STIF leading innovation in Ile de France public transport

As the integrated public transport authority competent for all
modes of transport within the Ile-de-France Region, the STIF has
drawn up and released a specific document focusing on the
innovations that have been developed in the region recently.
Indeed, a series of innovative services have been designed and
implemented over the last months. They include:

  • a new way to travel by bus ”T Zen” that combines quality of service, comfort and design;

  • a brand new travel planner ”Vianavigo” as the reference site for public transport in Ile-de-France;
  • the urban renewal of the Île-de-France region through eight tramway lines due to be in service by 2015;
  • the ‘Navigo Card’ that simplifies travel in Ile-de-France;
  • the modernising of Ile-de-France stations to improve connections between the different means of transport;
  • ‘Véligo’ parking spots to support the daily use of bikes;
  • revised and more coherent Ile-de-France maps showing the services on offer from 74 transport companies in the region;
  • the testing of several models of hybrid buses in Ile-de-France in concert with the RATP;
  • the extensive train and RER rolling stock renovation and purchase program since 2006 to improve quality of service and passenger comfort;
  • the testing of NFC technology in public transport along with Véolia Transdev;
  • the future creation of three new public transport routes on the Seine river;
  • the adoption of a Charter for a sustainable territory within the framework of the extension of metro line 11;
  • and last but not least the development of the ‘Grand Paris Express’ project, tomorrow’s metro that will make travelling easier between Ile-de-France suburbs.
