These lines will serve five territories where the service did not exist before.
On the outskirts of the outer suburbs, where there is often little public transport, “evening bus» take over from the usual lines. Wishing to offer quality transport services to the inhabitants of the outer suburbs in order to give them access to leisure activities in the Ile-de-France Mobilités (IDFM) has just announced the commissioning of eleven new lines. They will serve five territories where the service did not exist before. Enough to bring to 36 the number of these special lines throughout the region.
Concretely, depending on the time at which the last trains arrive, the buses wait for travelers at the station at the exit of the train. Once on board, they validate their p and indicate at which bus stop “served by the service» they wish to get off, allowing the driver «to adjust its itinerary according to the requests“. Thus, the driver can use a “route planner“, who will offer him the route “the most suitable“. In some cases, when it is very busy, it is “the normal route which will be preferred“.
“This service improves connections with the train, facilitates the last mile and makes returns safer“, we explain at IDFM on Tuesday, well aware of the difficulty of some inhabitants of the outer suburbs of getting around in the evening without a car. “Every evening“, these buses “waiting for travelers at the arrival of the trains at the station to pick them up and drop them off at the nearest line stop“. With the advantage that the departure times “correspond to the train arrival times from Paris“. And “if the train is late, the evening bus adapts and waits“, we underline at IDFM.
