Cité Universitaire station, on RER B.

That's in inner Paris.

Crossing the tracks like that... Agreed! Been in that station myself recently. Nice location!

Paris-Montparnasse
I saw something strange.
A Z 8800 of Transilien U at Montparnasse.
This train was used for a local service between Montparnasse and Rambouillet (Transilien N) instead of its usual route.






Although this is rare, this is not impossible to have Transilien U stock of Transilien N because half or the transilien U is along Transilien N.
Transilien U is managed by Saint-Lazare and Montparnasse operation centers.

It has been appearing regularly on Rambouillet missions recently, took it the other day. Z8800s are to become a more common site at Montparnasse as 3 are to replace the remaining Z5300 which should be gone after the summer, taking over most of the Sevres RG missions.

The lowness of the platforms makes it easier to cross the tracks. If this were a high level platform at height used in the UK and Japan, I doubt we would see idiots even attempt this.

No because the RER B has high level platform.
The average height of the RER RATP platform is over 100cm.

Thank you for the information.

Platforms at Cité Universitaire station are high and step-free, as can be seen on this video:



Minato_ku: are platforms at Port Royal as high as other RATP stations?

You're welcome, I'm guessing they'll be coming from U due to N and U being under the same management but don't have information on that so can't confirm it.

This cheap RER line have big exploitation problem, it use the busy RER B tracks between Chatelet and Gare du Nord and have a high irregularty rate with low frequency.

For me it is not a real RER line.
I'm surprised to hear someone speak of D in such terms. What frequency would be considered so low? And has there been any major improvement to the line since the comment 7 years ago?

Btw I'm curious about which Transilien routes have the highest and lowest ridership. I've had trouble finding the daily ridership figures.

RER D south: 16 tph
RER D north: 12 tph
Because the tracks are shared with the RER B between Gare du Nord and Chatelet les Halles, not all trains are going north.

In fact the RER SNCF are part of the Transilien network but I think you mean the non RER lines.
  • Transilien L: 311,000 passengers (Gare Saint-Lazare to Saint-Cloud/Versailles Rive Droite/St Noms/Nanterre Université/Cergy)
  • Transilien J: 226,000 passengers (Gare Saint-Lazare to Ermont - Eaubonne/Pontoise/Mantes-la-Jolie/Vernon/Gisors)
  • Transilien H: 202,500 passengers (Gare du Nord to Luzarches/Pontoise/Persan - Beaumont)
  • Transilien N: 117,000 passengers (Gare Montparnasse to Sèvres-Rive-Gauche/Rambouillet/Plaisir - Grignon/Mantes-la-Jolie/Dreux)
  • Transilien P: 83,000 passengers (Gare de l'Est to Meaux/Coulommiers/La Ferté-Milon/Château-Thierry/Provins)
  • Transilien R: 60,000 passengers (Gare de Lyon to Montereau/Montargie)
  • Transilien U: 50,000 passengers (La Défense - La Verrière)
  • Transilien K: 10,000 passengers (Gare du Nord - Crépy-en-Valois)

Yes, thanks I mean the non RER lines.

It seems the patronage of the different services really varies. I'll have to learn more about them now as I've never focused attention of any services other than Metro and RER (mostly A).

Routes L, J, and H must have extremely frequent service in order to have that kind of ridership.

But it seems that nothing has changed, maybe Minato's english skills if any.

It was compulsory to open this new exit now because the main exit Porte Lescot is now closed.
