Solution

The conurbation or federation of communities christened "Épernay, Coteaux et Plaine de Champagne", was officially founded on January 1, 2017, federating 50 municipalities, and 50,500 inhabitants, around Épernay and Vertus.

Acting as transit authority, the conurbation’s council appointed RATP Dev to operate its Mouvéo bus system, featuring six regular routes and ten DRT. RATP Dev already had other subsidiaries in the region, such as STDM, Champagne Mobilité, and the city bus system of Charleville-Mézières-Sedan. For the new contract, RATP Dev created the Compagnie de Transports du Pays de Champagne (CTPC). CTPC's 37 dedicated employees service some 21 towns, in addition to providing schoolbusing and paratransit service through another network, Mobilibus.

"We are satisfied with the service continuity that has been provided by RATP Dev. Switching from the previous operator was not easy, yet RATP Dev pulled it off seamlessly for our city transit users."
