Maroc : ça roule pour la RATP à Casablanca



OLIVIER COGNASSE MAROC , BTP MAROC , COP22 PUBLIÉ LE 19/05/2016

...

Une fraude à faire pâlir les transports franciliens

Tout l’inverse du tram, qui atteint un taux de régularité supérieur à 99 % et un taux de fraude de 0,25%. De quoi faire rougir de honte, le tram parisien avec ses 13% de fraude affichés officiellement. Sans doute davantage réellement. Et "nous souhaitons expérimenter la validation à quai en Ile-de-France", prévient Elisabeth Borne. Le système de Casablanca est fermé. Impossible d’atteindre le quai sans passer le portique de validation du billet. Surtout avec une présence humaine dissuasive de deux agents par station, matin et soir, et dans les rames, avec des contrôleurs et une présence policière. Le tram transporte 41% de femmes, contre seulement 15% pour le bus… Seul point noir : les accidents, souvent graves. 130 ont été recensés l'an passé, malgré une baisse de 40% en un an.

Morocco: it rolls for the RATP in Casablanca




OLIVIER Cognasse MOROCCO, MOROCCO BTP COP22 PUBLISHED 05/19/2016

...

Fraud to rival the Paris transport

Quite the opposite of the tram, which reaches a regularity rate of over 99% and a fraud rate of 0.25%. Something to be ashamed, the Paris tram with 13% of fraud officially displayed. Probably more actually. And "we want to experiment dockside validation in Ile-de-France," warns Elisabeth Borne. The Casablanca system is closed. Unable to reach the wharf without the portico of the validation ticket. Especially with a human deterrent presence of two agents per station, morning and evening, and in trains, with controllers and a police presence. The tram transports 41% of women, against only 15% for the bus ... The bad thing accidents, often severe. 130 were recorded last year, despite a 40% drop in one year.

Are RATP busses not supposed to turn on the air conditioning during periods of severe heatwaves? When I took a couple of buses on thursday afternoon the perceived temperature outside was 34 Celsius and inside the bus in must have been in the 50s, close to the levels that would make one faint. However there was no AC / ventilation at all.

By contrast, the Transiliens had a very cold AC on that day.

^ the Ecologist party. Based on Minato_ku's answer I presumed they voted against AC for RATP (the SNCF then falls out of the Region's jurisdiction?)

Okay, I honestly fail to see how one party would have that kind of power.

Why wasn't the decision made on a technical basis?

Why did they vote against AC? More emissions? I highly doubt that the impact would actually be that significant.

AC in bus -> more people take bus in stead of car -> better for the environment.

Paris should phase out buses and replace them by trams, monorails and light elevated rail.

The latter two have the issue of high visual impact. Besides, the metro already has absurdly dense service in the central areas.

Then get rid of buses where metro service is already "absurdly dense".

Absurdly dense is not the same thing as having total 100% coverage of every desired route.

For many of the remaining routes, however, there is enough traffic to justify a bus, but not enough to justify building tram or a monorail.

I too have no insight on how it happened, maybe Minato_ku can tell us more.

The problem with AC in fuel-based vehicles is that the consumption of fuel when the AC is on is huge. In trains this is not a problem because they're electric and electricity in France is produced mainly without emissions (not to say that nuclear waste and the accident risks aren't issues too). The high fuel consumption for AC is maybe a financial issue too.

From Railway Gazette:

First T11 Express tram-trains arrive for testing
13 Jul 2016



FRANCE: The arrival of the first Alstom Citadis Dualis tram-train cars at the Noisy-le-Sec maintenance depot on July 12 marked the start of commissioning of the T11 Express tram-train line in the northern suburbs of Paris.

T11 Express is being delivered in two phases and involves the adaptation of part of a freight railway alignment for tram-train services to improve rail links between districts in the north of the city. Ultimately intended to serve a 28 km corridor between Sartrouville in the northwest of the city and Noisy-le-Sec to the east, the first phase is due to open in July 2017 over an 11 km route between Epinay-sur-Seine and Le Bourget serving seven stations. Interchange will be provided along the route with RER, metro and tram services

Last long week-end line 1 (from Thursday Bastille day to Sunday included) was closed between Porte Maillot and La Défense.

Replacement bus service at Porte Maillot

Funny note, replacement buses were crowded but the regular bus service following line 1 on this route, bus line 73 was quite empty.
Note that line 73 stop is not there.



Most were articulated buses except this one.

It's on zone 4.
A day ticket (Mobilis) covering zone 1-4 costs €11.50.
You can use metro, RER, suburban trains, trams and bus inside those zones (except Orlyval).
