Experts in sustainable mobility
RATP has an active environmental policy. It looks to innovation to improve its environmental performance and provide passengers in the Île-de-France region with transport solutions that are ever more respectful of the environment.
The RATP Group announced its new strategic direction in November 2015, that will guide its development over the coming years. One of its priorities is to become a major figure in the sustainable city, working with local elected representatives and institutions, and reconciling the expansion of its networks with improved environmental performance.
For RATP, only the creation of a complete mobility ecosystem, from door to door, built around a dense, high-performance transport network – one that provides an alternative to the car – will allow the creation of a sustainable mobility system to meet the needs of the passengers and communities it serves.
To build an integrated offering of full and sustainable mobility, RATP is delivering a variety of solutions:
- in complementary services:
- experimenting with the development of a daily car sharing service (with the start-up Sharette, from July to December 2015);
- special offers during the works on RER A over the summer of 2015, with, for example, the provision of a priority number to book at G7 taxi, together with a 15% reduction on “WeCab” offers;
- deployment with STIF, the Organising Authority for public transport in the Paris-Île-de-France region, of secure bike parks near stations, through its Promométro subsidiary, the leader in Île-de-France.
- in information:
- continually improving ‘itinerary finders’ for use on remote media (ratp.fr website, mobile apps, smartwatches), in order to provide personalised, contextualised and multi-modal itineraries. Thus, the RATP mobile app will be enhanced with new practical functionalities, like details of metro exits and the availability of escalators and lifts;
- as part of the door-to-door mobility approach Vélib data are already integrated in the itinerary finder; and Autolib data will soon follow.
- More than 1,200 secure spaces for bicycles in Île-de-France
- Display of CO2 emissions (g) of public transport compared to those from a car within the itinerary finder
