The announcement as such is not a surprise.
On December 8, Sytral will vote for a new increase in fares in Lyon public transport, as is the case every year.
Because it "must take into account an economic reality", justifies Bruno Bernard, the president of Sytral.
Electricity prices which are exploding and which should impact the network "to the tune of 20 million euros", "no government support" or "new state aid", "nor a reduction in VAT on public transport,” he recalls.
An overall increase of 3%
"We have chosen to increase significantly less than inflation and we will not be on a 20% increase as in Ile-de-France", continues the elected environmentalist.
Solidarity rates will be maintained at 10 euros, and youth rates will remain at 25 euros, which concerns 60% of subscribers according to him.
On the other hand, “an effort will be required from other users”, he warns.
In concrete terms, the price of the single ticket will increase by 10 cents to 2 euros, we learned this Wednesday from Sytral.
The highest increase concerns classic subscriptions, namely the monthly formula “26-64 years old”: three euros more will be requested each month.
From 66.40 euros currently, the subscription will be re-evaluated at 69.40 euros.
