Massy TGV is a TGV railway station in Massy, France. Massy TGV is a new station, located in Île-de-France, was built for the LGV Atlantique. Thus certain trains serve at Montparnasse Station and this station simultaneously, although it is not allowed to use the TGV for such a short distance. The proximity of station the Massy – Palaiseau RER station (one can even consider that Massy TGV is an extension of this station) makes it possible for this station to serve a great part of south Paris and its suburbs. The station also offers the advantage of enabling Lille-Tours(-Bordeaux) and Strasbourg-Tours(-Bordeaux) trains to serve Paris via the LGV Interconnexion Est without having to turn around at a terminus station (e.g. Gare de Paris-Est or Paris-Gare de Lyon). However, in spite of these advantages, the traffic of this station remains low.
