RATP Scope


With RATP Scope, RATP has two aims: 1) to reveal the daily complexity involved with running the metro, RER, bus and tramway networks, and 2) to inform its customers about major incidents (interruptions of service lasting 2 hours or more), the causes of these incidents, and the means that are employed to resolve them.

This initiative is part of an educational effort aimed at the more than 10 million passengers who use the RATP networks every day. To this end, RATP Scope strives to be a meeting place and a source of dialogue between the company and its customers, using rich and varied information and multimedia content.



RATP Scope comprises two spaces:

- Three sections with complementary vocations

  • “Daily digest” provides an update on a given subject in 2 minutes, be it a past incident on the network or a glimpse at RATP initiatives in terms of sustainable development via computer graphics.
  • “Behind the scenes” reveals the inside story on RATP and its business lines via interviews and videos for a reading time of about 10 minutes.
  • “Wide angle” takes an in-depth look at a specific subject, with a reading time of 10 to 15 minutes.

This space is open for commentary.

- Visibility of Twitter accounts during major operating incidents

RATP Scope also provides real-time information about major operating incidents (interruption of service lasting 2 hours or more). The Twitter account of the network line affected by the incident will be directly viewable via a dedicated page on RATP Scope. This space is not open for commentary. 


Site monitoring

Commentary posted on this site is monitored, a priori, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

All commentary is screened before being posted online. Consequently, there could be a delay of several hours, or even up to 48 hours on weekends and holidays, before a commentary is posted online. Messages that do not respect the principles of Netiquette and/or do not conform to the terms of use will be systematically deleted.

By accessing and/or participating in the RATP Scope site, you acknowledge that all commentaries posted therein express only the views and opinions of their authors. The moderator, the site administrator and RATP cannot in consequence be held liable for their content.

Section "Summer construction work on the RER A"


To inform passengers about track replacement work on the RER A, RATP is proposing a section about the project on the Ratp.fr website.

Serving as a hub for all of the information throughout the duration of the renovation operation from 2015 to 2021, this section will acquaint passengers with the construction work being done, and will provide both the latest news on the project as well as alternative travel routes.
