Free public transport

Anne Hidalgo had announced that she was considering introducing free transport. However, an expert report commissioned by the Île-de-France Region is sceptical about the effectiveness of such a measure. The modal shift from cars to public transport and therefore the impact on air quality would be minimal. Moreover, the measure is not necessarily socially fair as social tariffs already exist for the lowest income groups. A more global approach is needed, focusing on active mobility with new investments.
