Transport voucher 2023 amount for whom What we already know

TRANSPORT CHECK. To fight galloping inflation, the government is considering introducing a brand new transport voucher for daily journeys. For who ? What amount? We tell you everything.

[Mis à jour le 18 mars 2022 à 14h37] As part of the 2023 finance bill (PLF), the government would consider the creation of a new exceptional aid: the transport check. A check which could come into force from 2023 for users of public transport such as TER or Transiliens according to information from the Parisian. This new device is being studied to try to counter the significant rise in the price of energy and train tickets, in particular. A payment directly to the bank account of public transport subscribers holds the rope for the moment. This aid would complement systems already in place such as the Macron bonus, the energy check or the inflation bonus.

This transport check could target the most modest subscribers to the middle classes. The main objective for the executive is to offset the effects of inflation on the real cost of tickets due to higher energy tariffs. One thing is certain, TGV users will not be affected. The aim is to support travelers who use the train for their daily journeys. Further details should be provided by the executive next week when the 2023 finance bill is presented on Monday, September 26, 2022.

The transport check could concern the most modest households, up to the middle classes on daily journeys, such as home-work journeys. Several associations have been calling for a gesture from the government for weeks, in particular because of the devices launched abroad among our European neighbors.

The transport check on which the government is working could amount to 50 euros. A way for the government to protect users against the expected rise in train ticket prices from the regions, due to the impressive rise in energy prices such as electricity.

The entry into force of the transport check could happen in the coming months, from the start of 2023.
