Since the convention signed in 2002 for a duration of 5 years, between Jean-François Humbert, then president of the Regional council of Franche-Comté and Noël Belin, then regional director of the SNCF, the regional council of Franche Comté is the organising authority of regional transports. A new agreement, signed on the 21st December 2006, by Raymond Forni, president of the Conseil Régional de Franche-Comté and Josiane Beaud, regional directeur of the SNCF, and Anne-Marie Idrac, president of the SNCF, from 2007-2012.
