I arrived to CDG Airport yesterday morning with some Swedish friends and persuaded them (it was rush hour) that the fastest option would be to take RER B to central Paris. Once arrived on the patfirm I noticed that the first two trains to depart were "omnibus" (stop everywhere), so I told them that there's plenty of non-stop trains to Gare du Nord - So let's wait a bit. But... The next two trains were also omnibus, which made me - and, frankly, the SNCF - a laughing stock among the visitors. Have the direct trains to/from CDG been dropped? Or are they suspended during rush hours? Does anyone know more?

All RER B trains are local during rush hours.

Thanks. Yeah, I figured as much. It must be pretty recent, though? The time tables hanging as paper posters in most RER stations still announce a number of non-stop trains between 7.30 and 9.00. The electronic screens contradict them. The screens are correct.

Gare de Lyon
The platforms of the RER D at Gare de Lyon will have a little refresh.

@hans280 : There are no slots available for direct trains during rush hours. Don't forget that this line is totally overcrowded.

In fact, theses trains are most of the time empty... and are very unpopular here.

And yes, the posters are very often outdated

Speaking about the line B : the southern part was exploited by the CMP. The rolling stock was very fast and reliable. Here's a restored "Z" train :











"spitting is forbidden"




First class seats :

Viaduc du quai de Javel (RER C) :



This bridge is located between the stations Javel and Garigliano. On the right, André Citroën park, recently built on the location of the former Citröën plant.

I've always wondered that as well, but it seems that the RER ridership figures are separated between the RATP and SNCF services.

2012 seems optimistic. Is that a typo? Maybe 2021?

Rosa Parks
This station is made of a simple island platform and passengers space under the tracks.






Tram T3b













A good station for trainspotting, all the traffic of Gare de l'Est pass there.






Because of the lack of trains for the RER E, a new local service between Gare de l'Est and Villiers sur Marne will be created using five Z 50000 trains.

What is it in terms of average weekday ridership? Around 3.5 million?

Do you have more info about these trains (schedule or stations served) ?
When will it begin ?

I used to take the Chelles - Paris-Est service that ran twice in the morning but since yesterday, it's been replaced with normal RER E to Haussmann.
