Yeah, but usually during definition phases the word also refers to tram line and I've allready seen it used instead of "metro" too.

Where ? Most of time it mean busway, even for tram I mostly see tramway than TCSP.

Anyway when we see where will be those TCSP, we know that it coudn't be tram.
-Between Mairie d'Ivry to École Vétérinaire de Maisons-Alfort, avenue are quite small and the TCSP do 90° turn, impossible to build a modern tram like that.
-Building a tram right over the metro extention would be stupid.

The equivalent of BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) in French is BHNS (Bus à Haut Niveau de Service = high quality service bus).

TCSP means surface transport on reserved lanes, bus or tramway, even if this usually refers to buses.

Yes I think. You can see on the first picture a cable on top of the right side.

During the definition process or studies. Usually before mode (Bus or Tramway) is choosen.

Or maybe they consider the metro as a possible TCSP. If I remember correctly the first studies/infos about this project was just about a TCSP (and mostly a Tram). The addition of the metro is quite new here and the fact that it follows exactly the TCSP on the schematic is for me no coincidence.

It sounds like in North American terms like a transit Right of Way (ROW) the "transit" is implied when used. The ROW can be used by either bus or rail-based transit and is usually in a reserved or separated lane from the rest of the vehicular traffic on the road or from the surrounding land uses.

Mobiles as travel passes in Paris
June 17, 2009

PASSENGERS travelling on public transport in Paris will soon be able to use their mobile phones as a travel card.

It is hoped the technology, which will replace the current Navigo travel card (similar to that of the London Underground’s Oyster card) will be introduced by the end of 2010 for travel within Paris, on the SNCF Transilien trains and Optile buses serving the suburbs.

However, teething problems are expected as not all mobile phones will allow users to get through the metro barriers, meaning passengers will have to ensure they have compatible models fitted with what is known as an NFC chip.

This sort of technology is widespread in Japan.

Pilot tests have been carried out on transport and in shops in Caen and Strasbourg, and are planned for Nice in spring 2010 when 3,000 subscribers will be given the new phones.

In addition to equipping people with the new phones, another difficulty is putting the system into place.

President of the Ile-de-France region Jean-Paul Huchon said: “There is a very weighty set of criteria for the STIF (the Ile-de-France public transport executive), transport operators and mobile phone operators.”

Mobile phone operators will in effect have to agree to integrate applications allowing purchases or exchanges for tickets. However he assured the price of travel would not increase.

Mr Huchon said: “For the passenger, it will be the same price.”

While the concept of mobile phones as transit passes, Japan does not use NFC but instead FeliCa by Sony. Two very different pieces of technology here.

Arc Express
A metro ring line in inner suburbs, it is also called Metropherique.
The two first parts of the line (south and north) could open by 2017.

Northern part.


Southern part


Arc Express as whole


This ring line would carry over 1 million passengers per day.

I've read in the Le Figaro that it would be sort of "8" but I didn't understand how.

The big 8 is an other project.
Honestly I prefer Arc express metropherique to the big 8.

In fact, there are 2 projects :

-Arc Express (who was also called "métrophérique" or "orbital"), which is a regional project.

- The "big 8", from N. Sarkozy, which should use line M14 as part of it. But very few people think this subway has any chance to be build before 40 years.

You can see the differences on Minato Ku's last posts.

After the fireworks, I walked from the Champs de Mars (near the Eiffel tower) over 2 km to avoid crowd.
Champs Elysees Clemenceau was maybe a bad idea.






Here you can see how I am happy to live in southern Paris and we didn't even wait for the train.
