The purpose of this study is to evaluate the operating situation of SNCF’s Atlantic Axis lines and to propose improvement measures.
On 1 July 2017, a new traffic plan – lines and timetables – was put into service on the Atlantic coast of the French rail network. The first six months of operation revealed that the regularity objectives were not achieved. As a result, SNCF Mobilités commissioned the SMA consulting firm and EPFL to carry out a two-phase mission. The first is to analyze the main initial causes of delays and their spread. The second aims to propose levers enabling a significant reduction in the number and amplitude of delays and to further develop the actions that SNCF Mobilités can undertake internally.
This project has a duration of 4 months and will be conducted at EPFL by Daniel Emery of the Transport and Mobility Laboratory.
