To Valérie Pécresse, president of the Region Ile-de-France, it is "to give back desire for Paris to get out and reinforce the attractiveness of Paris and the region," says the press release of the Ile-de-France Mobility.

The service bus Noctiliens will also be reinforced those nights. Since 2016, a plan of action to develop the lines of Noctiliens is in place. 25 lines have already been strengthened during the year 2017, which corresponds to a 28% increase in the number of buses, as well as a continuous increase of approximately 25% of the attendance.

in Order to guarantee service and security, more than 700 agents RATP (station attendants, drivers, security officers...) will be mobilised. An operation to "600.000 euros per night," admits Valerie Pécresse, but which corresponds to a "strong request" of the ile-de-france. A communication campaign will be deployed at the beginning of each month in public places in paris and on social networks, in order to remind the ile-de-france the dates of the experiment.
