Île-de-France inhabitants will need an “employer’s certificate”, or “Attestion employeur” in French, to ride public transit at peak hours and go to work starting from May 11th. Ile-de-France region President has had this proposition listed in a charter signed this Wednesday with the State, the local authorities, employers, union trades and public transit operators and validated by the government. This certificate will be mandatory at peak hours between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. and between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. upon penalization. The Police Prefecture confirmed tolerance will be shown until Tuesday May 12th.

Crowded public transit in Île-de-France starting from May 11th: this is what Île-de-France Region President Valérie Pécresse wants to avoid at all cost. In order to reduce the flow of travelers in public transit during containment exit, Valérie Pécresse unveiled a few days ago her plan to exit the region and especially public transport from containment.

In order to avoid new contamination cases, she talks about compulsory facemasks in public transit, self-service hand-sanitizer distributors, mobile brigades to clean and disinfect transit without forgetting to favor remote working and alternative transportation means.

In this charter detailing the deconfinement plan, signed this Wednesday May 6th with the State, the local authorities, employers, union trades and public transit operators, Valérie Pécresse also speaks about an “employer’s certificatecompulsory from May 11th. The idea? That Île-de-France companies provide a derogatory trip certificate to their employees who cannot work from home and have to ride public transit to go to work. Goal? Smoothing out peak hours in public transit and detailing hours they can move.

As the government presented this May 7th the deconfinement plan, the Minister of Transition, Elisabeth Borne, validated this charter and this mandatory “employer’s certificate”. “The access to public transit at peak hours will be reserved for those having an employer’s certificate or can justify their trip with an urgent reason” she said. The minister also said that a 135-euro-fine in case of non-respect and no certificate will be possible but, "tolerance will be shown for the first days". Especially since this employer's certificate will not be available before Sunday, according to Le Parisien.

But then, what are the peak hours involved by the certificate? In Le Parisien on May 8th, Valérie Pécresse sais that this certificate is compulsory between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. and between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. upon penalization. Île-de-France Mobilités president added that controls will be performed in main stations and railways, confirming tolerance will be shown for the first few days, what the Police Prefecture confirmed: "Up to Tuesday, tolerance will be shown. Controls performed until then will have a pedagogical meaning".

Interviewed on BFMTV, Île-de-France Region Vice-President in charge of Transit Stéphane Beaudet explained: “it both limits the number of people in trains, but it gives a rather precise time slot enabling to smooth out peak hours. You can guess it is impossible to filtrate the entrance of stations to see if everyone has a certificate, so, people will be controlled like when tickets are checked”.
