  • Ce train est le premier TGV à concurrencer la SNCF en France

    TRANSPORT - Pour un premier voyage sans encombre face au TGV de la SNCF, la compagnie italienne Trenitalia aligne des prix bas, des fauteuils de cuir et des machines à café de compétition. Partie à 7h26 de la Gare de Lyon à Paris, la Frecciarossa (flèche rouge) 9281 est arrivée à Lyon à 9h18 le samedi 18 décembre, avec deux minutes d?avance, avant de poursuivre son chemin jusqu?en Italie. Pas de drapeaux ni de sirènes syndicales au départ pour protester contre l?arrivée sur les rails français du premier train à grande vitesse en concurrence frontale avec la SNCF. Seul problème, technique: les écrans de la gare ne peuvent pas encore afficher le logo rouge de Trenitalia. ?Le train est plein?, se réjouit Roberto Rinaudo, le directeur général de Trenitalia France (ex-Thello). Un effet de curiosité, des prix attractifs et aussi la peur de la grève SNCF, finalement évitée in extremis, ont attiré les clients. ----- Abonnez-vous à la chaîne YouTube du HuffPost dès maintenant : https://www.youtube.com/c/lehuffpost Pour plus de contenu du HuffPost: Web: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LeHuffPost/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeHuffPost Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lehuffpost/ Pour recevoir gratuitement notre newsletter quotidienne: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/newsletter/default/
