In February, public transport will be more expensive without the SUBE
January 23, 2012
In order to expand the use of the electronic card, the Government announced that as of February 10, who did not pay with the UP, do not enjoy the transportation subsidy. It is the first step to “subsidize people and not companies,” said Schiavi.
In an advertisement, the Government announced that, in the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area (AMBA), “if you do not have your card you will lose the benefits and your ticket will cost more, but if you have your SUBE card you pay the same amount you pay today. “
In this way, it seeks to achieve that 100% of the population has the card SUBE (Single Electronic Ticket System) to start the project after the government has to redirect transportation subsidies and cut spending on classes affluent.
Asked if there were increases studied, Transportation Secretary Juan Pablo Schiavi said no increases are planned in transport, but “differential rates”.
“We have subsidized public transportation and we will continue to do, but we’ll change the method: Instead of subsidizing companies or transportation companies we want to subsidize people,” he added.
