All trips for contactless cards purchased by passengers to the cost of travel will remain after the changeover. This was stated by the head of the press-service KP “Kiev underground” Natalia Makogon in the channel 112.

“All trips are saved. If you today and tomorrow credit your card, you will be able to safely use the 3.5 UAH for a period of time until use. All the tickets that people bought will be valid until the end of the month,” said Makogon.

According to Makogon, the tariff increase is due primarily to higher electricity prices.

“The main reason was the electricity tariffs in 2015, payment system for the metro was about 100 million hryvnia, now we get the payment on 400 million UAH. This change rate is only enough to pay for utilities or for innovation development, a new composition – all of these costs assume the city,” she added

As reported Корреспондент.netfrom 15 July this year the fare in Kyiv subway will rise in price for one UAH and is 5 UAH for a single journey.

In the Kiev subway explained the plans to raise fares for two reasons – higher electricity prices and an increase in the minimum wage level.
