The schematic diagram on the proposed route and the three stations – Les Rigollots, Grands Pêchers and Val de Fontenay – was submitted to Île-de-France Mobilités in July 2018. Further studies are underway.
Départements 93 and 94
Connections with the RER E and A
Future connections with M15 and extended T1
- Addresses the area’s transport needs by providing more effective, direct service between Fontenay-sous-Bois, Montreuil, Vincennes and Paris.
- Creates connections with the existing public transport network (RER A and E) as well as with future lines: the T1 extension and the eastern M15.
After line automation in 2012, the M1 became one of the Paris metro’s most modern lines.
- More regular, reliable service, thanks notably to platform-edge doors.
- Shorter intervals between trains: 1 train every 1 minute and 45 seconds, during peak hours.
- Travel time between Château de Vincennes and Val de Fontenay: 6 to 7 minutes.
The M1 extension is designed in conjunction with other urban development projects in Vincennes, Montreuil and Fontenay-sous-Bois.
The proposed extension fits within the existing urban fabric while taking into account future developments, notably the eastern M15 and tramway T1 extension.
