3 SNCF, EUROPEAN LEADER IN ECOMOBILITY, REINVENTS COACH TRAVEL BARBARA DALIBARD, GENERAL DIRECTOR OF SNCF VOYAGES There is still a strong demand for public transport, and SNCF wants to respond to this by putting new activities in place, complementary to trains. By creating idbus, through its subsidiary SNCF-C6, SNCF is reinventing coach travel and offering a quality, comfortable, ecological and safe option. idbus is a way of travelling that is unique compared to any other long distance buses, and is able to respond to the mobility needs of Europeans. MARIA HARTI, GENERAL DIRECTOR OF idbus. To build this new offer, we are basing it on numerous client studies carried out amongst Europeans. The customers want comfort, flexibility and accessible prices. This innovative offer responds to their mobility needs and therefore brings them closer to their friends and families. 3 PRESS KIT

4 SNCF PRESENTS idbus AS A LEADER IN INNOVATION AND ECO-MOBILITY IN EUROPE, SNCF DECIDED TO LAUNCH A NEW LONG DISTANCE COACH SERVICE FOR INTERNATIONAL LINES: Since July 2012 idbus is offering premium long distance coach travel in order to meet the mobility needs of young people and families in Europe. idbus offers journeys from London to Paris, Lille and Lyon. It also offers journeys to Brussels and Amsterdam and, in Southern Europe, to Milan, Turin, Genoa, Nice, Aixen-Provence and Marseille. E.Bernard The idbus fleet is made up of Setra and Irisbus vehicles. 4 PRESS KIT

5 AN ANSWER TO THE NEEDS OF EUROPEAN MOTORISTS idbus is aimed at motorists who want a safer and more affordable mode of transport than the car and who wish to travel without compromising comfort. On the routes served by idbus, the car has a 50% market share. SNCF is breaking ground in organising the mode of collective transport that is most adapted to these travellers. idbus services are designed to tempt the private motorists out of their cars and to make the coach a positive travel decision, as it provides a real and credible alternative to driving and carpooling. In researching the offer, SNCF questioned motorists over several months and identified two major expectations: a simple fare structure facilitating short notice travel travelling safely and comfortably to visit family and friends BALANCED idbus aims to address 3 challenges: to meet travellers budgets without compromising their service experience to offer useful services while being profitable to offer an alternative to the car, whilst respecting the environment A RESPONSE TO ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES: idbus, a new alternative to cars, also responds to a strong social issue: to improve preservation of the environment. On average, a car transports around 1.8 passengers per vehicle on long distance journeys (over 100 kilometres). A 48-seater bus with a 75% load factor therefore replaces 20 cars. In order to optimise their ecological bonus even more, all vehicles are Euro V standard of emissions and the drivers are trained to drive economically. 5 PRESS KIT

6 idbus ROUTES THE idbus SERVICES CONNECT PARIS AND LILLE TO LONDON, BRUSSELS AND AMSTERDAM; AND PARIS AND LYON TO TURIN, MILAN AND LONDON.

8 THE UNIQUE idbus EXPERIENCE MORE COMFORT R. Guillou E.Bernard idbus is unlike any other current long distance coach service, largely because of the comfort it offers.

12 PRICES: A SIMPLE FARES STRUCTURE idbus TAKES A NEW APPROACH WITH PERMANENT TARIFFS The idbus prices are announced in advance and remain the same from the opening of the sales to the date of the departure.

13 idbus, SO MUCH BETTER THAN GOING BY CAR A TRIP FOR A HEN PARTY IN PARIS A group of 8 friends wants to host the hen party of their friend Emily in Paris. They want to go for 2 days and 2 nights, and the journey would require 2 cars. The total cost for such a trip in a car from London, including 2 days of parking, would be 851 i.e. 106 per person. With idbus, the girls can get 8 tickets for the price of 6, which represent 6 x 70 = 420 ( 52.5 per person) for the return trip. That is a saving of 54 per person, a little extra to party in Paris! Furthermore, they can travel together and chat or rest after their busy weekend. TOM AND RICHARD GO TO A CONCERT IN LILLE Best friends for 20 years, two young retirees from the London suburbs, Tom and Richard, have got tickets for their favourite musician s concert in Lille. An opportunity that they never thought would come their way One week before their trip they are still undecided about whether to take the bus or the car. If they took Richard s car, the price would be 367, however it would be 116 with idbus. They will be able to enjoy their musical escapade without a care in the world. And if the night is a late one then they avoid the risks associated with driving when tired. ANNA EXPLORING LYON Anna, a student in London, wants to spend a week with some friends that she hasn t seen for a while who live in Lyon. She ruled out going by car which would be too expensive at 770 for the return journey (including 7 days of parking). She also thought about going by car share too but couldn t find anyone travelling on the same dates as her! She then remember a friend s recommendation about idbus who offers confortable journeys to France: 90 for a return trip and she can travel comfortably, safely and cheaply. A LONG WEEKEND IN AMSTERDAM FOR NATHALIE AND CHRISTOPHE MARTIN AND THEIR TWO CHILDREN The Martin family from Lille wants to spend a long weekend in Amsterdam to visit their oldest daughter, who is a student in the city. The cost of the trip in a car, including 3 days of parking, is 374. With idbus the price is 173, i.e. 3 for the price of four with the Group Deal. It is also a good way to give the family car, which is 5 years old, a rest and furthermore allows Nathalie and Christophe to have a rest themselves while the twins play on the games console together N.B.: Car trip prices calculated using petrol price, road tolls, city center parking and running costs (insurance, vehicle depreciation, maintenance etc). idbus prices are evaluated based on the Mini Prices. 13 PRESS KIT
