Low cost TGV Ouigo - It’s been announced that as of December the low-cost TGV Ouigo will leave from the Gare de Lyon, in Paris, to Marseille and the Côte d'Azur. Launched on 13th September in 2013 between Marne-la-Vallée (in the Paris region), Marseille and Montpellier, Ouigo has been serving Paris directly for a few months. Gare de Lyon will be the third station from the capital to welcome it, after Montparnasse in December 2017 and Gare de l'Est in July. The SNCF will offer three return trips a day from Paris to Marseille via Lyon-Saint-Exupery, Valence TGV, Avignon TGV, and Aix-en-Provence TGV. Two more services will go until Nice, stopping notably in Toulon, Cannes and Antibes. It’s a first for the low-cost Ouigo which up until now did not serve the Côte d'Azur. According to figures from the SNCF some 33 million people have traveled with Ouigo in five years, 65% of them having paid less than 25 euros.
