The Minister Delegate for Transport Clément Beaune wants to develop within two years a "

single ticket

" allowing to travel with public transport everywhere in France, based on the results of an innovation competition organized Tuesday and Wednesday in Paris.

It is through innovative and concrete solutions that we can revolutionize the daily lives of public transport users in France.

The single ticket is a measure that can be deployed throughout the territory and which will facilitate all travel

, ”he said, quoted in a press release on Wednesday.

When I came up with this idea, I was told that it would take at least ten years to do this.

But I am convinced that in the space of two years, we can develop the single ticket everywhere in France

“, According to the press release.

The transport ticket allowing tomorrow to pass from one region to another and/or from one network to another "

We are not starting from nothing

Regarding a possible single tariff, "

we must respect this policy of decentralization of transport

"

I distinguish between the support and the price, even if I think that the support can lead to simplifications of prices and encourage the organizing authorities to propose common prices

", he added.
