RATP Dev, a subsidiary of RATP Group that provides operations and maintenance of passenger transport services outside of the core RATP network in Paris, along with ComfortDelGro and Alstom have signed a partnership agreement for the purpose of submitting tenders for the Grand Paris Express project.
The aim, subject to administrative authorisations, is for the three parties to set up a joint venture to enable this goal. The three parties believe that together they cover all the important areas of expertise to offer a comprehensive transport solution. The Grand Paris Express is one of the largest transport projects in Europe. As a consortium the parties aim to submit tenders for the future metro lines 16 and 17.
Line 16 will be a 29km automatic metro line, crossing three departments in eastern Paris. It will connect ten stations from Saint-Denis Pleyel to Noisy-Champs in 27 minutes. Once operational, the expected daily ridership on the line is 200,000.
Line 17 will be a 27km automatic metro line that will be a major new transport axis for the north of the city. It will connect nine stations from Saint-Denis Pleyel to Le Mesnil-Amelot in 25 minutes. The expected daily ridership for this line is between 130,000 and 160,000.
