Paris STIF approves €787m budget

Paris STIF approves €787m budget :During 2014, RATP will invest €1,606 million in its Ile-de-France network, in accordance with the contract agreed with STIF in March 2012

Pierre Mongin, Chairman and CEO welcomed this “highly ambitious level of investment, which will allow us, thanks to STIF’s support, to continue to make significant efforts in renewing equipment and improving the service provided to passengers in Ile-de-France.

RATP’s Board of Directors, meeting on 29 November 2013 under the chairmanship of Pierre Mongin, RATP’s Chairman and CEO, unanimously approved the investment budget of €1,606 million in 2014, an increase of €45 million on 2013.

The contract between STIF and RATP for 2012 to 2015 calls for total investment of €6.5 billion over 5 years, or some €1.6 billion per year. This is significantly higher than in recent years and will allow RATP to carry out major programmes to renew rolling stock and maintain infrastructure whilst at the same time modernising a substantial portion of the RATP transport network.

Most notably in 2014, €277 million will be devoted to extending the RATP network. More than 20km of new tramway will come into service with the creation of the T6 and T8 routes, making it much easier to move from one part of outer Paris to another. This will take RATP’s tram network to nearly 100km, and it will become the third most well-used tram system in Europe, behind the long-established networks of Prague and Budapest.

Investment in 2014 will be distributed as follows:
