The "bluetram" in test in the Champs Elysees during the COP 21.
We all agree that this is an electric minibus and not a tram

I have question about bus accesibility. I know that all busses in Paris are low-floor vehicles but I noticed that some stops on route map are marked with yellow triangle "Arrêt non accesible aux UFR".

I tried to check on street view what is wrong with these stops but most of them looks perfectly normal for me (i.e. pavement is on normal height, there is no inaccessible underpasage nearby).

Maybe someone from Paris could solve this mystery for me

It is because those stops don't follow the rules for accessibility but infact those stops are prefectly accessible to wheelchair.
All Paris' buses are low floors and have ramps.

Renault Agora CNG of line 24 were built in 1999.

More tram-trains ordered for Paris
05 Jan 2016



FRANCE: On behalf of Paris regional transport authority STIF, SNCF has ordered a further 15 Citadis Dualis tram-train vehicles from Alstom. The order announced on January 5 is worth €75m and forms the second option on a framework contract signed in 2007.

The vehicles are to be delivered from October 2017, with entry into revenue service planned for 2019 on the extension of route T4 from Gargan to Montfermeil

The first Citadis Dualis tram-train delivered in Paris area will be for the Tram express Nord (Tangentielle Nord).

Paris consults on orbital light rail extension
Tuesday, January 19, 2016



AN initial public consultation began on January 18 on plans for a further section of Paris's orbital Tramway des Maréchaux, which would extend Line T3b into the city's 16th arrondissement

Two alignment options are under consideration for the extension from Porte d'Asnières, which would serve Porte de Champerret and Porte de Villiers and an interchange with RER lines C and E and metro Line 1 at Porte Maillot, before terminating at an interchange with metro Line 2 and RER Line C at Porte Dauphine

Very interesting. Thanks. I wonder why they don't continue the line for the last 2-3 km to the Seine. Then we'd have a circular line (okay, in reality two half-lines) running around Paris. I guess there's continued local resistance (we're talking VERY wealthy neighbourhoods) and some controversy about alignment around the Porte Saint Cloud? Someone also told me that the existent road bridge across the Seine isn't strong enough to carry a double tram line.

I wonder how they will cross Porte Maillot.
There is a lot of traffic and I think that the tram line will be often traffic disrupted there.

I agree up to a point, but couldn't that problem be overcome if they choose the western alignment around Maillot? I haven't been there for ages, but I seem to remember that there's a bit of space between the roundabout and the "perepherique" circular freeway.

I don't see any difference, I think that tram traffic will be disrupted by the traffic in both options.
Except if they chose to put the line underground.

Mercedes Citaro (line 350) and Iveco UrbanWay Hybrid (line 46)




Unlike in suburbs, there are very few Mercedes Citaro in Central Paris.
In fact apart for line 88 and the lines 350 and 351 that go to CDG airport, I can't think of any line with Mercedes Citaro that serve Central Paris.

New: free bus service for rugby fans to reach the Stade Yves-du-Manoir in Colombes on matchdays, from Porte du Champerret and from the Nanterre Préfecture station (and back).



http://www.ratp.fr/fr/ratp/r_95491/s...ene-au-stade-/

I'm not sure why theyll be doing this, reaching the stadium is very easy, Colombes is very well serviced by the regular public transport routes.
