Due at an assault
of a conductor at Rueil-Malmaison, the traffic on the RER A is shut down.
Result the whole Parisian transportation network is disrupted.

And even worse due to a technical probelm (suspicious smoke), traffic is stopped on the line 14.
So in the busiest section of Paris (Gare de Lyon - Chatelet) only 2 lines out 4 run. The overcrowded metro line 1 and RER D.

Morning rush hour.

And an 'accident technique' = suicide on the rails

And worse, yesterday after the RER A and the line 14, the RER E was stopped due at technical incident. (not suicide)





Nobody will forget this 1st july 2008.

Compared to the London tube, that's very rare then!

It is more frequent in the RATP network.
The RER A and the metro line 14 are quite famous for evacuation like this.

It works very well. The troubles are very unusual. I took M14 during 4 years twice each day, and I got only 1 big trouble...

Suicide is "incident grave de voyageur". That means usually a 35 to 45 min gap in the service..

So RER B trains aren't "double-decker" like RER C ones? (I know they're run by different organisations, I just thought I'd seen RER A trains that were double-decker).

Newer RER A stock are double decker in a bid to increase capacity as the line is pretty saturated I believe.

Recently the saturation of RER line A was featured on French news on TV. They said RER A is a victim of its own success. It shows many users having to wait more than twice to board a train during rush hours. The saturation looked more Japanese than European.

Ya, RER A runs double-deckers, although maybe not to all branches. I've never seen RER B run double-deckers. And yes, RER C is known for the double-decker trains.

I thought Metro line 14 was supposed to take quite a lot of the pressure off the most saturated parts of RER A?

I guess I've always been a bit surprised that Line 1 is the only metro line that goes to La Defense. Perhaps if lines 2,3 or 6 were extended out to La Defense this would offer people more alternatives to Line 1 and also to RER A?

That makes sense. At least one other Metro line should be extended to La Défense.

Meanwhile, it sounds like RER A's primary traffic is from the suburbs if Line 14. At the very least, suburban ridership on line A must be very significant. Everytime I return to Paris, Metro line 14 is never busy. That's weird because it passes through very busy stations, several of which are transfer points. Then of course, Metro line 1 is largely parallel to the RER A and that metro line is perhaps the busiest one along with Metro line 13.
