Île-de-France Mobilités must decide in December concerning the increase in the price of the Navigo pass. Three scenarios are on the table, according to “Les Echos”.
On the one hand, the executive does not want to make a rebate, on the other Parliament is cautious about the idea of increasing the ceiling of a levy, and in the end… it is the user who risks to toast. The Ile-de-France transport union, IDFM, must decide in December on the increase the price of the Navigo pass, which allows Ile-de-France residents to travel as they wish throughout the region. Three options would be on the negotiating table depending on The echoes, Tuesday, November 15. Two of them would increase the price of the subscription: one of five euros, passing the subscription to approximately 80 euros. The other would be a radical blow to the wallet: the subscription could go from 90 to 100 euros.
First track considered and preferred by Valerie Pécresse (LR), president of the Île-de-France region: the “German scenario”. In Germany, a package at 49 euros will be deployed, allowing travel throughout the country at low prices. Transposed to the French region, this would allow you to stay on a Navigo pass at 75.20 euros per month. For this, the State should agree to pay off the debt of the “Covid loan” to transform it into a subsidy, or reduce VAT on transport from 10 to 5.5% and leave the added value to Île-de-France Mobilities. A scenario shunned by the executive, according to the daily.
