It seems to be quite usual in Paris, I'm afraid.


Thanks, I thought so
This has nothing to do with education. Paris is just a big city and like in a lot of big cities people are stressed, don't have time and act like douchebags. Paris is not the only city in the world with this sort of behavior.

Line 14 is just the most beautiful and fantastic metro line in the world!

A bit too short for me, the line 14 needs to go further in the periphery.

The whole line in time lapse.


I don't know when the author of this video took it but I never saw Saint Lazare and the line 14 with so few people.

But Line 14 is now part of the "bigger" expansion project. That I am glad to see. It will take years, but it looks good.

Strange the way (s)he uses in St-Lazare : there is an easier way... But funny video.

At what time did you take your video??? Because, I often take this line and I have never seen such an empty train.

I didn't take this video, I found it in Youtube.
Anyway usually near 10 am or 2 pm, the metro network is not not busy.

During the working week, this line is always crowded whether it is the morning, noon or night. Even the weekend. I can't remember the last time I saw so few people in the train as there are in the video. Anyway...

Inside a MF01


I have some good news for you HARTride 2012, I heard that the MF01 will soon run on the line 5 on normal service.
There are already three trains ready to run on the line 5.
MF01 numbers 047, 048 and 050.
The MF01 049 is on test for the new ATO system called Ouragan.

Thanks for the update Minato.

What will this new system do for the trains?

Hello guys,
i just booked a fews days Paris, thursday-sunday.

Since my last visit in 2005, a lot of things have been changed. I want to visit the #T##T2##T3##T4# and the extensions of #M##M14# en of course the new #M##M2#-stock .

If possible, i want to visit the ADEMAS-museum as well. Is that possible? Is there any Sprague running the next days (in the night?)?

Does someone have other recommendations? Maybe special buses (which lines?) Is the Renault R312 still running?

Thanks in forward!

I totally desagree...my city is a big one, but I still see how young people let them seat to old people, or pregnant women, and it´s not very difficult to see than type of cases...

My friends from London loved not to see that stressed people you say in my city!!!

I feel sorry you have to fight daily...

Which part do you disagree with? The fact Paris is not the only city in the world with this type of behavior? I didn't say that every city in the world was like that but some are. And like you said, your friends from London thought it was cool not to see stressed people in Madrid. So you are suggesting that London is like that too, so you are actually agreeing with me

In Paris too, young people let their seats to old people, and it's a pretty common thing.

And you're sorry i have to fight everyday? Yeah I bring my nunchucks on the metro everyday

No but more seriously, I don't feel like I fight and struggle everyday. I guess it's just when you live somewhere you just get used to the local type of behavior, so I'm just blind to it now. Who knows, maybe if I go back to Madrid I will find it more stressfull than Paris.

I rode the MF01 when I was in Paris in 2009 and am very glad they will be running on Line 5 soon. The next time I go to Paris, I am hoping that the MF01 will be in full operation on Line 5 & the MP05 will be already rolling out on Line 1, not to mention the MP89 running on Line 4.

I also would like to ride Line 14 for I did not get to ride that line when I was in Paris.

Neat videos by the way Minato. I'm glad that there are more of these videos on YouTube now, as opposed to just a handful here and there as of last year. I know I posted a pic of my ride on an MF01, but I think I mis-labled it as MF88 LOL. The MF01 I was on was extremely crowded too, standing room only.
