Extrapolitan is the global sign of the refined collection of locally-branded open-top, city tour bus operators that have each become an integral part of their city’s unique landscape. Their ambition is to reinforce and expand decades of expertise from London and France while increasing their partner and customer base worldwide.They have carefully cultivated and deepened local roots, and simultaneously aim to responsibly grow their collection of iconic cities around the globe. Extrapolitan is part of RATP Dev, a subsidiary of RATP Group.



OPEN LOOP New York is part of RATP Dev, the RATP Group subsidiary established in 2002 to export the group’s operations and maintenance know-how outside the historical network operated by RATP in the Paris region. RATP Dev is present in twelve countries on four continents (United Kingdom, France, Italy, Switzerland, Algeria, Morocco, South Africa, USA, Brazil, India, China and South Korea). RATP Dev is aiming at revenue close to €1 billion in 2014.

With twelve million passengers every day worldwide, RATP Group is the fifth largest urban transport operator in the world. The multimodal network operated by RATP in the Paris region, with its 14 metro lines (including two driverless lines), two regional express network (RER) lines, five tramway lines, 350 bus lines and shuttle services catering to the region's two international airports, is the largest of its kind in the world to be managed by a single company. RATP Group can devise, design and implement infrastructure development projects, operate and maintain networks irrespective of the transport mode (metro, regional train, tramway and bus) and develop innovative services to promote mobility such as passenger information, electronic ticketing, pricing and customer marketing. The automation of Paris metro's Line 1, which was completed at the end of 2012, is a world first and once again has demonstrated the ability of RATP Group to complete particularly complex projects.
RATP Group exports its know-how all over the world via its Systra subsidiary (of which it owns 50%) in engineering, through its wholly-owned RATP Dev subsidiary in operations and maintenance and through its IXXI subsidiary for innovative services promoting mobility.

RATP Group has a workforce of nearly 60,000 worldwide and in 2013 generated revenue of €5.14 billion.
