Last increase of tariffs in fixed-route taxis was one year ago, and there was a paradoxical situation when in all municipal transportation began possible to go for five roubles this spring. From - for availability of a minibus have ceased to be luxury even for pensioners. At stops huge turns grew.

Besides, two roubles by which the ticket price in fixed-route taxis increases, penzentsy pay growth of a salary of drivers (a share of fund of payment as a part of expenses - 27 %). If the earlier average salary of drivers made 2500 roubles at the moment of the statement of tariffs the size of an average salary has made 5600 roubles.
