Paris [again] ponders free public transport

connexionfrance: "Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo is considering making the capital's public transport free to all Parisians in a bid to reduce air pollution - but her plan faces opposition from the head of the regional transport authority, who said the move would hit taxpayers.

Ms Hidalgo has launched a study into the feasibility of free city-wide transport, and told French daily Les Echos she wanted to debate the issue ahead of municipal elections in 2020. She told the paper: "The question of free transport is one of the keys to urban mobility in which the place of the polluting car is no longer central"."
