Line 14 was also known as Météor (MÉTro Est-Ouest Rapide) during its recent construction. Originally planned to open in 1998 for the World Cup, it did open in 1998 - but in October. It is the most modern line on the network, and possibly the most technologically advanced in Europe. All MP89-stock trains are totally automatic, and no staff is needed anywhere on the train or on the platforms. The architecture on this line is also stunning.
