France's SNCF operates TER (local) services on the Portet-Saint-Simon–Puigcerdà railway (from Toulouse-Matabiau) and on the Ligne de Cerdagne known as Petit Train Jaune (from Villefranche-de-Conflent, with connections to Perpignan). Spain's Renfe Operadora runs Rodalies de Catalunya trains from L'Hospitalet de Llobregat on the Barcelona commuter rail line R3. SNCF also runs Intercités de Nuit night trains to Paris.
