you don't have choice, unless you take a taxi (very expensive ~60€ )

SNCF made some direct RER B from Paris-Nord to CDG Airports to avoid stops in some bad reputation stations (La Courneuve, Drancy, Aunlay, Sevran )

Well this is not enough, the major problem in France is the justice, young criminals (under 15 years) risk nothing in front of justice, and adults usually have very soft sentences...

There are other alternatives, such as RATP's Roissybus or other bus lines if you're not going to the intra-muros. Plus RER B is not that bad, chances of getting in trouble remain extremely low.

The architecture and landscaping looks good there. How close is that to La Défense?

Actually, you can see La Defense (the Arch) on the background. About 1km away.

Has it ever been suggested to bury the RER C in the 15th arrondissement?
Or that would be too expensive?

Infact in the 60's, it was planned to cover the track and the street along the river with a slab as part of the Front de Seine redevelopment.
This slab would have connected the high rises with a new elevated bank along the Seine.

Are there any works on RER C lines scheduled in the near future ? I have travelled many times between Saint Ouen and Notre Dame and the trains are very slow . RER A between La defense and Auber is TGV compared to RER C

I believe the subject has been brought forth before. The city center sections of the RER C are in dire need of reconstruction. But such a project would be far too costly.

I've used the RER C from St. Michel and definitely share your concerns.

Charles de Gaulle - Etoile.
Thanks to SACEM signaling system, trains can get very close of each other.

Nice pic.
I guess they can only drive at crawling speed while so close to another train?

Yes and if the driver drive too fast the train stop imediately.
SACEM is a system of cab signalling combining automatic train protection and automatic train operation introduced in 1989 in the central section of the RER A.
Train drivers receive information in their cabs that give the speed to travel, they don't rely on the trackside signals. This allow allows trains to operate much closer together.

There can be some queue of trains in the RER A.
With its long tunnel in Central Paris, there are several train between two station in rush hours and if a train stay a too long time in station, it gives situation like in this picture of this page.
This always happen in rush hour.

Is it? What exactly needs refurbishing? I've been to Paris recently and used the RER C a couple of times and found it very ok. Trains were a bit old but clean and very reliable. The central section too seemed fine, with maybe only the stations needing some refurbishment. It was also very fast on the Versailles route, and with decent frequencies except for weekend non-peak.

On the other hand, they could use some security on both the RER and Metro. I've seen NO police or anything like that except once in a Metro station (at Jaures), and I have to say that the Paris transport system felt by far the most unsafe I've used in Europe (maybe only rivaled by Brussels).
I did not see anything degenerate badly, but I saw two incidents with youths who were smashing bottles, shouting at other passengers and driving them away from various cars. Also, begging and singing instruments seemed far more commonplace than anywhere else I've ever been (many were from Romania at that). Jumping over turnstils was also commonplace.

Seriously France, the authorities should take action to make the Metro and RER feel safe, and also maybe to make the smell of pee and the litter go away if possible.
