Régiolis, Alstom's regional train, has already covered one million kilometers (approximately 622,000 miles) less than one year after entering service back in April 2014. This symbolic milestone coincides with its entry into commercial service in the Pays-de-la-Loire region.

The Pays-de-la-Loire region has ordered 20 four-car train sets, each one 236-feet long with a total capacity of 218 seats. The train offers improved level of comfort thanks to individual reading lights and electrical power outlets, dedicated spaces for bicycles and luggage, large windows and reduced noise level within the passenger compartments, while its fully low-floor guarantees universal accessibility.

To date, 52 Régiolis trains have been delivered to nine French regions. Alstom's aftersales service teams have been working at customers’ sites to provide corrective maintenance services and ensure availability and reliability of the equipment.

Additional trains are scheduled to enter service in the PACA, Franche-Comté and Haute-Normandie regions during 2015.
