We want our TER offer to meet your every need—which is why our commitments focus on 3 priorities:
We offer intermodal, door-to-door solutions that make daily life easier.
Access to information
We aim for maximum reliability wherever you are.
Today nearly all of the TER fleet is new or renovated.
Public service contracts
The NOTRe1 Act of 2015 empowered France’s regional governments to organize, finance and set fares for public transport within their own jurisdiction.
TER works with them to design door-to-door solutions that offer easy, reliable, sustainable regional mobility for everyone, using the full range of transport options—trains, coaches, ride-sharing, biking and more.
