New night bus services in Paris Ile de France region

In order to better match the growing
mobility needs in night time, the network of
night buses in Paris and Ile de France region
has been restructured and reinforced in
September.

Provision of services has been
doubled compared to the before situation.
They are now run under the same name
‘Noctilien’ and are operated by RATP and
SNCF, companies in charge of rail and metro
services in Ile de France and co-ordinated by
STIF, the regional transport authority.

The
network consists of 35 lines serving 1,950
stops, operating from 0h30 to 5h30, every
night, with enhanced services during weekends,
with for instance an interval of 10
minutes in 2 circle lines of Paris.

All buses
are equipped with CCTV, offering a high
level of security to the passengers. €5 million
have been invested for this new service.

The
yearly operation costs amount to €16 million
for an expected patronage of about 8 million
passengers.
