Paris Orly
OrlyVal is an APM line linking Orly Airport to Antony railway station (RER).
At the beginning OrlyVal was directly operated by Matra; in 1993 RATP took over this service, which hasn't been able to confirm the predicted ridership in order to generate profits (currently there are about 2,5 million pax/year).
