In Paris, the concrete surface is pretty heavy.
They have strengthened the tracks to avoid problems like Clermont Ferrand or Padova.

Will it work? Only the times can say so.

Looks like Paris is just about as segregated as large US cities if not worse, judging by the lack of European faces on the T5.

No, just no. Save those comments for another thread please.

Anyway, the tram line looks awesome Minatu Ku. It's nice to see public transit options continue to grow in the suburbs.

Lack of European faces doesn't necessarily mean segregation, it can also mean large incoming immigration. Of course if you go in an immigration hotspot you won't see many European faces, but from experience you may cross the road to the next suburb and the social fabric there can be very different (like, a beautifully mixed one). It varies even in the same suburb, the immigrants can live in the highrises while the neighbourhood of detached houses (a bit of garden + garage) right near them will be a typical (lower-)middle class residential area.
As I understand it the story in major American cities was that black and white communities split, whites fleeing towards the suburbs and the black / latino communities occupying the inner city. That doesn't recall Paris (or London) much, these places are arrival hotspots where (as an immigrant) you'll find cheap living, survival networks or even family members, but the point is to move out if you make it. There isn't much of a split as in American cities as it is a much more dynamic scenario, but that's how I see it.

I second this. The "93" is indeed an arrival spot. During the past it has welcomed poor domestic immigrants from Brittany and Auvergne, and later from Portugal and former french Algeria (both-european and non-european algerian).

By the way if you want to see "european faces" ;-) it is still possible as we now have new immigrants from Poland, Serbia, Ukraine and Portugal again because of their economy drop.

Transdev CEAT network: Heuliez GX 427 Hybrid

Line 109: Porte d'Orleans - Fleury-Mérogis Prison
This is an express line between inner Paris and the largest prision in Europe

I couldn't take a good picture of the front because the bus left the station as soon as I arrived.

We also see a Mercedes Citaro of the RATP line 188 (the bus where I was).

Why did they change RATP livery for a silver only one?

Because this is not an RATP bus, here this is Transdev CEAT.
The RATP is not the only transportation company in Paris area.
While in Paris and inner suburbs, the RATP is almost the only bus company, in outer suburbs there are many different companies.

This picture is in inner Paris (Porte d’Orléans) but this is an express line to the outer suburbs.

The TVM line is now equipped with MAN Lion's City G.
A mix of former MAN Lion's City G of the line 183 and 187 and new vehicules.








Former Agora L of the TVM are now in the line 187. The line has lost in change.
Its recent stock was replaced by a older one.
