Our expertise

In December 2022, RATP Dev as part of the Parklife Metro Consortium has been awarded contract to operate and maintain Western Sydney Airport line for 15 years.

RATP Dev Australia is based on extensive and proven experience in urban transportation services.

Leveraging the technical expertise and experience of our parent company RATP Group, RATP Dev operates and maintains transportation systems on five continents. RATP Group is the 3rd largest public transport operator globally, including for the Paris network, one of the world’s largest multimodal transportation networks.

Backed by its 120-year history as owner and operator of the Paris network and its 30 years’ experience in fully automated systems, RATP Group is the world leader in fully driverless metro operations with 10 GoA4 lines, including greenfield and airport lines.

We dedicate every day to better living cities and contribute our expertise in powerful mass-transit, with 5.6 million daily passenger journeys by metro. That's our driving purpose.

We are fully committed to bringing our expertise to Australia.

Our commitments

The Australian public transport market is RATP Dev’s new challenge. It has been on our radar for quite some time and our decision to enter the market was driven by the outstanding pipeline of public transport projects, with a particular focus on automatic and driverless metros, which is our core expertise as demonstrated both in our hometown Paris and overseas.

The ambition and investment at both Federal and State level for new public transport infrastructure in Australia is impressive and demonstrates a great appetite for even more liveable and environmentally friendly cities that rely on cutting edge public transport services that will benefit local communities. Our ambition is to provide world-class services delivered with a local touch thanks to our comprehensive stakeholder engagement.

In every region we operate, we bring the latest technologies, more than a century-long expertise, and look up to the local leaders to guide our mission and drive their own vision – towards a better tomorrow.

We work every day for better city living.
