It sounds very 20th century. I havn't seen this for a while. Now you can board by all doors only on the 18m long buses and trams, excepted on the airports services.
Fare evasion is an issue in Paris. In my opinion the only solution would be to gate the tram stops like in Istanbul or Casablanca or a conductor in every tram like in Amsterdam.

Maybe MTR MTR is referring to driverless buses.

A question: are RATP envisaging the aquisition of new trams for T1?

How long are the trams on T1? they seem much shorter then the ones on T3.


Are the heritage bus runs organized by the RATP?

Yes they are shorter. 29 meters on T1, 45 meters on T3
On the new line T11, I think around 44/45 m

Work starts on T13 Express
27 Sep 2016



FRANCE: Preliminary work including vegetation clearance is due to start this autumn for T13 Express, which will see tram-train services introduced between Saint-Cyr-L’Ecole and Saint-Germain-en-Laye in the western suburbs of Paris.

Formerly known as Tangentielle Ouest, the project has been renamed to reflect the use of vehicles capable of running on heavy rail infrastructure as well as new on-street alignments. This brings it into line with the T11 (Epinay – Le Bourget) and T12 (Massy – Evry) projects elsewhere in the Ile-de-France region

I think all articulated buses can be entered by all doors. It is certainly the case with 304, and if I remember well with 80 too. I don't know how many other lines with articulated buses are there.

Among the many things voted at the last STIF council meeting, there is the "Grand Paris des bus" project. This is basically about buying 1000 buses for the suburban network from now to 2020, and it was part of the electoral promises of the current president of the region. This all is presented as a major rethink of the suburban network and it even has a website for public consultation, due to happen from Ovtober 5 to November 5: http://grand-paris-des-bus.fr/ The consultation for the Inner Paris network is already in progress (September 9 to November 30).

Construction begins on Paris tram-train extension
Tuesday, October 18, 2016



CONSTRUCTION of the extension of Paris tram-train line T4 to Montfermeil was officially launched on October 18 with a groundbreaking ceremony in Clichy-sous-Bois, which was attended by France’s minister for cities, youth affairs and sport Mr Patrick Kanner, Ile-de-France regional president Mrs Valérie Pécresse, president of the département of Seine-Saint-Denis Mr Stéphane Troussel, and Mr Alain Krakovitch, president of SNCF Transilien

The project involves constructing a 6.5km branch off the initial Bondy - Aulnay-sous-Bois section from a junction at Gargan. The branch will have 11 stations, including an interchange with the future Grand Paris Express metro Line 16 at Clichy-Montfermeil. Daily ridership is forecast to be around 37,000, and around 30% of journeys will be through trips from Line 16

here is a schematic from Wikipedia

This line will pass through some of the most economically depressed and transit-starved districts in suburban Paris.
