Paris Offers Free Public Transport To Reduce Pollution In The City

Commuters in Paris will be able to enjoy some free public transport services and a subtle hint of a pollution free city. The city is pursuing the unique traffic policy to battle one of the worst winter-pollution that the citizens have experienced for the last 10 years.

Arch Paper reported that several cars with odd-numbered license plates were banned for traveling. While some exceptions were made for even-numbered license plates that are tagged as hybrid vehicles can have more than two passengers at a time.

The mayor of Paris recently tweeted a disheartening image, which clearly illustrates the city's need to get rid of as much car as possible. Reports state that any driver caught not following this particular rule is to be fined around $37 or worse, have their cars impounded.

Still, not a lot of people seem to care regarding the city's state or the reinstated traffic policy. Many civilians prefer to pay the fines instead, amounting to 1,700 motorists on December 13, 2017. This is just a portion of the traffic scheme, which was rolled out a couple of days ago.

However, a number of reports, including one from The Local indicate that Paris is losing $4.3 million in a single day. To urge more skepticism with the new traffic scheme, results show that the pollution has increased as opposed to what the policy have actually aimed for.

On the brighter side, the Public transport system in Paris is steadily going under major developments. The project's aim is to implement several subway overhauls in the entire city, which have been already active at Bjarke Ingels, Kengo Kumo, and Dominique Perrault.

This would further improve the PM10 pollution level state that Paris is currently categorized under, which is still less worse compared to some cities like New Delhi and Beijing.
