Testing the autonomous shuttle

From 24 January, between 2pm and 8pm, RATP in partnership with STIF, the Organising Authority for public transport in the Paris-Île-de-France region, and the City of Paris, offers you the opportunity to cross Pont Charles de Gaulle, between Gare de Lyon and Gare d’Austerlitz, in a driverless shuttle. There will be a customer host on board to ensure your safety and comfort.

RATP at the heart of innovation


Vign_navetteRATP's ambition is to offer innovative urban mobility solutions adapted to each area. From the RER to car sharing, from the metro to electric buses, RATP wants to be active across the whole transport chain in order to encourage the use of public transport, including in less densely populated areas.

Autonomous vehicles provide an opportunity to complete the current mobility offering, creating solutions for mobility needs that are not yet covered (sparsely populated areas, low volumes, first and last kilometres, etc.). Autonomous vehicles also offer adaptability and flexibility, thus helping to match supply and demand.
Other test sites are already being planned in conjunction with STIF, the Organising Authority for public transport in the Paris-Île-de-France region, and the City of Paris, for the coming months.

The aim of these tests is to gather information on performance, reliability, vehicle limits, supervision, safety of operations, cyber-security and the scope of application of the services that could be developed.

EZ10, a prototype self-driving shuttle


The trial will offer passengers a chance to discover the on-board experience of the EZ10 driverless shuttle developed by EasyMile.

This autonomous electric vehicle is accessible to people with reduced mobility and has been designed to cover short, pre-defined routes.

Le Groupe RATP annonce le lancement d’expérimentations ouvertes au public en province et à l’international


Dans la lignée de l’expérimentation en cours à Paris, qui connaît un véritable succès avec déjà plus de 20 000 voyageurs, le Groupe RATP annonce le lancement d’expérimentations ouvertes au public en province et à l’international.

South by Southwest (SXSW) est devenu un véritable phénomène aux États-Unis, où la technologie côtoie la musique et le cinéma. RATP Dev (filialie du Groupe RATP) et Capital Metro, viennent de proposer propose aux festivaliers de venir tester une navette autonome sur le campus de l’université du Texas à Austin.

Ainsi, jeudi 16 et vendredi 17 mars 2017, tout au long de la journée, la navette 100 % électrique, a effectué un trajet prédéterminé sur un circuit fermé, aux abords du Sid Richardson Hall, en présence des médias et du grand public.

En France, en région, la CTB, qui exploite le réseau Marinéo à Boulogne sur-Mer, en partenariat avec la Ville de Boulogne-sur-Mer et la Communauté d’agglomération du Boulonnais, testera une navette autonome du mercredi 5 avril au dimanche 8 mai 2017. La navette autonome circulera sur le Quai des

Paquebots, selon un itinéraire prédéfini de 300 mètres. La desserte sera en service du mercredi au dimanche, de 11h30 à 18H30 et pourra être empruntée gratuitement.

Au cours de l’année 2017, d’autres expérimentations vont être lancées en Ile-de-France :


La RATP prévoit une desserte interne du site du CEA de Saclay au mois de main, et travaille, avec le STIF et la Ville de Paris, à une expérimentation entre le Château de Vincennes et le Parc floral du bois de Vincennes, pour l’été.

Real-time information on your mobile phone

To facilitate your travel planning, you now have three information channels at your disposal, depending on your mobile phone’s specifications: SMS *, QR code, or NFC.

LED lighting for RATP metro and RER stations

The conventional light bulbs in 368 RATP metro and RER stations are being replaced by LEDs. Entirely financed by RATP, the 3-year programme will extend through early 2016 and will affect all metro and RER passenger areas.

Keeping passengers informed in real time

How long until my next bus? And until the one after? Have I got time to buy a newspaper before my tram? Is traffic on my line fluid or disrupted? In equipped metro stations, new screens now display waiting times for connecting buses and trams and will soon include traffic info. This allows you to choose what to do depending on how much time you have available.
