Leave the planning to us

Assistant SNCF already covers public and shared transport options in 500 cities across France. That’s 70% of the French population.

Available now. With the current version of Assistant, you can:

  • map out your itinerary from address to address
  • check train timetables
  • receive real-time traffic updates
  • get solutions when traffic is disrupted
  • save your routes of choice as favourites
  • stay informed of upcoming departures from your stations and stops
  • buy TER tickets
  • book and pay for a car with driver or a scooter taxi

Coming soon. By the end of 2019, you’ll be able to book and pay for light rail, bus and metro journeys as well—right in the app.


We need to offer a solution that takes our customers from point A to point B as seamlessly as a car. That’s our goal for Assistant SNCF.

Validate your ticket with NFC—even when your phone is off
