The Alstom and Bombardier consortium has been awarded the contract to design and manufacture the new generation of metros for Île-de-France Mobilités and the Paris Transport Administration (RATP).
The confirmed part of the contract covers the delivery of 44 trains for a sum of over 530 million euro. This may be supplemented by options exercise for a total of up to 410 trains.
Initially, the new trains will be deployed on three Paris metro lines (3bis, 7bis and 10) and their entry into service will take place between 2024 and 2026. The options will then be used to equip five other lines (13, 12, 3, 8 and 7).
Based on Alstom's and Bombardier’s steel-wheeled metro solutions, the new trains will benefit from the latest technological developments to increase comfort, availability, accessibility and passenger information, as well as facilitate maintenance.
