Got questions about SNCF? We’re making our answers more complete than ever—and now you can see the facts and judge for yourself. Our new, ambitious transparency policy begins with one simple act: releasing our data to the public. SNCF reports, key figures, internal documents and government correspondence are just a few clicks away.

Our transparency

Want to know more about SNCF? Now you can browse our on-time performance data, fares and employment statistics. We publish detailed reports and internal data, plus research and data visualization tools to guide you through them. At SNCF, we’re committed to releasing our corporate data to as many people as possible—and as a state-owned company, we’ve got a stronger stake in France’s culture and national identity than just about anyone else. Which makes transparency a natural choice for us.

In the interest of safety and privacy, we’ll continue to protect personal data and any information that could compromise safety or market competition. The rest is all yours.

Operating data

Every day, we carry 10 million passengers. To meet this challenge, we generate and analyse a huge quantity of data—timetables, station-based equipment and services, on-time performance, lines and connections, accessibility, and more. By opening up our data for all to use, we’re stepping up the pace of innovation—for mobility that’s more seamless, more personalized and better informed than ever.

Government correspondence

As part of our public service mission, we communicate regularly with elected officials in the French Parliament and in regions, cities and towns around the country. By making their correspondence with SNCF management available on line, we’re contributing to transparency in government.
