The Navigo pass could increase to 80 or 90 euros per month in 2023

The price of the Navigo pass will increase in 2023, without reaching the dreaded 100 euros. Valérie Pécresse hopes to contain the increase to around 80 euros if the government legislates to increase the mobility payment for Ile-de-France companies which “must accept their share of the effort”, she said on Tuesday. The president of the Île-de-France region and patron saint of Ile-de-France Mobilités (IDFM) assured: “Next year, the Navigo pass will necessarily increase as it is. »

Without state intervention, “the increase [de l’abonnement actuellement fixé à 75,20 euros par mois] would be important,” learned 20 minutes from a source familiar with the matter. An increase which should be between 5 and 20 euros. Valérie Pécresse announces a Navigo pass “at 90 euros per month”, from 2023, if the mobility payment, a tax weighing on companies with more than 11 employees to finance transport, does not increase

A pass at 80 euros per month

“The local authorities told me yes to increase their contribution by 7.5%”, she indicated, and the price of the pass could in all likelihood increase in the same proportions, or around 80 euros per month. Valérie Pécresse therefore wants the mobility payment to also be increased by 7.5%. A provision that only the government can make.

The Minister of the Economy “Bruno Le Maire said that the baguette should not increase too much, well it must be the same for the metro”, launched Valérie Pécresse during a visit to the Alstom sites in Crespin and Petite-Forêt (North). A visit intended to discover the new rolling stock ordered by IDFM for the Paris metro and the RER.

“I will not sacrifice the offer”

Currently, local authorities finance transport in the Ile-de-France region up to 12%, travelers 38% and businesses 50%. The president of the Ile-de-France region wishes to maintain this balance in the same way. She also recalled that, whatever happens, “the investment plans would be maintained” with the operation of the new lines of the Grand Paris Express, the extensions of the RER E or line 14, and the purchase of new trains and subways. “I won’t sacrifice the offer either,” she promised.

An IDFM board meeting is due to take place on December 7 to decide on funding options for 2023. It is necessary to find 750 million euros to allow the launch of tests on the new lines and pay the energy bill which should explode l ‘next year.
