According to SNCF, Saint-Lazare station is used by 450,000 passengers a day making it the second busiest station in Europe after Paris Nord.
It is used mostly by daily commuters to and from Paris and its suburbs to the west, and a total of 1.2 million visitors.
The station has been equipped with 300 passenger-information screens, and 21 escalators and lifts. It also features a 200m-long glass-covered passenger circulation area.
