Alstom showcased its first new-generation regional train, Régiolis, destined for the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (PACA) region during an inaugural voyage between Marseille and Arles in the presence of Michel Vauzelle, President of the Regional Authority, Philippe Bru, Regional Director of SNCF and Jacques Beltran, Vice President Sales and Marketing of Alstom Transport France.

The PACA regional authority has ordered 10 train sets to boost its transport service by offering exceptional comfort on regional lines. Since December 2014, regional SNCF personnel have received training on the new train to prepare for its entry into commercial service on the Marseille-Avignon line in April 2015. The Régiolis trains will then run on the Avignon-Carpentras line.

72 metres long, the PACA Régiolis trains comprise four passenger cars with a seating capacity for 214 people. The interior offers a high level of comfort, with seats featuring individual reading lights and power sockets, bicycle and baggage storage spaces. The quality of the travelling experience is also enhanced by large windows and reduced noise levels. The low-level flooring throughout ensures universal accessibility. Régiolis is the first train to meet the new STI PMR1 standard.

The cars features automatic passenger counters, enabling operators to better monitor train occupancy and usage, and thereby optimise their operations. The hybrid electrical and combustion engine enables extensive operational flexibility, as the train can be operated on both electrified and non-electrified tracks.

Régiolis is part of Alstom's Coradia range of trains. With its modular architecture it can be easily adapted to the individual requirements of each operating authority, as well as to the various types of use: suburban, regional and inter-city routes. It is available in three lengths (56, 72 or 110 metres) and offers optimal passenger comfort, whatever the length of the journey. Régiolis is exceptionally energy-efficient and its maintenance costs are low, making it both eco-friendly and economic. Last but not least, it offers universal accessibility with its low flooring throughout, designed to be the same height as the platform.

To date, 184 Régiolis trains have been ordered by twelve French regional authorities and 56 trains have been delivered to nine French regions. Less than one year after being brought into service in 2014, Régiolis has already travelled a million kilometres. Additional trains are scheduled to enter service in 2015 in the Franche-Comté and Haute Normandie regions.

The production of Régiolis trains has created more than 4,000 jobs across France, both for Alstom and its suppliers. Six of Alstom's 12 sites in France are involved in the project: Reichshoffen for engineering and assembly, Ornans for the engines, Le Creusot for the bogies, Tarbes for the traction drives, Villeurbanne for the on-board computer systems and Saint-Ouen for the styling.
