Métro platform doors on Line 1

Between April 12 to June 15, 2010 and the hours 10 p.m. and approximately 5:30 a.m., service will be interrupted on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday between Châtelet and Nation.  Service will be normal on Friday and Saturday nights.

Use connections on other lines for Châtelet, Hôtel de Ville, Saint Paul, Bastille, Gare de Lyon, Reuilly-Diderot, and Nation.

The Bastille Line 1 station will be closed completely June 11-13.

RATP is installing automatic doors on the platforms. The line will be completely automatic, including no driver, by 2012. Take a ride on Line 14 as an example. Plans call for the entire Paris Métro system to be modernized by 2020.

Line 1 was the first Métro line to open to the public. Since July 19, 1900 the trains go back and forth between La Défense and La Château de Vincennes about 213 million times a year.

This Web site and and its blog articles are for travelers to Paris who are looking for advice from someone who lives in Paris. These tips are "for Parisians at heart". Many people would like to visit, some can and some cannot - so I will help you enjoy a glimpse of the city and its surroundings. This project has been ongoing since 2002. Prior to living in Paris (since 1992) my European history began in the early 70s with three years in Wiesbaden, Germany. My next foray onto the Continent was in the mid-80s after graduation from the University of Florida (where I met Erik): traveling around Europe and UK with my friend, Margie, hitchhiking around and working in Ireland. After living and working as a journalist in Sweden for four years, traveling on boats, the Trans-Siberian Railway, local trains and planes took Erik and I around the world. I began working as a flight attendant in 1990 for American Airlines, based in Chicago. We moved to Paris, France in 1992 where I commuted between Paris and Chicago for my flight attendant/stewardess job. Finally my inner voice said "Stop!" and I left American Airlines six weeks shy of 20 years January 1, 2010. Now that is over and I am back working as a journalist and photographer full time on Colleensparis.com - My videos are posted on YouTube on the colleensparis youtube channel. and I am active in Toastmasters 75. Enjoy!
