This order, valued at 132m euros (156.64m USD), is fully funded by Île-de-France Mobilités and falls within the framework of the MP14 contract signed in March 2015 between RATP and Alstom.

This was for the delivery of a maximum of 217 MP14 trains over 15 years, for a total of over 2bn euros (2.37bn USD), which is part of Île-de-France Mobilités’ strategy for the modernisation of all rolling stock on its network.

An initial tranche of the MP14 contract included 35 automated metros for line 14, consisting of eight cars each. A first conditional tranche for 20 additional automated metros, consisting of six cars each, was exercised in January 2017 for line 4.

A second option of 20 additional five-car trains (with driver’s cabs) was exercised in February 2018 for line 11.

Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, President of Alstom France, said:

“With the first MP14 trains entering commercial service in October 2020 on line 14, Alstom is delighted to have received an additional order for these innovative trains. The progressive arrival of MP14 metros on lines 14, 11, and 4 (in that order) will directly improve the daily lives of hundreds of thousands of passengers in Paris and the Île-de-France region.”
