Alstom will supply 20 MP14 metros, consisting of six cars each, to France’s STIF and RATP as part of the automation and modernization of line 4, the second most frequented line of the Paris metro.

The option exercised is part of the MP14 framework contract signed in March 2015 between the RATP (mandated by the STIF and the SGP) and Alstom concerning the delivery of up to 217 MP14 trains over 15 years.

Due to circulate on line 4, the MP14 trains will help to increase the capacity and quality of transport on the line, with a targeted global service equivalent to that of line 1. The MP14 trains, whose design and passenger comfort levels have been completely revised, enable full passenger circulation without separations between the cars and have been fitted with air conditioning and audio-visual information for passengers.

The material represents a 20% reduction in energy consumption compared to the previous generation. It offers unprecedented levels of comfort and security thanks to new ergonomic seats, LED lighting, fluidity of exchanges, information on board, and video protection. Its 100% electric braking system recovers energy and reinjects it into the grid in the form of electricity, thus limiting the emission of fine particles emitted by the brake pads.
