- A train line was built between Paris to Chartres, created by Gallardon, at the beginning of the 20th Century, with a station in the nearby town of Gometz-le-Châtel. It was used from 1931 to 1939, but there is no traffic nowadays. Paris RER, B line, serves the village today. (Bures-sur-Yvette (Paris RER) or La Hacquinière (Paris RER) + Buses).
- An experimental Aérotrain was built, from Gometz-le-Châtel to Rambouillet, for test, from 1966 to 1977, from a creation of Jean Bertin (train engineer). This project was stopped, for TGV's one, using rightnow.
