Private carriers need to raise fares

On Saturday, on a route never had one bus and private carriers. Thus they reacted to the refusal of the city authorities to raise a tariff.

Buses of private carriers in Poltava on Saturday, may 11, not out on the trails because of the disagreement to work at the old rates, UNIAN reports.

It is noted that the carriers need to raise fares to at least six hryvnia.

The head of the Poltava municipal dispatch Yuri Friend told reporters that on routes there is no bus private carriers. Passengers were transported in the morning only trolleybuses.

The carriers said yesterday at a meeting of the city Commission on transport demanded higher tariffs, but the decision on this issue was not accepted. At the meeting, the carriers warned about stopping passengers from may 11. Acting mayor of Poltava city Council Secretary Alexander Chamotte in Facebook said that carriers wanted to make a “mutiny”.

“What happened last night!? The failed rebellion of carriers and directed by certain political forces… Carriers tried along with their allies in city Council to push through this decision!.. The plan on Saturday was to be held an extraordinary meeting of the Executive Committee, which had to raise fares. And the plan was routed through the Commission and on Saturday we demand the convening of the Executive Committee, where forced to increase the tariff, and on Monday we’ve been going for six!”, – posted by Grog.

According to him, carriers today at a meeting of the Commission will again require a fare increase.

“So come to Poltava to come and help defend the legal procedure for the revision of the tariff…,” added Grog.

At the same time, Deputy mayor Alexei Chepurko believes that the tariff for transportation needs to improve. Now in Poltava travel in the bus is 4-5 UAH per ride, carriers have repeatedly demanded from local authorities to raise prices for travel.

We will remind, in Lviv in January rose travel in a bus from five to seven hryvnia.

In Cherkassy raised the price of travel in minibuses from four to five hryvnias.
