Network map.

The network is made up of 17 train lines. All bus lines are operated by private operators under the Regional Council Authority. Unlike other regions in France, the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur separates their trains into two services:

TER : suburban or local services, with only 2nd class wagons. These trains are operated with multiple units. Intervilles : regional InterCity trains (not to be confused with InterCités trains, a nationwide service), with 1st and 2nd class, except between Marseille, Gap and Briançon.

This separation is done due to the presence of big metropolises on the coast (Marseille, Toulon
Toulon
and Nice) and a very rural hinterland (French Alps). Toulon
Toulon
doesn't have suburban services, as these are absorbed into Marseille's. The suburban trains from Marseille
Marseille
also continue onto Avignon, 100 kilometers away. Rail[edit] The rail network as of October 2017:[1]

Incidents[edit] Trains are cancelled and delayed every day. The TER Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur has the worst punctuality record in all of France, with 40% of trains being delayed or cancelled each day. This could be due to high congestion of the tracks near Marseille
Marseille
and Nice. The journey conditions are very bad during rush hours. Future[edit] With the building of the new LN Provence-Côte d'Azur line between Marseille
Marseille
and Monaco expected by 2030, regional traffic may grow. This will be achieved through the introduction of a new high speed train calling every hour at Marseille
Marseille
Provence Airport, the construction of a new underground train station in downtown Marseille, a new high speed stop in Marseille's Eastern Districts, and the enlargement of Toulon, Nice
Nice
Côte d'Azur Airport and Nice
