TRANSPORTS - The president of the European Metropolis of Lille agrees to make a gesture for the students who had paid for transport to go to courses which did not take place

The spread of more transmissible variants of the coronavirus makes probable the need for “stricter measures” in France “in the near future”, due to an already “very high” number of hospitalized patients, estimated this Friday, February 5, a head of Public Health France. For now, the government excludes a new containment .

Due to the coronavirus epidemic, the academic year for Lille students was largely disrupted, interspersed with periods in which face-to-face classes were simply canceled. However, many still pay for subscriptions to the ilévia network which have become, in fact, unnecessary. Tired of paying for nothing, students, sometimes in a precarious financial situation, had requested reimbursement from the carrier Ilévia. The latter had refused, explaining that he would not reimburse anyone since "the public transport offer on the ilévia network is maintained at its highest level".

"We must show solidarity with the students"

So it was its principal, the MEL, who set foot in it: "We must show solidarity with the students who are in many ways affected by the health crisis that we are going through ”declared the president of the metropolis, Damien Castelain. He announced on Friday that he would "grant reimbursement of Ilévia subscriptions to students whose courses were organized remotely." "

This exceptional measure, we do not yet know who will finance it. Is it the carrier who will have to return the money collected or is it the MEL who will take from its budget to help the students. Asked about this by 20 Minutes, the MEL has not yet responded.
