Less well alongside the TGV Train the Regional Express, Intercity trains are designed to connect cities together. A report submitted Tuesday to the Government advocates an overhaul of the network. Maligned and older, it is nevertheless very useful to 100,000 travelers who use it daily. Commissioned by the Ministry of Transport and written by MP (PS) Philippe Duron, this document nevertheless considers that many of these rail links are no longer adapted to the transport conditions and lifestyles of today.

What about the Paris-Belfort line?

The report by MEP Philippe Duron provides a thorough reform of the Intercity trains. Line 4 Paris – Troyes – Belfort would be maintained but the frequency would increase from 13-7 to Troyes and only 2 to 4 Belfort
