RATP Dev and Belgrade to collaborate on the Serbian capital's metro system RATP Dev

The city of Belgrade, in Serbia, has extended its contract with RATP Dev for “Early Operator Assistance” for the upcoming three lines of the city’s metro system. The renewal follows a “Memorandum of Understanding” signed in September 2023 between the Serbian capital and RATP Dev, aiming to strengthen their collaboration and ensure the metro system meets international standards.

Since April 1st, 2024, RATP Dev, the international subsidiary of RATP Group, has been elected by Belgrade’s Secretariat for Public Transport and BMV (Beogradski Metro i Voz) for its experience working with automated metro systems and high-capacity networks.

Under the renewed contract, RATP Dev will contribute its international operator experience and expertise to review and advise on the functional design and specifications of the future metro system, focusing on operations, maintenance, safety, passenger experience, and cost optimization.

Hiba Farès, CEO of RATP Dev, expressed gratitude for Belgrade’s renewed trust and emphasized the company’s commitment to designing an effective, dependable, and attractive metro system. Belgrade’s fully automated metro project is the largest and most important infrastructure undertaking of the Republic of Serbia today, according to a RATP Dev spokesperson, with plans for Line 1 (21.8 kilometres over 21 stations), Line 2 (24.2 kilometres over 26 stations), and Line 3 (23 kilometres over 22 stations).
