Transports pour Valoris' (TPV) is the local government organisation responsible for most aspects of Valoris transport system. TPV is a statutory body created by the State of Broceliande in 1961. This Act gives to the Valoris-Capitale Province a general duty to develop and apply policies to promote and encourage safe, integrated, efficient and economic transport facilities and services to, from and within Valoris. The services operated by TPV include Valrail, Valoris Métro, Buses, Trams, Taxis, cycling services, Midi Coach Station, and Maillot international aiport.

TPV provide ways to pay through contactless payment cards and provide information in different formats to help people move around Valoris. Live travel information is provided directly by TPV and through third party organisations which use the data made available to power apps and other services.

TPV's income and funding comes from a variety of sources, including fares (~40%), taxes, government grant and borrowing, other sources including advertising income, property rental...

TPV invests billions to improve the Capital's transport network. Proposals include improving suburban railways, the métro and bus metworks and the cycling infrastructure and tackling vehicle emissions. The last Transport Strategy was published by the Province board on 1 september 2016.

TPV works on a range of local transport initiatives, including walking and cycling projects.

Services are provided by a mixture of wholly owned subsidiary companies (principally Métro de Valoris et Aéroport Maillot), by private sector franchisees (trams, most buses) and by licensees (some buses, taxis). Suburban trains are operated by the CFP under the control of TPV.

TPV has its head office on Chaussée de Buirette in the 14th canton of Valoris.
