Chronology[edit]

Geographically accurate path of Paris Métro Line 7bis.
  • 18 January 1911: The section between Louis Blanc and Pré-Saint-Gervais was opened as a branch of Line 7.
  • 1967 : Because of a lack of traffic, the branch became a separate line known as line 7bis.

Tourism[edit]

Métro Line 7bis serves the Parc des Buttes Chaumont.

Future[edit]

The merger of line 3bis and line 7bis, connected through an existing rail tunnel and allowing the opening of a closed station (Haxo), is being studied. The line 7 bis would be extended one station west to have its terminus at Château-Landon. The resulting line from Château-Landon to Gambetta would become a new line and be put in operation between 2013 and 2020.
