No need to rush anymore.
Rectification: more than 3 minutes are required to do the transfer between Saint Lazare and Haussmann Saint Lazare platforms, so you need to rush.

During this video (taken from a Transillien train), you'll see quite a bit of construction going on with the planned Tangentielle Nord



(This is the nearest thread linking Regional trains, with Paris' suburban network)

Maybe we could add the non-RER suburban lines in this thread.
About the Tangentielle Nord, I don't know where to put it.
In suburban trains or in tram as it will use Tram-Train rolling stock ?
No T number are planned for this line.

Although subway, London's station-closure policy's probably more solid than Montreal's:

Aulnay-sous-Bois
They increased the height of the platforms to ease the flow of passengers and to be step free.
This is part of the major renovation of the northern RER B, called RER B+ Nord.
The northern section of the RER B was known for its low platform heights.







This is how was the station in September 2010.

Eastbound platform screen. High frequency ?

Train à quai = train at the platform
Train à l'approche = train approaching

Changed the name of the thread for you.

Perhaps we can merge the trams with the metro thread as the trams are for shorter distances like the metro, right?

No, keep the trams with bus as it is now.
RATP sees the tram like heavy bus line, it is possible to do a transfer between bus and tram with a same ticket but it is not possible to do a transfer between bus or tram with metro.

Okay, will do. As for the tram-train, you can classify it as you see fit. I'd probably put it in here as a "suburban railway" from the sound of it though.

Great work with all these Parisian threads though, Minato!

Saint Lazare mostly a commuter rail terminal, so it has its place in this thread.

SNCF inaugurates rebuilt Paris St Lazare station
21 March 2012

GUILLAUME Pepy, president of French National Railways (SNCF), today marked the completion of 10 years of work when he inaugurated the rebuilt St Lazare station in Paris. With 1600 trains and 450,000 passengers a day, St Lazare is the second busiest station in France.
The Euros 250m scheme was a public-private partnership between SNCF, which invested Euros 90m, and Klépierre which provided the remaining Euros 160m. Spie Batignolles was the main contractor for the work.

The project involved excavating 20m below the station, which continued to function throughout the work, to create three new levels beneath the existing two subterranean levels. One of the new levels provides a new interchange with the five metro lines and RER Line E which serve St Lazare. The other two are for car parking. The station also features a 200m-long glass-covered passenger circulation area. Below this there are two levels with 80 shops and restaurants.

St Lazare has been equipped with 300 passenger-information screens, and 21 escalators and lifts.

Link to the RER E




















Before the station was more like a maze of dark corridors instead of a big and bright station passenger hall.
In 2008

The signage is in French, English and Spanish like in many public space.
It was already the case before the renovation.
I don't get the fuss about it ?

Because there is always at least a third language.
Spanish, German or Italian.

A other picture of Saint Lazare, this time in weekday.
For those who don't know, Saint Lazare is the oldest train station in Paris.
It is also the second busiest train station in Paris and France and in Europe with 450,000 passengers per day.
The traffic increased by 40% this last decade.

Compared to the public signage there, the commercial signs are outsized.
