Lignes 3, 4, 8, 13 : 2 trains sur 3.
Lignes 2, 5, 7, 9, 10, 12 : 1 trains sur 2.
(ratp)

I never ride the metro during strikes.

don't worry, nobody will get on time. at my college during strikes half of professors is missing, and the other half is late.

I second HARTride_2022's question, do automated trains like on Ligne 14 and soon Ligne 1 continue to run as normal during strikes?

Yes they do. That is the main reason why line 1 is being automated. It's a good thing considering that it's one of the busiest lines ( #1 busiest?). And as it goes business centers likes La Defense, tourisitic places like Concorde and all the historic axis, and nightlife districts such as Bastille and the Champs Elysées, it is ALWAYS busy, not only during rush hour.

Quote:
Normally according RATP site in metro between Stalingrad and Mairie de Clichy, it takes 15 minutes.
-It seems that they underrate the change at Place de Clichy, only 1 minutes according the site, over 2 minutes according me.
-I don't know if they also include the fact that train runs slower in rush hours, especially in the line 13.
-Don't also forget that the strike decreases even more the speed of the train and increases the waiting time.

So instead of 15 minutes I will say 30 minutes.

Considering that theres 1 out of 2 trains on line 2 it might be longer. Line 2 going westbound in the morning is really crowded, if a train arrives late, sometimes you can't even get onboard. But on the other hand, nowadays when there are strikes people take their day off or take a Velib or car, so it might not be that bad. Anyways, I would suggest you don't take any risk and give yourself 45 min to go there. In the case where the strike is not too bad afterall, well you'll be there early, and better to be early than late.

Nope , actually it's a different model (model A), while "la Libellule" is model B. The main difference is the number of pillars (model A: 4 pillars; model B aka Libellule: 3 pillars) and also the shape of the glass canopy.
Both models had 2 versions: closed or open sides. Abbesses one being the only remaining entrance of model A.

BTW, this entrance originally was at Hôtel de Ville. They moved it at Abbesses in the 70s, which is a bit weird because Abbesses was/is a Nord-Sud station (the Nord-Sud stations have never got Guimard entrances). Besides, this entrance still has the typical Nord-Sud brown tiles of Gien earthenware, while normally, the Guimard entrances always have white tiles.

Here is the entrance when it was at Hôtel de Ville station:



Section plan (model A, closed sides)



Model B-both versions (1st & 2nd columns: Châtelet and Pte Dauphine) vs Model A-open sides (3rd column: Abbesses):

Nice pics . A question:
The wall dedicated to Simón Bolivar at Bolivar station was removed during refurbishing late 2008?

Unfortunately yes.
I couldn't say that it was beautiful but a new one would be greater than nothing.

The wall dedicated to Simón Bolivar in late 2008, not long before it was removed.

Hey Minato, the photos of the Jaures station. Is that station being renovated? It looks like it desperately needs one.

Thanks Minato. I hope it eventually gets renovated. It looks like it is aesthetically falling apart
