In September 2014, The Original Tour became part of RATP Dev, the RATP Group subsidiary established in 2002 to export the group’s operations and maintenance know-how outside the historical network operated by RATP in the Paris region.
With sixteen million passengers every day worldwide, RATP Group is one of the leading urban transport operators in the world. The multi-modal network operated by RATP in the Paris region, with its 14 metro lines (including two driverless lines), 2 regional express network (RER) lines, 5 tramway lines, 350 bus lines and shuttle services catering to the region's two international airports, is the largest of its kind in the world to be managed by a single company.
RATP Group devises, designs and implements infrastructure development projects, operating and maintaining networks irrespective of the transport mode (metro, regional train, tramway and bus) and develops innovative services to promote mobility such as passenger information, electronic ticketing, pricing and customer marketing. The automation of Paris metro's Line 1, which was completed at the end of 2012, is a world first and once again demonstrated the ability of RATP Group to complete particularly complex projects.
RATP Group exports its know-how all over the world via its Systra subsidiary (of which it owns 42%) in engineering, through its wholly-owned RATP Dev subsidiary in operations and maintenance and through its RATP Smart Systems subsidiary for innovative services promoting mobility.
As a widely-hailed expert in infrastructure management and engineering, RATP Group also fields a broad range of urban services through its in real estate management and engineering, operating retail facilities, fibre-optic technologies, customized passenger information and innovative ticketing solutions.
RATP Dev is present in fourteen countries on four continents (United Kingdom, France, Italy, Switzerland, Algeria, Morocco, South Africa, The United-States of America, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, The Philippines, India, China and South Korea).
RATP Group has a workforce of nearly 63,000 worldwide and in 2014 generated revenue of €5.26 billion.
