Polis member STIF to test a new 100%-electric mobility solution

13 March 2017

Polis member STIF (the public transport authority for the Île-de-France Region) will launch through RATP two trials for Aptis, a new 100%-electric mobility solution that offers all the advantages of the tram in a bus.  The test phase will start in the second half of 2017 in Paris and in the Ile-de-France region.

Aptis is designed to ensure a clean and efficient transport system for cities and offers a new passenger experience with its low floor and 20% more glass surfaces. Aptis has a special design based on that of a tram and incorporates low-floor accessibility and 360° views. Two or three large double doors enable easy on-and-off passenger flows and smooth access for wheelchairs and strollers. Aptis occupies 25% less surface area in curves thanks to its four steerable wheels thus providing perfect integration into the city. At bus stops, this minimises the space needed to park while offering gains in available space for other vehicles.
