Published on : Thursday, July 6, 2017

TGVThanks to the two new freshly opened TGV routes, travelling between Paris and Bordeaux got more convenient minimizing travel time by almost 60 minutes.

Starting July 2017, two new TGV (that represent high speed trains of France) have been introduced cutting the journey time to a considerable extent between Rennes, Paris and Bordeaux.

These two routes exclusive of stations or other expenses cost more than 11 billion euros and took more than 11 years to be constructed between the two groups. The LGV Bretagne-Pays de la Loire had spent about 3.3 billion euros over five years placing in 182 kms of new track.

On the other hand, the LGV Sud-Europe Atlantique had spent nearly 7.8 billion euros over 340 kms in six years.
Swifter journey times would be accompanied by higher costs with tickets priced up to 13 euros more for Paris-Rennes, and 15 euros more for Paris-Bordeaux. As per a recent analysis that had appeared in a newspaper, this continues to represent good value per kilometers.

Journey times to Rennes is now quicker by 31% versus a ticket price hike of about 16% and Bordeaux quicker by 35% with a price hike of about 15%.
The people travelling to Poitiers would win to the maximum extent with about 19% quicker journey time for a ticket price of nearly 5%.
