SNCF Hubs & Connexions
Who are we ?
SNCF Hubs & Connexions is part of SNCF Group, the world leader in mobility. It is a subsidiary within SNCF Gares & Connexions, a division part of the Epic SNCF Mobilités. We consider our stations as “City Boosters”:
- Stations are multimodal hubs connecting public transports (subway, trolley/street cars, bus, taxi, etc.),
- Stations themselves become destinations: a fancy place to have lunch or to do some shopping, because it is convenient and trendy,
- Stations are City Boosters who stimulate the economic development of the neighborhood.
We have a global vision of the station: from financial engineering to project management, but also from retail development to facility management. Our purpose is to design stations that allow for an improvement of the passenger experience while remaining easy to operate for their manager.
SNCF Hubs & Connexions draws on the expertise and experience of SNCF Gares & Connexions to deliver a new vision of the stations in the world. We accompany our partners for the design, the development and the management of their stations.
We have developed our skills in various fields of expertise:
- Retail study: optimize the commercial offer by developing a study on shops’ localization in relation to (the) passenger flows
- Business study: analysis of a station’s commercial potential (of a station) in relation to (the) passenger flows
- Launch and management of bids
- Project and works management
