DESCRIPTION
Paris metro opened in 1900. The whole metro system is currently articulated in 14 lines; Line 1 and Line 14 ("Meteor") are fully automated (driverless metro). Metro service is operated by steel-wheel ("MF" for materiel fer) and rubber-tyred trains ("MP", materiel pneu).

It was extended in 2003 (Madeleine-Saint Lazare) and 2007 (Bibliotheque F. Mitterrand-Olympiades). Line 14 has a crucial role to enlight the passengers charge on Line 1 and Line A in the central part of the network. Line 14 track starts at Olympiades (since 2007, with the opening of Bibliotheque F. Mitterand-Olympiades extension) in the southern part of the town, runs parallel to Line 1 and Line A from Gare de Lyon to Chatelet-les Halles, then it reaches St. Lazare terminal.
