Paris-based public transport operator RATP Group has become a member of the Corporate Partnership Board of the International Transport Forum (ITF).
The RATP Group is the world’s fifth largest public transport operator with more than 14 million passengers every day. The group is engaged in all modes of public transport: metro, rail, tramway and bus. It operates, maintains, modernises and develops one of the world’s densest multimodal networks, which serves 11 million people over 12 000 km2 in Paris and surrounding areas and operates more than 3 billion trips per year.
