Did you know?

The TGV Lyria stock, the trains, are the property of SNCF. The exteriors were completely laminated with the TGV Lyria colours in 2019. The interior has been adapted to correspond ideally with our identity and our mission to link France and Switzerland.

The staff on board are from France and Switzerland, and the train managers and conductors bring together employees from the two parent companies SNCF and SBB. When they board TGV Lyria trains, they wear their TGV Lyria hat and serve you on behalf of the brand.

The catering staff are dedicated to TGV Lyria.
