Andranik Tevanyan: capital`s authorities raise fares without any  reforms

Andranik Tevanyan: capital`s authorities raise fares without any  reforms

ArmInfo.The mayor's office wants to increase prices for urban transport, this by  the fact that the unit cost of transporting passengers on new buses exceeds 100 drams. Leader of the Mother Armenia movement Andranik Tevanyan wrote on his Facebook page.

Describing the prices set by the authorities as extortionate,  Tevanyan said that the latter propose setting the cost of a yearly  subscription for up to 1,000 trips at 110,000 drams. Meanwhile, to  use all types of transport in Tbilisi (bus, metro, cable car) and  without limit of number, the annual subscription price is 250 lari,  or 37,500 drams.

Describing the prices set by the authorities as predatory, Tevanyan  said that the latter propose to set the annual subscription price for  up to 1,000 trips at 110,000 drams.

In addition, the leader of the Movement spoke about a "70 minutes"  paper QR ticket with the opportunity to make 3 trips within 70  minutes from the moment of activation (subject to one-time use in  each vehicle), each use costs 100 drams. A similar card in Tbilisi is  valid for 90 minutes, without restrictions on quantity and for the  use of all types of transport, the price of which is 1 lari, i.e. 150  dram. In addition, the card can pass from hand to hand, that is,  several people can use this card.  "Let the illegitimate authorities  of Yerevan and their leader not try to tell fairy tales that it is  impossible not to raise the price of reformed transport. They have  not carried out any reforms, but they still want to increase  tariffs," Tevanyan wrote.

After "digesting" the increase in parking costs in Yerevan by more  than 10 times (from 12 thousand, the amount increased to 160 thousand  drams), the capital authorities, decided to increase the cost of  public transport in the city.

Deputy Mayor of Yerevan Suren Grigoryan said during a recent press  conference that different tariff packages will apply to public  transport, so it was difficult to indicate the exact amount of the  price increase.  At the same time, he said that when calculating for  60 trips per month (we are talking about 30 calendar days), you will  need to pay 11,000 drams in cash for a ticket, and when paying  through the Telcell system - 10,800 drams. Similarly, quarterly and  annual tickets will cost 25 thousand drams (via Telcell 24.8 thousand  drams) and 110 thousand drams (108 thousand drams) respectively.  "Accordingly, the cost of a one-way trip on one type of transport  will be 180 drams, instead of the current 100," he said.  According  to data circulated in the media, the cost of transport travel will  range from 300 to 500 drams per trip. Let us note that this is an  unaffordable price for citizens, many of whose monthly income is less  than $200.
