The Alstom and Bombardier consortium will design and manufacture the new generation of metros for Île-de-France Mobilités and the Paris Transport Administration (RATP).

The confirmed part of the contract covers the delivery of 44 trains for a sum of over $587 million, which may be supplemented by options exercised for a total of up to 410 trains.

Initially, the new trains will be deployed on three Paris metro lines and their entry into service will take place between 2024 and 2026. The options will then be used to equip five other lines.

Based on Alstom's and Bombardier’s steel-wheeled metro solutions, the new trains will benefit from the latest technological developments to increase comfort, availability, accessibility, and passenger information, as well as facilitate maintenance.

The first 44 trains will have a driver's cabin. Each train will be in "boa”2 configuration with modern passenger information systems, large bay windows, and themed 100% LED lighting. The trains will also offer a pleasant, safe travel experience, with a heating and air conditioning system, USB sockets for charging mobile devices, and video protection cameras throughout the entire train.

The environmentally friendly new metros will be eco-designed, with 20% recycled materials used in their production, making them 98% recoverable at the end of their lifespan. They will consume 20% less energy than the trains currently in service thanks to 100% electric braking and 100% LED lighting. These new trains will also make it possible to reduce maintenance costs by 15% compared to the MF01.
