2 UAH fare is too low, carriers are on the verge of unprofitability

As uzhgorod.in reported, they want to increase the price for travel in the buses in the regional center. The raise of fares was initiated by the Association of passenger carriers of Uzhgorod. To keep the balance of opinions and hear their motivation, we asked representatives of carriers for comments. The Chairman of the Association of passenger carriers of Uzhgorod Yaroslav Kulya insists that city buses are on the verge of unprofitability. And, of course, he complains about exempts.

"The price should be around 2.30, as we propose, in order our business to be profitable. It will be profitable, only we must first resolve the issue of discounts enjoyed by our citizens."     

The representative of Uzhgorod carriers says: "The fare depends on many factors, in particular, on the number of passengers. If it is less, the fare, unbder economic calculations, should be higher. Although we have less passengers, but a bus costs 320,000 in Lviv, as well as in Uzhgorod. The price for the vehicle is the same, for fuel - the same, but passenger traffic is significantly lower ... I was in Lviv yesterday, and there they have already decided on the 2.50 fare, in March it will be approved."

 However, the claims that carriers are on the verge of unprofitability are rather questionable. Particularly, because, as some sources repeatedly informed, in the calculation of tariffs they take into account incorrect numbers of persons transported, such as only by number of bus seats.

The proposal to increase tariffs for passenger transportation today is considered by the special commission, then they will submit their decision for the approval of the Executive Committee. uzhgorod.in is following the issue and will report whether in Uzhgorod bus fares will be 2.30.

Шановний Ярослав для такого міста як Ужгород віртість проїзду 2 гривні достатня і пенсіонери тут нідочого нехочеш працювати іди у Львів і працюй там. Можно подумати, що якщо вартість проїзду стане 2.50 то ці хапуги водіїї не будуть набивать битком людей стануть вічними та і парк автобусів в місті оновиться. Тут тобі така порада якщо не хочешь то непрацюй прийдуть інші перевезники які будуть працювати за тарифами 2 гривні без питань.
