Price increase coming a month and a half
In Kiev in the near future may become more expensive fare on public transport.
1 hryvnia is likely to increase the fare in the subway, trolleybuses, trams, buses and funicular. Now for a trip to land transport Kiev to pay 3 UAH, and in the subway to 4 UAH. After the price increase will be UAH 4 and 5, respectively. Will rise and travel to the city train – from 4 to 5 UAH.
About a possible price increase was said long ago. Back in January of this year, officials from transport insisted that it is inevitable due to the cost of electricity (the main cost resource), gasoline, and an increase in the minimum wage, the loss of public transport that the city is not able to subsidize. Then in the mayoralty have assumed that prices will rise in late summer or early fall.
Draft Directive on passenger fares in all gortransporta 1 hryvnia appeared on the website of the KSCA yesterday. However, to officially comment on the appreciation of officials of the Department of transport have refused, referring to employment. “Wednesday will be an official statement about the cost of travel. Now we can not comment on this issue”, — told us in the Kyiv metro.
In the main Department of price policy of Kyiv city state administration assured us that the learning situation with the increase of travel.
“We analyze all submitted materials and numbers of transporters. While a definite answer regarding the date of the price increase and a new fare we have. I think the decision will be announced on Wednesday or Thursday. Transport companies refer to their unprofitability and want a lot. But wanting, as they say, is not harmful. There is an option that travel throughout the gortransporta will rise to 1 UAH. To subsidize transportation, the city budget is clearly not enough, and current rates unprofitable”, — said the “Today” head of Basil Yastrubinsky.
He adds that the procedure of price rise of the cost of travel will take at least 1.5 months. “We need to conduct public hearings with the people of Kiev about a possible price increase, to hear the transport, register the order in the Ministry of justice. It’s not a matter of one day. I can assure you that the price increase for travel in June will not be, technically it is no longer possible. Most likely the fare will rise from 16 July. It all depends on the decision that decides the leadership of the city,” says Yastrubinsky.
