A new payment method is being tested on the SNCF Assistant application: the Edenred Ticket Mobilité. From 28 October to 18 December 2021, this solution from the world leader in digital payment solutions for specific uses will be available on the railway company’s app.

A new payment method is being tested on the SNCF Assistant application: the Edenred Ticket Mobilité. From 28 October to 18 December 2021, this solution offered by the world leader in digital payment solutions for specific uses will be available on the railway company’s app.

This experiment will support the transition from “home-to-work” journeys to soft mobility as part of the Sustainable Mobility Package, which came into force in May 2020 in line with the LOM law. For the record, companies can pay for their employees’ transport costs between home and work up to 500 euros per year on an optional basis. This package obviously only covers soft mobility, i.e. bicycles, scooters and electric scooters, carpooling and self-service cars, but also public transport apart from subscription costs.

The Edenred Mobility Ticket will enhance the functions of the SNCF Assistant. Trips eligible for this method of payment are indicated on the application by a pop-up, and travellers can pay for their “home-to-work” TER trips directly on the application. The SNCF has thus added to the network of Edenred Ticket Mobilité partners, which since June has included Lime, MyPangee, Cityscoot, IZIVIA, Ubeeqo, BlaBlaCar Daily and E.Leclerc.

At the same time, the SNCF Assistant application is continuing to expand the number of towns and cities where passengers can buy and validate paperless public transport tickets. Menton and Morlaix, two towns in the Keolis network, have now been added to the fifteen other towns where this option already exists (Belfort, Cholet, Draguignan, Evreux, Guérande, Maubeuge, Montbéliard, Nevers, Poitiers, Les Sables d’Olonne, Saint Brieuc, Saint-Lô, Saint Nazaire, Sophia Antipolis and Troyes).
