Île-de-France: how the price of public transport has evolved over ten years

INFOGRAPHICS – Between freezing, rising, “dezoning” and free, many announcements are made each year on the price of public transport in the Ile-de-France region. Le Figaro takes stock of the evolution of tariffs since 2009.

As she begins the home stretch of her mandate, the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, promises new measures for next September to facilitate access to public transport in the Ile-de-France region for Parisians. The free Pass Navigo for disabled people under 20 and, as well as the reimbursement of 50% of the subscriptions for middle and high school students are among the new features that should be implemented in September. The question of prices in public transport comes up frequently on the table in Paris, where with each increase they are closely scrutinized. Anne Hidalgo had even considered, before giving up the idea. Here is how prices have evolved over the past ten years.

The price of the ticket book has skyrocketed in ten years

Created in 1900, the metro ticket, because it “is no longer the tool for intelligent transport. For example, each year, 5 million tickets are demagnetized ”by accident, explained this summer the president of the Île-de-France region, Valérie Pécresse. Its latest version, the t + ticket, was introduced in 2007 to allow Ile-de-France residents to make connections without paying for an additional ticket.

Since 2017, the single ticket costs 1.90 euros, against 1.60 euros ten years ago. During this period, the price of the book of 10 tickets has increased significantly, by 30%. Announced for October 2019, the “Navigo Liberté +” package, which can be used with a classic Navigo Pass, will be aimed at t + ticket users, eventually replacing it. It will make it possible to benefit from the ticket book rate from the first trip (i.e. € 1.49 instead of € 1.90 in 2018) and also ensure free connection between the metro and surface transport, including the funicular of Montmartre.

Parisians, big losers in the evolution of Pass Navigo fares

In 2001, “contactless” technology was introduced and the first Navigo Passes appeared. The areas served then range from 1 (Paris) to 6. Parisians who rarely leave the capital could be content to pay each month for zones 1 to 2. But with the arrival of the all-zone pass in 2015 (there is no ‘there are then more than 5 zones), they saw the bill increase dramatically, being forced to buy a full price package. As of September 1, 2015, this measure concerned some 3.8 million Ile-de-France residents subscribing to public transport.

With this new Navigo Pass billed at the single price, at the time of 70 euros (75.20 euros today), Parisians are the big losers in the reform. From 2014 to 2015, the latter paid almost 35 euros more for their annual pass. If we compare the subscription in zone 1-2 (Paris-intra muros) ten years ago with that of the Navigo Pass today, we see that the monthly prices have skyrocketed. by 33%.

Conversely, this “dezoning” is a good deal for the inhabitants of zone 5, who pay from their Navigo Pass much less expensive. For the latter, the monthly rates have fallen by 43 euros per month, thus representing a substantial saving of more than 500 euros per year. The introduction of this single-price Navigo Pass has also benefited employers, who reimburse part of the transport costs of their employees.

In 2019, the Navigo Pass exclusively for zones 2-3 is still available. Zone 2 of the Ile-de-France network includes several end of the Paris metro line such as Mairie des Lilas or Boulogne Pont de Saint-Cloud station. Located further outdoors, zone 3 encompasses Colombes, La Défense, Meudon, Nogent-sur-Marne and Saint-Denis. In ten years, the price of this subscription between zones 2 and 3 has increased by almost 30%. This year, as in 2018,. Since 2017, students have paid their imagine R card 350 euros per year, i.e. 16 euros more than four years ago.


The senior Navigo Pass in circulation since 2018

Since 2018, the Parisians of transport in Ile-de-France. Receiving less than 2,020 euros per month, nearly 200,000 Ile-de-France residents can benefit from this senior Navigo Pass.

In addition, and this from this year, the unit ticket will be available for some on the Navigo Pass and dematerialized, with also the first experiments on smartphones.
