HIGH SPEED

Living France - - Decouvrez -

A to­tal of 40 new high-speed trains are set to hit the tracks in France. Due to go into ser­vice on the ParisBordeaux line in De­cem­ber, the Océane TGV trains can travel at up to 320km per hour and can carry a to­tal of 700 pas­sen­gers rather than the cur­rent 500. The trains will have power out­lets and USB ports at each seat and real-time screens with travel up­dates, and from July 2017, free wifi. By July next year, 17 of the trains will be run­ning while the rest are due to be launched in late 2019.
