Ile-de-France: to avoid a Navigo pass "at 120 euros", Belliard offers a tax on SUVs and an eco-contribution on parcels


The ecologist deputy to the town hall of Paris, in charge in particular of transport, exposed his ways to defuse the "social bomb" represented by the increase in the price of the Navigo pass.

After the increase of nearly 10 euros in the Navigo pass on January 1, Valérie Pécresse, president of Île-de-France Mobilités (IDFM), the organizing authority for transport in the Ile-de-France region, convenes Monday, January 23, a "Assises of financing" to the period 2024-2030.

For David Belliard, it is urgent to find new financing solutions.
