Torcy (French pronunciation: ​[toʁsi]) is a railway station in Torcy, Seine-et-Marne, a suburb east of Paris.

History[edit]

Torcy opened on 19 December 1980 as part of an extension of the A4 branch from its previous eastern terminal of Noisy-le-Grand - Mont d'Est. It served as the eastern terminus of the A4 branch for twelve years until 1 April 1992, when the RER A4 was extended to Marne-la-Vallée - Chessy; since then, the A4 branch has yet to be extended.

Ridership[edit]

According to RATP, 13,716 passengers used Torcy each day in 2006 for a total of 5,006,340 passengers annually.[1]

Service[edit]

Torcy is on the A4 branch of the RER A and receives frequent service. As of 4 February 2008, during peak hours there are between twelve and eighteen trains per hour (intervals of five and three minutes and twenty seconds), during mid-day trains arrive every ten minutes, and early mornings and late nights trains come at fifteen-minute intervals.[2][3]

The station also acts as a terminus for certain trains. Trains that terminate at Torcy will display a headline beginning with O, O being the designation that a train terminates at Torcy rather than Q for Marne-la-Vallée - Chessy.[3]

Bus connections[edit]

Along with the RER, the RATP also provides moderate bus at Torcy with both regular bus service and Noctilien service at night.
