Transport Minister Clément Beaune wished on Sunday on the RTL-LCI-Le Figaro Grand Jury set “that the increase in tickets be in any case lower than inflation” and “that those who need the train on a daily basis, the most modest, young people who use the Ouigo for example, are protected. »

A 10% increase in ticket prices?

“If we passed directly (the increase in the electricity bill) on the cost of the ticket, we would have to increase the TGV tickets by 10%”, assured Jean-Pierre Farandou. He also wanted to reassure by promising that the SNCF would not pass on “100% of the costs to the customers”.

In addition, the Minister of Transport also mentioned the increase in toll prices which should take place in 2023 and said he hoped that it would be below inflation. “There will not be an increase of 7 to 8%, it is not possible,” promised the minister.
