Sustainable Transportation: Equans to equip the new T Zen 4 electric BRT with Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
The Equans and Lumiplan consortium has just been selected by Île-de-France Mobilités (IDFM) to equip its future T Zen 4 electric bus network with an innovative NAVINEO CAD/AVL, real-time passenger information system and a voice radio infrastructure. This new all electric Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line will link Viry-Châtillon to Corbeil-Essonnes. The 9-mile line will provide users a more reliable, sustainable and better-quality transportation service.
T Zen 4, spearheading green and connected mobility
Carrying more than 26,000 users per day, the 402 line is now the busiest line in the greater Paris area. IDFM is replacing its more heavily travelled corridor with the T Zen 4 BRT line in hopes of improving its service offering and increasing capacity and intermodality of its urban transportation network.
The 30 vehicles on the new BRT line, to be opened in 2024, will each be able to carry up to 140 passengers, surpassing the 100 passenger limit on the current buses in service. The first 100% electric 78-foot buses in the Île-de-France region will also be more accessible for passengers with disabilities.
