Uzhgorod carriers have been allowed to raise the price
Very soon the price of travel in Uzhgorod buses will increase to 2.30 UAH. The first step towards this was made today, January 17.
In Uzhgorod City Council there was the meeting of municipal interagency committee on the implementation of state price policy, which regulates fares on public transport.
The Chairman of the commission, Uzhgorod Mayor Victor Pogorelov informed about the proposal of carriers to raise the price to 2.30.
Trade unions and the local branch of the party "Batkivshchyna" in the letters asked not to do this.
Instead, the increase was approved by the Transcarpathian office of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine.
Finally, the committee voted unanimously for the proposal to prepare draft decision on increase of the fare. Now it will be approved (or rejected) by the members of the Executive Committee at its meeting.
Victor Pogorelov, judging by his speech, does not mind that fare on city buses in Uzhgorod cost 2.3 UAH. So there is a high probability that this decision will be approved by the executive committee with no problems.
Also, the carriers at the meeting were blamed for faulty schedule. So Pogorelov suggested the Association of private carriers to install cameras at the terminal stops in order to monitor timing of buses departures.
