Vers une tarification plate dans le Rhône. Enjeux, limites et perspectives de la restructuration tarifaire sur les lignes régulières départementales

Abstract : Nowadays, questions of mobility between urban areas occupy a major place in political thoughts, in particular on a departmental scale. Since 1982, French Departments have the responsibility to organize the offer and define pricing policies on their network, after planning and implementing non-urban public transports policies apart from urban transports areas. On the Department of Rhône, despite the increase of policies to boost non urban public transports, frequentation of regular network tends today to stagnate. This assessment put forward the lack of links between the local offer of public transport and new mobility behaviours, especially on suburban and rural areas, where cars remain almost the only type of transport at this scale. The choice to set up a new pricing system, based on a single price whatever the distance, comes directly from the diagnosis carried out previously. In January 2008, Rhône Department will propose this pricing policy, witch allowing free connections on the whole network, with just a ticket. The present study not only aims to put forward the different operating steps to implement this project before January 2008, but also propose to analyze the different suggestions made by technical services to organize new economic rules and to preserve the validity of operating system contracts, signed in 2003. Written during a six months internship from April to September 2007 in public transports technical services of the Department of Rhône, it emphasizes the main goals, constraints and limits of this project. It's also considers major prospects of this new pricing policy in different public transport policies started on metropolitan scale.
