All residents of the French city of Montpellier are granted free access to public transportation.

Residents of the southern French city of Montpellier can now ride public transport for free, making it the latest European metropolis to adopt this policy. This follows in the footsteps of Luxembourg, which made public transport free throughout the country in 2020. However, visitors and tourists will still be required to pay 1.60 euro per trip. The mayor of Montpellier, Michael Delafosse, introduced the initiative as part of a commitment to the environment and improving people’s financial situation. The number of subscribers to public transport in the city has significantly increased since the announcement, with a new transport tax on companies helping to fund this initiative.
