The Plaine Commune region already benefits from a busy transports network which should improve significantly from 2013 onwards, with the works scheduled by the Greater Paris project. The urban conglomeration is a true revolving network for public transports in Île-de-France.
The public transports service in the urban conglomeration is already exceptional and will benefit considerably with various new services and improvements (2013):
T3 Porte d'Ivry-Porte de la Chapelle
Ligne 12 Saint-Denis-Aubervilliers extended : station Place du Front Populaire
RER B+ : 1 omnibus train every 3 mins
RER D : 12 trains/hour (currently 8/hour)
RER C : improving the frequency of services
Many important construction sites – ongoing or about to begin – will progressively reinforce the available transports network on offer in the region. The outcome will allow for new services ensuring optimal transportation to key areas:
End 2014 Tramway T8 Saint-Denis-Épinay-sur-Seine-Villetaneuse.
2016 Métro Extension of line 14 to Mairie de Saint-Ouen, and longer term, to Pleyel. Prolongation of line 12, from the station Place du Front Populaire to Mairie d'Aubervilliers via the Stains bridge. Tramway T3, from Porte de la Chapelle to Porte d'Asnières.
2017 Tangentielle Nord, section Épinay-sur-Seine-Le Bourget.
Developed by the Société du Grand Paris and the Union for Transports in Île-de-France (STIF), the Grand Paris Express project will link, with the red line*:
In the north of the region : La Défense-Pleyel-La Courneuve-Le Bourget-Roissy CDG (red line)
In the south : Pleyel/RER D/RER B-Mairie d'Aubervilliers-Fort d'Aubervilliers (orange line).
5 stations of the Greater Paris have been planned for the region, as well as a high speed train station (TGV) in Pleyel.
Longer-term– 2020/2025 – with Pleyel, Plaine Commune will benefit from the main center for public transports in Île-de-France, open to Northern Europe.
