Why are free public transport initiatives gaining ground?
Thursday 28 June 2018
In France, as in many other countries worldwide, a growing number of cities have opted to launch free public transport initiatives. What factors motivate this decision, and how do cities finance it? Maxime Huré, a lecturer in political science at the University of Perpignan, shares his views on this subject.
Metropolitics needs your help more than ever! Our journal, launched 10 years ago, will be forced to close in the next few months if we do not manage to raise €20,000 ($25,000). So far, we’ve received over €16,000, which is fantastic, but not quite enough. We are therefore calling upon your solidarity and generosity to help keep Metropolitics going, free and accessible to all. If you pay taxes in France, your donation is 66% tax-deductible. THANK YOU !
