Extrapolitan is part of RATP Dev, a subsidiary of RATP Group established in 2002 to export the group’s operations and maintenance know-how outside the historical network of urban transportation operated by RATP in the Paris region.
RATP Dev operates and maintains all modes of transportation (buses, metros, tramways and rail systems) in 14 countries on four continents (United Kingdom, France, Italy, Switzerland, Algeria, Morocco, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, the USA, Brazil, India, China, South Korea and the Philippines).
Currently, RATP Dev is one of the few public transport operators in the world to boast know-how and experience in sightseeing through its subsidiaries (Open Tour Paris, The Original Tour London & Windsor, Navigatours in Bath & Cardiff) and franchises in Nice, Marseille, Monaco, Lisbon & Porto, Hong Kong, Budapest, Split, Rome & Athens.
With nearly 14 million daily passengers worldwide, RATP group is the fifth largest urban transport operator in the world. With its 14 metro lines (including two driverless lines), two regional express rail lines, seven tramway lines and 350 bus lines and shuttle services catering to the region’s two international airports, the multimodal network operated by RATP in the Paris region is the largest in the world to be managed by a single company.
RATP group can devise, design and implement infrastructure development projects, operate and maintain networks irrespective of the mode of transport (metro, regional train, tramway and bus) and develop innovative services to promote mobility (including passenger information, remote ticketing, pricing and customer marketing).
RATP group exports its know-how all over the world; in engineering through Systra, its subsidiary jointly owned with SNCF, in operations and maintenance via its wholly-owned RATP Dev subsidiary and in innovative services to promote mobility through its RATP Smart Systems subsidiary.
