If everything goes according to plan the Citadis Dualis will start operating on the "Tangentielle Nord" line in 2014. Construction of the "Tangentielle Nord" should begin next year.

Thanks for the info. The Dualis seems like it might become an extremely versatile model.

Is the light rail system well integrated with other rail transit services such as RER, metro, inter city rail etc.?

Yes and no.
T2 and T4 offert cross platform interchange with suburban and RER train.
For the T1 and T3 metro and RER entrance are next to the tram station.

Anyway there is no connection between light rail lines, these are all separated in different part of urban area (T1 noth, T2 west, T3 south, T4 northeast)

T1, T2 and T3 use the average ticket like metro and buses
You can use the same ticket between tram and buses.
you should change of ticket between tram and Metro, RER (inside zone 1)
One ticket T = one metro or RER (zone 1) trip or 90min of buses and tram.
Suburban train don't use the average ticket T.
T4 is Transillien SNCF so it don't use the average ticket T.

This may brother tourists but most parisan have contactless Navigo card, you could use every type of transports depending your subscription zones.

The tram train

Unfortunely when I took this line, the whole Gare de l'Est suburban network (it include the T4) had a big power cut.

Still few months before the opening of the southwestern extention (Issy Val de Seine - Porte de Versailles)
Porte de Versailles wil be the first station with two tram lines in Paris area (T2 and T3).



Now all T2 tram trains have the new face, a more secure for the pedestrian because the extention will be less segegrated than the actual route.

Is any portion of the Paris light rail lines underground?

I was going to ask the same question myself. On our last night in Paris, the school group I was with went to the Eifel Tower using what seemed to be the underground but the trains in use were those double deck trains that serve in routes to minor towns and other areas.

You seem to be a bit confused about Paris transit

Light rail (which is the topic on this thread) in Paris is tramway running at grade as you can see previously in this thread. I think the only 'underground' station is the one in La Defense

The line that brought you to reach the Eiffel Tower is a RER line: RER (Réseau Express Régional - Regional Express Web) lines are suburban rail used prevalently by commuters who live in Paris metro. In central Paris they are all underground and well integrated with the metro web

Metro... well, Parisian metro is that one

The Paris Visite pass allows you access to all systems with the zones of choice. I was reluctant to buy one due to the cost, but it became extremely handy for transit-fanning, and not having to worry about zones. The pass took me place, I doubt tourist would even think of going.
