"My ambition is about ten night trains in 2030" organized around four major "corridors" (Bordeaux-Marseille, Dijon-Marseille, Tours-Lyon via Ile-de-France, and Paris-Toulouse ), said the Minister of Transport, Jean-Baptiste Djebbari, in an interview with Parisien on Sunday.

These proposals come from a report to parliamentarians on the night intercités which must be made public soon, says the newspaper. "With the ecological issues, the 'flygskam' (Swedish term which designates the shame of taking the plane, Editor's note) and the pandemic which is redesigning the way we travel, the night train has everything to seduce", indicates the minister by emphasizing that there are 28 lines in Austria. "In France, the development of the TGV has eaten up the night trains and the supply has deteriorated. This must be changed," he said.

"The night train has everything to seduce"

France currently has only two night train connections, against eight in 2015: Paris-Briançon (Hautes-Alpes) and Paris-La-Tour-de-Carol ( Eastern Pyrenees). The recovery plan, announced last September, provides for the relaunch of the Paris-Nice and Paris-Tarbes lines, with funding of 100 million euros, for the renovation of 50 cars by 2022. These two lines should open "in April and December 2021", specifies the minister.

The analysis by policy research firm Energy Innovation, published on Wednesday morning, examines two scenarios for reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Beyond 2022, "given the important works to be carried out on the network, it will be complicated to open many others until 2025", admits Jean-Baptiste Djebarri who is counting on funding within the framework of the European green deal to finance the rest of the lines.

The European Union has made the relaunch of night trains one of its priorities, with the signing at the end of 2020 of a cooperation agreement between the national railway companies of Germany, Austria, France and Switzerland. In this context, departing from France, a night Paris-Vienne should see the light of day in December 2021.
