What you really want to know, of course, is the number of people entering and exiting your system, not the number of unique individuals.
Question of course is how that number of 2,6 billion is accounted for: do you count someone who enters the network at a RER station, makes a transfer to a Métro station and exits the system from a Métro system once or twice? Only if you consider each system separately, you should count them twice. If you consider both systems as one, you should count them only once.

That can be so confusing lol. My area's bus system takes in about a million riders a month, but that's likely counting transfers multiple times.

If I am interpreting your question correctly, then the arrows are arranged so that those who wish to embark the train wait at the sides of the doors to provide riders space to disembark the train in the middle, straight out the doors. When everyone has left, then the people waiting on the platform can board.

Yeah It's exactly that. You can find those markings on lines/stations that get really busy during rush hour. They put those markings on line 13 because it is saturated on the northern part. Like dl 3000 said, they basically mean that people on the platform should wait for the passengers to come out of the train before rushing in, but it's Paris nobody pays attention to these markings!

The station (and a street nearby) is named after "Christophe-Philippe Oberkampf"

At least the curve here is not as sharp as Bastille

No PSDs at this station yet?

I guess they do the heritage runs from time to time?

Whatever became of the MP55's? Were they all scrapped?

The Sprague-Thomson is gorgeous! I wish they would bring them back to replace the current trains... By the way, what is that red car in the middle ? First class?
And does someone know how many of these trains are still in good condition?

But unlike the yellow car, here there is a real difference in comfort.
Leather seats instead of wood.

If Sprague-Thomson is gorgeous for some heritage days, I wouldn't want to run in this train every day as they are noisier and less confortable than the more recent rolling stock.

There is only a few Sprague still existing, most as service train (they begin to be remplaced by old MF67).
The vast majority of the Sprague have been scrapped.



There are associations, in contract with RATP, involved in the conservation and renovation of old rolling stocks.
