Check out the map:
http://www.plandeparis.info/plans-de...definition.gif

The only at-grade lines are those that begin with a "T".
The RER lines A, B, C, D and E run at-grade, but are all underground within the intra-Paris.

So, there are 16 subway lines, 5 express suburban lines, 3 light-rail lines, plus all the suburban heavy-rail lines.
Hope this helps.

He is talking about the Tramlines.

The T2 terminus at La Defense is underground.

Renaissance and rebirth, in English essentially mean the same thing. Renaissance though conveys a much larger or grander image than rebirth, which seem to convey starting over from scratch.

Note that T6 will be a "tramway on tires".

I find this really strange, because there are many normal trams who already exist in Ile-de-France...

I wonder if people in Paris (responsible for choosing Translohr for T6 line) regret their choice?Because,as I read all informations about this mean of transport,there no new contracts for such systems and such vehicles;it's possible that transport authorities all over the world realized that isn't as excellent as they thought before (especially if they think about regio trams as complementation of city transport systems,like Paris' T4 line)

Is there any estimate of the journey time on the T6 end-to-end?
