Here is the Paris 2024 venue plan:

http://www.paris2024.org/en/content/venue-plan

I've tried to overlay it on the Grand Paris Express map:

It will bring:

  • a fast connection to the airports.
  • a fast connection inside the « Grand Paris zone ».
  • a new big station: Saint-Denis-Pleyel. This station may also be a TGV (High Speed Train) station => direct access to stade de France: about 2H from London, 1H20 from Bruxelles, 1H from Lille...

It can also be noticed several new tramway lines (orange dashed lines). They will help to connect some venues:

  • hockey (20): tramway T1 line from Colombes Station to Colombes stadium (1 km)
  • venues near the media village: tramway « tangentielle Nord » connected to Le Bourget Station (1.5 km)
  • Equestrian Sports (23): tramway « tangentielle Ouest » connected to RER C (2 km)(an alternative solution is a walk across Versailles gardens)
  • the olympic tramway that should link all of the venues on the right bank of the river Seine. (the existing RER C line follows the left bank of the river Seine)

The green line shouldn't be ready for 2024 (planed for 2030).
Thus, the golf venue (27) will not be reacheable by rail.
Another venue is not reacheable by rail: Mountain bike (26).
They should be the only 2 venues that will not be directly accessible by rail (about 5 km from Saint-Quentin station).
On the other hand, it is not a problem for Equestrian sports (23), track cycling (24) and BMX (25). 3 existing lines are available:
- line N from Gare Montparnasse to Saint-Quentin: 25 min
- line U from La défense to Saint-Quentin: 32 min
- RER C: This line crosses the « PARIS CENTRE zone » and continues to Saint-Quentin (for exemple Eiffel Tower to Saint-Quentin: 35 min)

Neat plan. But might need more boat transportation

Sailing does not have to take place in Marseille then.

Grand Paris Express will be a major point to monitor in the coming years. The most useful corridors for the Games are currently scheduled to open for service in 2024. These last few years, subway construction projects in Paris have experienced delays and I cannot think of one which was delivered on schedule.

It has been announced today that the construction of line 15, the only Grand Paris Express metro line in construction as of today, is delayed with opening in 2024.

Given that all the other lines of the Grand Paris Express are not yet in construction, it can be easily deduced that no new metro line will be available at the time of the Olympic Games.

Le calendrier du Grand Paris Express ne sera pas respecté

So you can forget about the fast connection to the Airports that Grand Paris Express was supposed to bring.

There's still the RER B for rail transit into Paris. That should be good enough since there will be no more visitors to Paris during the Olympics than there are tourists in any other summer.
