It’s a boost that should delight young people aged between 15 and 25 living in the Loiret department and even throughout the Centre-Val-de-Loire region. From Friday, they will be able to take regional coaches and trains free of charge on weekends and public holidays upon reservation on the Rémi network.

A challenge social and ecological

Young people must first register on the Yeps website in order to obtain a free Rémi Yep’s Centre-Val-de-Loire card, says La République du Centre. Then, at each time they want to travel, they will have to reserve a place and make sure that they have a free ticket, warns the Rémi network on its website . To do this, they can connect to the websites of SNCF Connect, TER Centre-Val-de-Loire or go directly to the station ticket offices.

Centre-Val-de-Loire is the first region to set up this system, ensure our colleagues. It has invested 7 million euros. “It’s a social issue, to allow young people to move in financial autonomy, but also environmental, to favor public transport rather than the car. The third challenge is education for life. mobility together with the decarbonization of transport,” to the regional daily Philippe Fournié, deputy vice-president; mobility, transport and intermodality.
