This symbolic milestone coincides with its entry into commercial service in the Pays-de-la-Loire region.

The Pays-de-la-Loire region has ordered 20 four-car train sets, each one 72 metres long with a total capacity of 218 seats. The train offers improved level of comfort thanks to individual reading lights and electrical power outlets, dedicated spaces for bicycles and luggage, large windows and reduced noise level within the passenger compartments. Its fully low floor guarantees universal accessibility. Régiolis is the first train to meet the requirements of the European TSI-PRM[1]. Half of the trains are also fitted with automatic metering devices. These provide improved monitoring of train use and occupation rates, thus optimising operations.

“This first million kilometres represents a great success, proving the reliability of our train and the excellent cooperation between the SNCF and Alstom teams. Comfort is our priority and Régiolis has demonstrated that it is perfectly adapted both to daily and long distance journeys”, says Ana Giros-Calpe, SVP Alstom Transport France.

To date, 52 Régiolis trains have been delivered to nine French regions[2]. Alstom's aftersales service teams have been working at customers’ sites to provide corrective maintenance services and ensure availability and reliability of the equipment. Additional trains are scheduled to enter service in the PACA, Franche-Comté and Haute-Normandie regions during 2015.

Régiolis is part of Alstom's Coradia range of trains. Thanks to its modular architecture it can be easily adapted to the individual requirements of each organising authority, as well as to the various types of use: peri-urban, regional and inter-city. It provides optimal comfort for passengers, regardless of the length of the journey.

The production of Régiolis trains has created more than 4,000 jobs across France, both for Alstom and its suppliers. Six of Alstom's twelve sites in France are involved in the project: Reichshoffen for the design and assembly, Ornans for the motors, Le Creusot for the bogies, Tarbes for the traction systems, Villeurbanne for the on-board computer systems and Saint-Ouen for the design.
