Wow isn't M13 crowded enough?? I know you posted the figures before, but its daily ridership is at or around 500,000 already! I wonder how the line will cope with the new stations...

Yes, the M13 is overcrowded.

RATP says that the people who will take the metro on the extension already used it at the old terminus, after they have taken a bus...

But it will aslo add 20,000 new passengers.
Even without extention the traffic grow, there is many construction in Saint Denis.
RATP installated a system in Chatillion Montrouge that would increase the frequency of 5 second.
The renovated train have 5% more capacity than the nrefurbished train.
In 2011 with the new automatic system Ouragan, the line 13 could have a frequency of 90s.
And later the line 14 could take one branch of the line 13, so the line 13 without branch would have lesser problem

Is there a video that demonstrates the high frequency of the Paris Metro at rush hour?

Thanks, but I have seen that already, and it is a terminus station so it's not really a good representation...

Well, maybe this one on line M13 :

http://www.dailymotion.com/relevance...-va-finir_news

It's in french (and sometimes a little bit strange), but parts of video are really impressive, especially at 1' 22"...

It is a report about the overcrowding in the line 13, but it don't show how really bad it is.

When I was in Paris, I was very impressed about the VERY high frequenties. You never have to run for your train. How many seconds do the trains stand still at the stops/stations? I know it's very short, and I like the sound when the doors close.
