The European Club of Intermodal Regions and Cities, in partnership with SNCF Mobilités, is organising a technical tour on intermodality in the Pays de la Loire region in France.
Starting from the Angers metropolitan area - in the presence of Christophe Béchu, (senator and mayor of Angers; president of the Angers agglomeration); Alain Hunault (mayor of Châteaubriant; member of the regional council; and chairman of the transport commission); and of Roch Brancour (vice-mayor of Angers; vice-president of the regional council) - this visit is an opportunity to discover the regional intermodality plan programmed by the regional council, which holds a leading role in the implementation of intermodality and the development of complementary transport modes on its territory.
The two-day technical tour will place in the spotlight recent and future developments of the regional intermodal passenger transport network, the attendance of which is constantly increasing.
