Paris 2024 and Île-de-France Mobilités announce their collaboration on the transport offer for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024

Paris 2024 and Île-de-France Mobilités announce their collaboration on the transport offer for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024

On Wednesday 8 June, representatives of Paris 2024 and Île-de-France Mobilités were present at the Salon européen de la mobilité (European Mobility Expo) to officially unveil their collaboration for the transport of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024.

Île-de-France Mobilités – an essential collaborator for transport during the Games

The majority of events for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024 will be held in Île-de-France. It will involve the flow of huge numbers of spectators and accredited personnel for the Olympic Games (26 July to 11 August) and then for the Paralympic Games (28 August to 8 September).

Île-de-France Mobilités is the organising authority for all transport in Île-de-France, enabling 12 million people in the region to get around every day. For the Paris 2024 Games, Île-de-France Mobilités will be on hand to provide all public transport for spectators to the competition venues by significantly increasing the transport offer. For accredited persons, in addition to the global mobility partner, Toyota, which is already supporting Paris 2024, the organising committee has chosen to work with Île-de-France Mobilités to organise the transport of accredited persons by bus and coach.

For spectators, Île-de-France Mobilités and its operators will implement the transport plan for all modes of transport (metro, train, RER, tram and bus), and thus meet Paris 2024's ambition that 100% of spectators should be able to get to the competition venues by public transport or active modes. Île-de-France Mobilités is therefore committed to adapting the public transport offer and ensuring that the millions of spectators can reach the competition sites, in accordance with the commitments made by the Paris 2024 Games Bid Committee.

In furtherance of this commitment, Île-de-France Mobilités will be working side by side with the Paris 2024 Organising Committee to arrange transport for accredited personnel during the Games.

The exceptional scale of the transport operations during the Games (200,000 accredited people, 1,400 buses) and the unique expertise of Île-de-France Mobilités make the organising authority for sustainable mobility in Île-de-France a key player in the organisation of transport to meet the very specific needs of Paris 2024 and an essential player in the coordination of the various transport services required to make the Games a success.

Over the next two years, Île-de-France Mobilités will support Paris 2024 in implementing the transport plan for accredited persons: assessing access conditions and minimising the impact on the regular network, identifying the vehicles (buses, coaches) that can be mobilised and the operational bus centres for the Games, and contracting services with the operators.

Île-de-France Mobilités will also contribute to the setting up of the operational control centre for public transport services. This collaboration will strengthen the coordination of communication with public transport users during the Games.

This joint work is also part of the transport plan approved by the IOC, in conjunction with the contribution of Toyota, the global mobility partner of the Paris 2024 Games, which will play a substantial role in the success of the event.

Île-de-France Mobilités' competence temporarily extended for the duration of the Games by the public authorities in order to carry out these missions alongside Paris 2024

In the Law of 21 February 2022 on differentiation, decentralisation, deconcentration and various measures to simplify local public action, Parliament adopted a government amendment extending the remit of Île-de-France Mobilités to enable it to provide a bus transport service to Paris 2024 accredited persons for the duration of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The legislator has thus given Île-de-France Mobilités the power to organise the transport of accredited persons that the Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games will not provide itself.
