As announced a few weeks ago, SNCB will increase its prices sharply from 1 February (barring political intervention). Such decided its board of directors last week. A logical increase given the impact of the rise in the cost of electricity (the SNCB is the first consumer in the country) as well as the indexation of the salaries of the 16,700 employees. In concrete terms, standard transport tickets will increase by 8.73%, those for school subscriptions (at the expense of parents) and home-work (mainly at the expense of companies) by 9.73%. At the same time, SNCB is announcing for next year products more adapted to the reality of its customers: “flex subscriptions” linked to teleworking, simpler and targeted tariff formulas according to the customer (young people, seniors, off-peak hours, etc. ). This indexation comes at the end of a budgetary conclave less favorable than expected for the rail operator, which will have to count its money in the next two years. He hoped for an additional 580 million euros over 10 years to carry out his 2023-2032 plan, he obtained 336. In addition, the government, in the planned budget plan, will only finance 234 million euros in 2023 and 2024. That is an initial shortfall of 808 million that SNCB will have to make up for through deferred investment and productivity gains.
