Passengers everywhere increasingly expect efficient, seamless journeys. In the Paris region, SNCF Transilien’s response is to revamp the service offer using a digital, multimodal approach that focuses on the customer. In an interview with Global Railway Review, Gilles Artese, Head of the High-Density-Zone Operations Engineering Department and Director of the NET/ORION Project at SNCF Transilien, discusses how integrated resource planning using HASTUS is key to this effort.

The rail industry is changing profoundly. SNCF has embarked on a huge organizational and technological transformation, and GIRO is proud to participate in this major endeavour with our partner Sopra Steria.”
