MOSCOW, September 9 (Itar-Tass) —— For the first time over past years, Moscow is not going to increase tariffs for municipal land transport, Moscow City Mayor Sergei Sobyanin told a meeting in the mayor’s office on Friday.
“We received a task for the next year to keep the level of tariffs for carriage on municipal busses and suburban services at the current level, which is possible only in the case if everything is all right with both the passenger traffic and the condition of the municipal transport stock,” he told members of the Moscow city government.
Sobyanin is confident that the passenger traffic sector has got a colossal reserve for its improvement, which may be done not only through the hike of tariffs.
Several years in row, Muscovites and guests of the city saw in the New Year with the news on the hike of prices for one trip in Moscow’s municipal transport by one or two roubles (USD 1 = RUB 29.49).
Now, a one-trip ticket for bus, trolleybus or tram costs 24 roubles.
