TER grande vitesseEdit

With the objective of connecting all the towns on the Northwest coast to Lille in less than an hour, the Nord-Pas de Calais région has put in place TERGV. Certain trains, with the agreement of the SNCF, use the LGV Nord from Lille-Europe to reach their destination instead of conventional lines. This enables them to connect Lille to Calais, Boulogne-sur-Mer, Dunkirk and Arras in less than an hour.

TER-MEREdit

Three or four weekends per year the Nord-Pas-de-Calais regional council offers a promotion called opération TER-MER. The promotion offers return tickets to a chosen beach for €1; passengers travel to a local station from where shuttle buses guarantee an on-connection to the beach. This promotion was used by 50,000 people in 2005[citation needed].

Electrification CompletedEdit

The railway is electrified from Calais-Ville via Gravelines to Dunkerque.
