The RATP bet on the Grand Paris Express

Slowly but surely, the number of visitors to subway and bus parisiens back. Now, it reaches 35% to 40%, according to the times of the day. Now that the bulk of the health crisis is past, the RATP can be projected on the records of the future. So she formed a consortium with the manufacturer of rolling stock, Alstom and the operator of singapore's subways, ComfortDelGro. The company RATP Dev, a 100% subsidiary of the RATP, the majority of the units aims to exploit the lines 16 and 17 of the Grand Paris Express and maintain the trains which will run. A sacred piece, because the line 16 is 27 km between Saint-Denis and Clichy-Montfermeil and the line 17 connects Saint-Denis in le Mesnil-Amelot, to be 26 km.

in Concrete terms, this grouping led by the RATP has filed a record on Thursday with the Île-de-France Mobility in the framework of the pre-qualification to tender for the operation of these two future lines.

The first sections are expected to open in 2024. The alliance with Alstom is a more weight: the French industrial, has been chosen to manufacture the rolling stock for lines 15, 16 and 17. Therefore, it would be easier for him to maintain it. The presence of ComfortDelGro in this consortium is most unexpected. "We partner with him because he is a king of the customer experience," says Laurence Battle, president of the executive board of RATP Dev. Active in seven countries, the singaporean operated buses in the United Kingdom, of the metro lines in Singapore, and taxis in Australia.

According to our information, several players have deposited a folder for this prequalification. Given its interest for the Grand Paris Express, Keolis is expected to be in the lot. On the other hand, Transdev will not be of the party. In particular, "because of the impact of the Covid," says the group.
