You meant TFS...

Good idea to integrate buses to this topic. The OmniCity definitly has the best look of the network.

It is not a new idea, Cosmin asked me about a Paris bus thread a long time ago.
At the beginning (before the creation of this thread) I wanted two seperates threads but viewing the low activity of this one, it was a better idea to integrate buses with the tram.

Omnicity are good looking but have a bad reputation.

TSF Tramway Standard Français, (standard French tram).
It is the tram that build Alstom before the Citadis.

No TSF is the name of a rolling stock (like Citadis for the tram or MF01 for the metro).
Only the T1 use them.

When juanico said "You meant TSF...", it is because I wrote TFS instead of TSF in the previous message.

Wrong, TFS stands for Tramway Français Standard (French Standard Tramway in english)as you said but it is also the name of a rolling stock and not TSF.

I'll give you an example from my city: Oporto

We have 6 colors:

blue for the city center
yellow for Matosinhos zone
green for Maia zone
red for Ermesinde and Valongo zone
purple for Gondomar zone
and orange for Gaia

For sure Paris has one color code

No there are color by lines but not by destination.
You will find lines of red, orange, bleu, red, brown, yellow ect... color that go in the center or that go anywhere else.

Where there is a code is for the line the number in inner Paris
The first number is for a central district

2X : Gare Saint-Lazare
3X : Gare de l'Est
4X : Gare du Nord
5X : République area
6X : Gare de Lyon / Gare d'Austerlitz area
7X : Hôtel de Ville / Châtelet area
8X : Left bank, around Luxembourg
9X : Gare Montparnasse

The second number is for a more peripheral areas of inner Paris.
X2 : South-west (16th arrondissement)
X3 : West (17th arrondissement)
X4 : North-west (17th arrondissement)
X5 : North and Nord-east (18th arrondissement and 19th arrondissement)
X6 : East (20th arrondissement and 12th arrondissement)
X7 : South East (13th arrondissement)
X8 : South (14th arrondissement)
X9 : South-west (15th arrondissement)

By exemple the line 28
Gare Saint Lazare (2) to Porte d'Orleans in the south (8)

Anyway this is not anymore really true as this code is very old and many lines have seen their route modified.

By exemple the line 66 do Clichy-la-Garenne (northwestern inner suburbs) to Opéra.
If we read the code the first (6) would be for the area around Gare de Lyon / Gare d'Austerlitz and the second (6) for the East of inner Paris.
But this line does not serve any of the these areas.

The lines with three digit numbers serve mostly the suburbs.

To make better the old number code, they should arrange some kind of other code. (f.e. colors )

No with the organisation of Paris bus system a color code would be a very bad idea.

Yes because there too many areas, so they would never be enough colours...

And as minato ku said, in paris there is a code with numbers only, its makes a lot of things much easier.
