I wondered when the tramways of Paris would feature. Most of them seem to have been opened since I was last in the city!

In the inner city there is enouth lines but not in suburbs, unfortunely in some case they build tram instead of metro because it is cheaper.

So, according to you, trams are bad?
But it's a pity there aren't tram lines is Paris' inner city.

And according to a map of the RATP network, it seems like the tram lines only serve to connect terminuses of metro lines with each other.

Which line runs near Plaza d'Italie?

I was in Paris at the beginning of this year and saw a tram come through near my hotel, but unfortunately didn't have time to do any exploring.

I didn't have much time in Paris at all - managed to see the Eiffel, Arc and Moulin Rouge. Would love to go back soon!

Actually no tram run at Place d'Italie
In an other way there is a tram in Porte d'Italie (not so far at about 1.5 km of Place d'Italie following the Avenue d'Italie)

Porte de Choisy one stop after Porte d'Italie

Hey, I was wondering when (if) you're going to open a thread about trams, Minato ku.

T3 is awesome from what I can see. Last time I was in Paris only T1 and T2 were built, but on September 2 I'll be back in Paris and I wanna take some time to visit (if that makes any sense to you) T3. Even though the area is of little touristic value, I wanna see it. I know I'll not resist the temptation to take a stroll in the Biblioteque Fr. Mitterand-Bercy area so I might as well take the T3 from Porte d'Ivry which is not far away.

Btw, are there plans to extend the T3 line West or East over the Seine? For example connecting it to M8, M14, RER C and RER D by extending it to the East?

Looks like a very good tool by the RATP. What I like is that they've included all RATP and SNCF-managed lines, including the entire Transilien, OrlyVal, Tram lines, the new CDGVAL, and even the new Voguéo.

Just to clarify, SNCF is the other company, I believe Translinien is their branding.

Transillien is just the name of the suburban train service of the SNCF in Paris metro area.
It is a branding like TGV, Corail or TER.

T4 is a old suburban train line that was converted in the Tram Train line.

T2 is also in an old suburban line (Moulineaux line), RATP transformed it in a tramway line.

The last day of the Moulineaux line in 1993 (see the third rail like most suburban line before the 1970's)

They are double ended, like nearly all new tramway systems.

The situation will soon change with the extention of T2 at Porte de Versailles (T3)
And even then, the tracks of the two lines will not be connected because the T2 uses trams 2.40 m wide, the T3, 2.65 m wide.

When I say connected it is not necessary sharing the same tracks but having a common station. (exactly like the metro or RER)
