Moreover, RATP will play a big role in contributing knowledge to the creation of new and update of existing standards.
Given the stakes for the RATP for the coming years, and especially in the context of competitive bidding, we were looking forward to joining the association ITxPT to keep our customers and suppliers informed, whether rolling stock or embedded hardware, about our commitment to innovation for the benefit of our travelers. The opportunity to work with all the actors of the association brings us a lot of possibilities strengthening us in the choices of innovation we already made several years ago.
