TRANSPORT – From August 9, the new health law makes the health pass compulsory for traveling on TGV and Intercity trains.
The ticket, possibly the reduction card, an identity document and the health pass. This is what you will need to have with you from August 9 to make a long trip aboard an SNCF train. And we must not forget the famous pass imposed by the new health law. Indeed, the CEO of the SNCF, Jean-Pierre Farandou indicated this Thursday that the controllers would check them from “the day when the law comes into force”, that is to say on August 9. “There is a law and we are there to apply the law. We will be ready, ”he said.
“We said we would carry out massive checks, everywhere and all the time. That does not necessarily mean exhaustive, because we simply do not know how to do it, ”he noted. Pass controls will be carried out “rather on the ground, not far from the boarding gates when there are any”. “There may also be checks on board (…) with brigades of controllers reinforced by agents of the Suge (Rail Security, Editor’s note) and even checks on arrival”, possibly with the support of the forces of order, detailed the leader. “We have 21 major stations, which account for 70% of TGV traffic. These stations will be particularly treated, ”he said.
