Paris Métro Line 13 is one of 16 metro lines built in Paris, France. The line links Saint-Denis and Gennevilliers in the northern suburbs of Paris to Châtillon in the south. It is the fifth busiest line on the netwok. The oldest parts of the line, like Line 12, were initially built by the "Nord-Sud" company, a former competitor of the CMP company (which later became the RATP).


*February 26, 1911: Line B of the Nord-Sud company was opened from Saint-Lazare to Porte de Saint-Ouen.
*January 20, 1912: A second branch of Line B was opened between La Fourche and Porte de Clichy.
*1930: The Nord-Sud company was bought by the CMP company. Line B became Line 13, and the Nord-Sud's planned future Line C was assigned the number 14.
*January 21, 1937: The original Line 14 was opened between Bienvenüe and Porte de Vanves.
*July 27, 1937: Line 14 was extended north from Bienvenüe to Duroc and took over the section between Duroc and Invalides from Line 10.
*June 30, 1952: Line 13 was extended north from Porte de Saint-Ouen to Carrefour Pleyel.
*June 27, 1973: The line was extended south from Saint-Lazare to Miromesnil.
*February 18, 1975: The line was extended south from Miromesnil to Champs-Elysées - Clémenceau.
*May 26, 1976: The line was extended north from Carrefour Pleyel to Saint-Denis - Basilique.
*November 9, 1976: The line was extended from Champs-Elysées to Invalides. Line 14 was eliminated as a separate line (leaving its number available to be reused in 1998) and incorporated into Line 13. The line was extended south from Porte de Vanves to Châtillon - Montrouge.
*May 9, 1980: The northwestern branch of the line was extended from Porte de Clichy to Asnières - Gennevilliers.
*May 25, 1998: The northern branch was extended from Basilique de Saint-Denis to Saint-Denis - Université.
*June 14, 2008: The northwestern branch was extended from Gabriel Péri to Les Courtilles.


After the northwestern branch was extended by 1.88 km with two more stations, Les Agnettes and Les Courtilles, a further extension with a third station (Port de Gennevilliers) will be added later.

Line 13 is one of the most crowded of the Parisian network. Various solutions have been investigated, from making a branch independent (a 13bis line), to extend ligne 14 to a branch to take it over, passing by extending line 14 to Porte de Clichy and Mairie de Saint-Ouen [ [ 20minutes : Comment soulager la ligne 13] ]


The trains on Line 13 are currently being refurbished, and the first refitted train entered service in January 2007.

The capacity of each train is increased by 26. [cite web| url=| format=PDF| title=Le MF 77 Rénové sur la ligne 13| language=French| publisher=RATP| date=2007-01-17| accessdate=2007-11-23| ]
