the mayor of Nancy Mathieu Klein organizes the counter-attack

The low-cost line between Nancy and Paris, popular with many students in particular, did not convince the management of the SNCF, which decided to remove OuiGo by next December. The latter regrets a clientele not sufficient enough to make the line profitable and wishes to focus on professionals who regularly visit the capital.

An announcement “very bad“greeted by the mayor of Nancy Mathieu Klein this Tuesday morning, as he was able to confide on the antenna of France Bleu Lorraine.

And Mathieu Klein does not digest this decision, it is because the people of Nancy and the inhabitants of southern Lorraine have need this line. “It seems inconceivable to me in a student city and a living area that needs this service“, he regrets in a context where the destinations towards the south of France are not that many any more.

Organize the slingshot

Faced with the SNCF, Mathieu Klein therefore wishes mobilize the most local elected officials possible. “I asked all the mayors, the parliamentarians so that we remind the SNCF that we are the second urban student area in France, that we have businesses, health, close borders.

The risk of becoming a “cul-de-sac railway“while at the same time, Metz will keep its OuiGo line to Paris.
