A comprehensive express subway network, the Paris metro rer, was built to complement the Métro and serve the distant suburbs, while a network of freeways was developed in the suburbs, centred on the Périphérique expressway encircling the city as its shown in Paris metro rer map. The Paris metro rer is operated partly by the RATP, the city transport authority that operates the Métro, and partly by SNCF, the national rail operator; the differences are of little concern to riders during normal operations because of the seamless fare structure and absence of transfers needed at SNCF/RATP boundaries.
The Paris metro rer (Réseau Express Régional, French pronunciation: [ɛʁəɛʁ], "Regional Express Network") is a rapid transit system in France serving Paris and its suburbs. The Paris metro rer is an integration of a modern city-centre subway and a pre-existing set of regional rail lines as its mentioned in Paris metro rer map. Within the city of Paris, the Paris metro rer is as an express network with multiple connections with the Paris Métro. Since 1999 the network has consisted of five lines: A, B, C, D and E. The Paris metro rer is still expanding; Line E, which opened only in 1999, is a likely candidate for extension.
The origins of the Paris metro rer can be traced back to the 1936 Ruhlmann-Langewin plan of the Compagnie du chemin de fer métropolitain de Paris (Metropolitan Railway Company of Paris) for a wide-bodied "métropolitain express" (express metro) as you can see in Paris metro rer map. The CMP post-war successor, the RATP, revived the scheme in the 1950s, and in 1960 an interministerial committee decided to go ahead with construction of a first, east-west, line. As its instigator, the RATP was granted authority to run the new link and the SNCF ceded operation of the Saint-Germain-en-Laye line (to the west of Paris) and the Vincennes line (to the east).
