«

We reviewed the transport plans with our experts, with all the stakeholders concerned (...) It's an extremely complex operation, we totally agree," Dubi said at an IOC press briefing, which has been meeting since Wednesday in Paris for an Executive Board meeting.

"There's still work to be done and that's normal"

«

In central Paris, we have an incredible concentration of sites with probably half a million spectators per day. It's an extraordinary opportunity to show how beautiful your city is, but it's also a challenge, a challenge in terms of transport," he said. The mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo (PS) said ten days ago that transport will "not be ready" for the Olympics, drawing the wrath of Sports Minister Amélie Oudéa-Castéra and Transport Minister Clément Beaune.

«

Based on what we have seen from all the operators, it reassures us enormously. There are still 7-8 months to go until the Olympics, so there is still work to be done and that's normal," he added.

Transport fares have been revised upwards for the Paris Games and the price of the ticket of the Paris metro will almost double during the summer of 2024 to finance the additional costs related to the Olympics, announced Monday the president of the Île-de-France region Valérie Pécresse. The traffic plans drawn up by the police prefecture for motorists in Paris were unveiled on Wednesday.
