France launched low-cost train service

  • Published by Vedat

The French national rail operator SNCF is offering a new low-cost long-distance train service called Ouigo.

ouigoTrains depart from Marne-la-Vallée to the east of the French capital – almost 20 miles away from central Paris.

Services will connect Paris to Lyon, Marseille and Montpellier on the south coast, with tickets starting from €10/ £8.70.

As with the budget airlines, space will be tighter – there will be no first class section, nor will there be any café or bar. There will be room for around 20 per cent more passengers than on a regular TGV service.
