Alstom and Bombardier celebrate with STIF and RATP that the 100th MI09 duplex train has been delivered to Line A of the RER network in Paris. The delivery is part of a contract awarded to the Alstom-Bombardier consortium in 2009. In February 2015, STIF ordered an extra 10 trains.

Alstom and Bombardier MI09 Trains

Every MI09 can transport up to 2,600 passengers at a maximum speed of 120km/h. Each train is 110 metres long and is made up of five cars. The MI09 has a highly efficient electrical breaking system that reduces the energy consumption of the trains. A Wi-Fi link between the train and the ground ensures the transmutation of the operational parameters, allowing for reliable maintenance operations and reliable service.
