Line 14 is the newest line on the Paris subway, which is frequently operated by fully autonomous driving, and their platforms are equipped with screen doors. A relatively short section was opened in advance – between “Saint-Lazare Station”, which is adjacent to to the terminal of suburban or intercity trains, and “Olympiades Station” in the 13th arrondissement of Paris. This time a 5.8km section was opened that was constructed northward from Saint-Lazare Station to Mary de Saint-Ouen Station connecting to Metro Line 13.

Along the way, there is 3 stations: “Pont Cardinet”, “Porte de Clichy” and “Saint-Ouen”. People can transfer to the Transilien Line L at Pont Cardine, the Metro Line 13 / Tramway Line 3b / RER Line C at Porte de Clichy, and the RER Line C at Saint-Ouen. However, as for Porte de Clichy station, the opening of the station for Line 14 is a little late to January 2021 (planned), and trains will pass until then.

Until now, many commuters from the Saint-Ouen area to Paris downtown used Line 13, and train congestion was a problem. The city of Paris hopes that the opening of Line 14, which connects Mairie de Saint-Ouen Station to the Châtelet Station in about 15 minutes, will reduce congestion on Line 13 by about 25%.

Line 14 will be further extended to Saint-Denis Pleyel Station in the north and Orly Airport in the south, with all lines scheduled to open by 2024.
