Alstom and Transdev have launched the implementation of a contract under which Alstom will supply 16 eight-car trains for the Marseille-Toulon-Nice line, which Transdev will operate from mid-2025 onwards.

Alstom, which will manufacture the rolling stock at its Crespin site, will begin delivering the units at the end of 2024.

Olivier Delecroix, Sales Director, Alstom France, who was at the launch, said:

“We are proud to participate in the implementation of the first concession of a French regional line with Transdev. We are offering a proven, comfortable train, capable of running at 200 km/h, in order to serve the mobility of all passengers. We will also provide maintenance support and thus contribute to the long-term operational efficiency of the trains. These new trainsets will replace the current Corail cars and will be added to the many Alstom trains already running in the Southern Region.”

The rolling stock that will operate on the line will be Alstom’s Omneo Premium trains, which have already been ordered by ten French regions).

Each 352 capacity train will have twelve bicycle spaces. The trains will have alternating single and double-decker cars.
