Are there any two lines with the same rolling stock or each has its own?

T7 and T8 have the same rolling stock in design and dimension but as both lines are located on opposite side of the city (and not connected), rolling stock can't be shared between T7 and T8.
Obviously T3a and T3b use the same rolling stock, T3 has been separated into two lines to facilitate operation.

So, we can say that every line has its own rolling stock.

A few more videos again - this time from Avenue de France on the Tram line 3a. Note - listen to all of the languages warning about pickpockets in the RER B at the station. It's so strange to hear Japanese so much in France!

I found an old bus stop in Saint-Mandée (eastern inner suburbs) near Berault metro station.







This stop is not functioning anymore.
I note that it was served by non-RATP bus lines.
Nowadays every buses serving Saint-Mandée are RATP and only line line serves Berault (line 325).

I was travelling with my Chinese relatives (my wife, her cousin and her Aunt). We were all amused by the occasional mandarin announcements. There didn't seem to be as many announcements in Chinese, though compared to Japanese. I heard that far more.

Yes the Chinese announcements appeared some time in 2012 or 2013 especially on line 1 first (being the most used metro line by tourists).

And as it is in many countries now, there are much more chinese tourists than japanese ones now, coupled with the fact that asian people are the prime target for thiefs in Paris, the RATP decided to step up on their awareness campaign...

More complicated an operation than I woud have thought. Would have normally expected a 100% manual job.

BTW this is the first time I use the tram after dark, I never knew the roof panels in stations are lighted! Anyone got better pics of such light iluminations than my mobile phone pics?

Consultation begins on Paris T1 extension

ILE-DE-FRANCE public transport authority Stif and the Department of Hauts-de-Seine launched a public inquiry on September 15 into plans for the 6.4km western extension of Paris light rail Line 1 from its current terminus at Les Courtilles in Asnières to the district of Colombes.

The 10-station extension will link Asnières Gennevilliers Les Courtilles metro station on Line 13 with Le Stade station on Transilien suburban Line J before terminating at an interchange with Line T2 at Parc Pierre Lagravère on the south bank of the River Seine.

The first phase from Les Courtilles to Quatre Routes is due to open in 2018 with the remainder of the extension scheduled for completion by 2023. The line is expected to carry around 60,000 passengers per day when both phases are completed with a journey time of around 20 minutes between Les Courtilles and Parc Pierre Lagravère.

The project is expected to cost €225m with a further €42m for rolling stock, and funding will come from the French government, the region of Ile-de-France, Stif, and the Hauts-de-Seine government.

Public consultation on the line is due to continue until October 25.
At the other end of Line T1, construction is also expected to begin soon on a 7.7km eastern extension from Noisy-le-Sec to Montreuil and the RER station at Val-de-Fontenay. The €400m project is due to be completed in 2017.

Paris tram network carried 190 million passengers in 2013, a big increase due to the numberous extension opened in the end of 2012 and in 2013.

Nice! It's a really nice network. One thing I wish Stockholm would copy from France is the use of grass in the central median. It makes the tram lines look so much nicer.
