The tram, trolley bus and the bus will cost as in Moscow

Probably, in 2005 fare in minibuses and on social ground transport will be identical - 10 roubles. Anyway, such change of tariffs is put in the budget project the next year. To balance tariffs it is supposed as follows - the city compensates to private traders of an expense, and those in turn reduce tariffs. Thus, distinction between social and commercial transport completely will disappear.

as have told to us in Committee on economic development, the industry and trade, it not unique change which is expected in transport sphere next year. So, all organisations - both state, and commercial - will participate on the same level in competition. Its essence - to win a prize (territory and routes) which need to be served. To carriers, in particular to a rolling stock, will make certain demands. So, for example, the bus fleet should not be more senior 3 - 5 years. Besides, transport will go under the certain schedule. Control over quality of service of passengers is assigned to separate structure - State Unitary Enterprise the Organization of transportations . If three infringements the contract with a carrier is terminated are noticed.

in Committee on transport about future changes heard, but confirm or deny the information to us could not: All while in process. Our problem - only to transport passengers, and how much it will cost, on us does not depend. However to raise fare in ground transport it is necessary, now it works at a loss .
