Intercités

Intercités (before September 2009: Corail Intercités) is a brand name used by France’s national railway company, SNCF, to denote non high speed services on the 'classic' network in France.[1]

SNCF established the Intercités brand in January 2006 to capture the remaining, mainly medium distance network of Corail trains, so called because they use the air-conditioned fleet of 'Corail' coaches introduced by SNCF from 1975. Intercités covers all the important SNCF routes not served by the TGV network.

Since December 2011, the Téoz (long distance trains with reservation obligatory) and Intercités de Nuit (overnight sleeper train) brands have been re-integrated and the Intercités brand now covers all non-high speed SNCF national-network passenger services. In October 2012, the French government announced increased funding for Intercités services, as part of a new transport strategy.[2]
