The region plans to order 10 trains for services in the northeastern departments of Ain, Savoie and Haute-Savoie, and 19 high-capacity trains for services from Lyon to St Etienne, Bourg-en-Bresse, Villefranche-sur-Saône, Vienne and Ambérieu.

The region has also asked SNCF Mobility to begin preparing for trials with hydrogen trains.
