Alstom, the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region and SNCF inaugurated the first Regiolis trainset destined for the outskirts of Clermont-Ferrand in the presence of Laurent Wauquiez, President of the Regional Council of Auvergne Rhône-Alpes, Jean-Christophe Archambault, SNCF regional director for Auvergne Rhône-Alpes and Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, President of Alstom France.

The region of Auvergne Rhône-Alpes ordered 29 Regiolis trains, including 12 dual mode, dual voltage trains destined for lines on the periphery of Clermont-Ferrand and the Clermont-Lyon line. 72 metres long, the trains consist of 4 cars with a total capacity of 220 seats. They offer increased comfort thanks to seats equipped with individual reading lights, electric sockets and raisable footrests, spaces dedicated to bicycles and luggage, large bay windows and reduced noise levels. The integral low floor ensures accessibility for all; Regiolis is the first train to conform to the PRM-TSI standard. The Regiolis trains for the periphery of Clermont-Ferrand also have an automatic passenger counting system to enable better monitoring of the number of passengers and train occupancy for optimised operation. An economic and ecological driving assistance system is also incorporated.

[quote font_size=”16″ arrow=”yes”]”The inhabitants of Clermont-Ferrand will benefit from new trains that are accessible, comfortable, and very reliable. 173 Regiolis are already in circulation in 8 French regions and have travelled over 18 thousand kilometres, attesting to the reliability of our train and the excellent cooperation between the teams of SNCF and Alstom,” [/quote]said Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud.

Regiolis belongs to Alstom’s Coradia range of trains. Thanks to its modular design, it can be adapted to the needs of each organising authority as well as to different types of use: suburban, regional and intercity. Equipped with ERTMS technology, Regiolis is the first French regional train to comply with all European standards. 17 Regiolis are also scheduled to run between France and Switzerland on the Leman Express line by 2019.

The manufacture of Coradia Polyvalent mobilises over 4,000 jobs in France with Alstom and its suppliers. Six of Alstom’s twelve sites in France design and manufacture these trains: Reichshoffen for the design and assembly, Ornans for the motors, Le Creusot for the bogies, Tarbes for the traction, Villeurbanne for the onboard electronics and Saint-Ouen for the design.
