The increase of fare in public transport is due to the fact that the current cost of travel is much higher than the cost of the ticket.
The increase of fare in public transport of Kyiv is necessary for the proper operation, development and upgrade of transport infrastructure of the capital. This was stated by the mayor of Kiev Vitali Klitschko, according to his press service on Wednesday, may 16, reports Rus.Media.
“We have to raise the price of admission. Because transportation in Kiev needs to work properly, be safe and comfortable, just repaired and updated,” said the mayor.
According to him, the increase of fare in public transport is due to the fact that the current cost of travel is much higher than the cost of the ticket. At the same time, added Klitschko, today there is a need for development and renewal of rolling stock of public transport in Kiev. And all of this costs significant money.
In addition, the mayor stressed, at this time there is not enough public transport drivers, because people don’t want to go to work for low wages and are forced to seek work abroad. So, Klitschko noted, the city authorities should increase the salaries of the drivers.
Klitschko also noted that for the privileged categories of citizens remains free travel.
We will remind, on July 14, the public transport of the capital will cost UAH 8 4 UAH instead of the current.
