France24 reported in 2016 that there were several proposed schemes to buy out the (still) transferable taxi licenses. Cost was apparently a problem though:

In a “roadmap” presented to taxi companies and cabbies’ unions on Monday, French Transport Minister Alain Vidalies said he hoped a dedicated fund would guarantee drivers get back the same amount of money that it cost to buy the licences, plus inflation. [...]

Vidalies hopes his road map will become a solid proposal by the summer. There are 55,000 taxi drivers in France, and a fund to guarantee the cost of their licenses would require anywhere between €2 and €5 billion.

Did anything come out of these proposals since then?
