ETF, which built the first Paris metro line and helped develop tramways in the 1980s, is a longstanding urban rail system partner in France and around the world.

Our expertise starts with the urban mobility project design, for which we develop innovative processes, including those designed to facilitate maintenance, reduce noise for local residents and improve our environmental footprint. Working in city centres, our employees are able to cope with work in the urban environment, including time constraints to accommodate road traffic and the proximity of users.

With a strong track record in metal and rubber-tyred rail systems, we also build networks, provide preventive and remedial maintenance and renew track.

Our expertise:

  • Metal and rubber-tyred systems
  • Network construction
  • Preventive and remedial maintenance
  • Track renewal

Our organisational structure: 

  • New construction and major extension works are under the responsibility of the Major Projects Division.
  • Upkeep, maintenance and minor extension works are under the responsibility of the Regional Activities Division.
