...) ; but similar lines are also used to show virtual interchanges (ie, between musée d'Orsay and Solférino) ; it leads to believe that there are virtual interchanges that do not exist in reality (between Trocadéro and Champ de mars - Tour Eiffel or between Luxembourg and Place Monge, between the funiculaire de montmartre and several métro stations) ; and virtual interchanges that exists have been forgotten (between Quai de la Rapée and Gare de Lyon).

The construction of the extension of line 14 has some problem.

Porte de Clichy
The station is flooded. This is water from the water table.

Paris has the best subway system outside of New York City.

Tokyo, Moscow, and London might debate that.

Oh c'mon guys, don't troll. The Paris metro is very good at doing what it does - transporting people around central Paris. For that it is incredibly good and due to the density of the stations it is incredibly convenient. Due to that density it is slower than other metros with further spaced stations, however, Paris also has the RER for distant transport as well. It's a nice solution for very dense central Paris and the much less dense suburbs. Really it's a highly suitable way to solve the Parisian transport problem given the vastly different "central" compared to suburbs nature of Paris.

Don't start turning this into a city vs. city.

The métro is many things (chic, decayed, perpetually under rennovation etc.) but if it's one thing it never felt to me in many years, that's slow.

We never said it was bad... Just not the second best on Earth.

I'd argue that NYC being the best is much more controversial than Paris being second best, but no one was doubting that for some reason (OK, this is a Paris thread, so the focus of the statement was Paris is #2).

But yes, it's dumb to rank them, especially as there's differing functions being done, city geography, etc.

Yesterday for the final of Euro 2016, some lines of Paris metro were running during all the night.
65 stations on 7 lines (lines 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 13 and 14) were open.



That night, it was express service on the 7 metro lines open.
Inside line 1.

Is Notre-Dame-De-Lorette (M12) getting refurbished ? Because it looks miserable but I haven't really seen any trace of activity in a while.

Also, the mosaic at Cluny - La Sorbonne (M10) is now in a sad state of decay.

There is a MP 89 CC parked at Gare de Lyon.
It's on the third track of the line 1 station.

Basilique de Saint-Denis
The station is under renovation.
They removed the tiles but instead of just keeping the wall without anything like in other stations, they put some photo.






Well, it's only for the platforms
