Indeed. As a matter of fact, I'm sure that many daily users haven't even noticed that the map has actually changed, and this for the simple reason they don't really care. Not everyone is fascinated by that kind of things.

They don't care at all, infact I doubt that Parisian care about anything even if they complain of anything.
Exactly like your avatar say " I love rien I'm Parisien.

It's even more vicious than that. They make you believe that they don't care about anything even though they complain about everything but the thing is, in fact they really do care about lot of things. As a matter of fact Metropolitain's avatar should say "I don't love rien, I'm Parisien".

Crazy french people.

A lot of its riders seem to be going to Asnières-Gennevilliers at the end or just before the end or something!
The main issue of the M13 is its branchs, it decrease the capacity by two in the branch.
The line itsel in the central section has a great frequency of 100s in rush hours but on the branch is frequency is two time lower .

If the branchs were in southern inner suburbs where the population is mostly of medium income this wouldn't be a big problem but the inhabitants of the northern inner suburbs have low income.
They use more the public transportation.

And in the overcrowding will be worse in the next years
Genevilliers, Saint Denis, Saint Ouen have many old industrial area under in redevelopment, so these have or will have a fast increase of the population.

The silver painted columns looked classier, blue looks tacky.

I admit that is true, I also see that adverts were smaller.

Gare d'Austerlitz 1985

Do you see the screens ? I never see it but as I heard, Paris metro in the mid 80's had screens on the platform.

Hello guys, I don't know if this has been mentionned, but recently I've seen a train on the Line 1 (at La Défense) completely covered with an ad (I forgot what was the ad for, but the colour was blue). I think the train wasn't painted, but rather covered with giant stickers on 100% of the train lateral surface (including the windows). I thought this was strange!

j'adore les portions aériennes du métro parisien, à propos, quant est-ce que les nouveaux écrans publicitaires LCD seront effectifs au sein du réseau?

Yes, those TV screens were named "Tube". There were only a few, I remember them in Bastille, Châtelet and Austerlitz only. And for a while, in one carriage only in one train on line 1.
It was really a pain, mostly loud commercial programs, just like in the movie "Total Recall".

No it is not the same.
I remember about the LCD screens in Montparnasse and main RER stations.
These had movie trailers, meteo and pubs.
Those screen don't exist anymore.

What do you think was strange? The fact the train was in an all over add or it was stickers and not pain?

Most all over adverstising on transit vehicles is done with stickers these days. It makes it cheaper and when finsished the stickers come off and the orginal livery is underneath.

it was strange because it was the first time i saw something like that in Paris (and I haven't seen another one after that). It was 1 huge ad (not several) which covered all the train, windows and doors included
