In the center of Ternopil more than 5 thousand citizens held a protest against the increasing cost of travel in urban buses and trolleybuses. About it reports “UKRINFORM”.
“In the neighboring regional centers, the costs of transportation of citizens approximately the same as in Ternopil, but travel there 2-3 times lower than ours. So we want to have a detailed, substantive information regarding raising prices on public transport,” said one of the co-organizers of the action.
The protesters called for law enforcement and regulatory authorities to respond to the increase in tariffs for transportation of passengers.
In Ternopil from November 1 to travel in the bus rose to 9 UAH, and in the bus – up to 8 UAH. Also in Kyiv and region until the end of 2018, the journey in minibuses will rise in price by 1-3 of the hryvnia.
