Mykhailo Rivis: We need to intensify the fight against "illegal carriers" in the region

On Monday, July 14, under the chairmanship of the Deputy Governor Mykhailo Rivis, there was a meeting on the outcome of the automotive industry in the first half of 2014, improving road transport safety and the implementation of measures aimed at the withdrawal of "illegal carriers" from the transportation market.
The director of the department of housing and communal services, construction and infrastructure of the RSA Victor Lukecha, representatives of the Transport Inspectorate of Ukraine Office in Transcarpathian region, traffic police, "Zakarpatavtotrans" JSC, NGOs participated in the meeting. 
 First of all, Mykhailo Rivis drew attention to the need to strengthen the strict measures against "illegal carriers." Indeed, despite the efforts of regulatory and law enforcement authorities, "illegal" traffic does not make it possible to fully implement measures to create sustainable conditions for the functioning of the market of transport services in the region. 
 At the same time, the region is one of the leaders in the country in terms of ensuring safety of road passenger transportation.
  - During the first half of 2014, in the region there has been no motor vehicle accident with victims committed through the fault of bus drivers. This indicates that drivers in the region are professional and conscientious workers. Safety in the passenger transportation is the most important thing - Victor Lukecha said during the meeting.
 Note: As of 01.07.2014, 203 carriers carry out transportation of passengers on routes of general use, including 6 specialized transport companies, 11 private companies and 186 private entrepreneurs.

 The route network of internal regional bus commuting for general use consists of 491 routes, including 93 inter-city and 398 commuter routes. Every day, more than 950 buses serve routes of general use.
