16 Mar 2017

FRANCE: SNCF’s stations subsidiary Gares & Connexions and Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Senseable City Lab multi-disciplinary urban environment research group have signed an agreement to work together to improve waiting conditions at stations.

The aim is to ‘improve the thermal comfort, acoustic, visual and other characteristics of stations in France’, according to Patrick Ropert, General Manager of SNCF Gares & Connexions.

Experiments will be carried out at Paris Nord, Lille Europe and Aix-en-Provence TGV stations
