French term or phrase: Syndicat Intercommunal des transports
I am working on a translation pertaining to a public transit system in Valenciennes, France which refers to the Syndicat Intercommunal des transports as one of the consortium partners.

English translation:Leave it in French
Explanation:
This is an official name that has no English equivalent. See, for instance, the European Railway News - March 1996, from which the following is excerpted: "The long strike in France caused the end of the rail link Cannes-Ranguin, because two driver positions were lost by Cannes La Bocca Dépôt. The link was operated by SNCF on behalf of SITP (Syndicat Intercommunal des Transports Cannes-Le
Cannet) with the X 94630 rail car (owned by SITP, like a SNCF X 4630). This service started in 1978, before "Regions" paid
for such a service, and this operated to the end of the shuttle."
