Téoz train lines, in yellow, are regular speed (110 km/h) intercity trains.  TGV train lines in purple (both light and dark), are high speed train lines, known as LGV (lignes à grandes vitesses) on which TGV trains operate at 300-320km/h depending on style of train.  New double decker (duplex) TGV trains travel at 320km/h (199mph) at full speed while the older single level TGV trains operate at 300km/h (186mph).

Many edge destinations such as Nice, Toulon, Montpellier have a portion of the TGV route run at regular speed on non-TGV specific train lines (which are less straight).  These parts of the TGV route are run at non-high speed which is about 110km/h.
