SNCF ATTACKS PARIS AREA REVENUE COLLECTION PROBLEMS

Heavy suburban passenger flows in greater Paris present difficult ticket control problems, with complex ticketing rendering effective manual inspection impossible. With the Interconnexion project with the Paris Regional Transit (RATP) to become operational in 1981-82, the French National Railways has been faced with introduction of a compatible automatic fare collection system. Starting in 1979 a full-scale experiment has been under way on Montparnasse suburban lines with the goal of extending it or a similar system to most of the Paris suburban area by the late 1980s.
