Enters public transport chaos, urban operators warn of service delivery by 20 percent, demand ticket price indexation

Enters public transport chaos, urban operators warn of service delivery by 20

Public transport in the country has been plunged into chaos. Starting yesterday, the number of urban people in Tirana was halved. Urban transport in Tirana reduced service due to unaffordable high costs from the Covid-19 crisis and rising oil prices. Urban operators have demanded that for the high costs to be compensated the ticket price 30 lek per ticket and the subscription fee 600 lek per season ticket, otherwise warns the provision of service up to 20% from 1 November. Representatives of the Public Transport Union suggest that after a year and a half from the reopening of public transport, they are still at the starting point where according to them, none of the responsible institutions has taken any measures or fulfillment of the promised economic requirements. The announcement states that there were no reactions from local institutions. "Found in this powerless economic situation to cope with the performance of transport and especially after the continuous and uninterrupted increase in oil prices and the departure of staff, we are obliged to operate from 18.10.2021 with half the capacity of fleet of urban vehicles. We are in this situation after many requests and announcements in both local and central institutions where their non-reaction makes us go to an economic capitulation of this sector. "Starting today, the number of urban people in Tirana will be halved", it is said in the announcement. 2021 with half the capacity of the urban vehicle fleet.

Operators' requirements

Meanwhile, the operators have also requested indexation of the ticket price and the monthly subscription. The price of the urban transport ticket in Tirana is 40 Lekë and the line subscription is 1,200 Lekë and the general subscription is 1,600 Lekë. They demand indexation of the ticket price, reduction of VAT, as well as the abolition of excise or turnover tax for oil used by the transport sector. Kostandin Foni, director of the urban line Kombinat-Kinostudio-Tufinë told the magazine "Monitor" that the decision to reduce the service by up to 50% came due to the increase in costs from the increase in oil prices from 135 ALL / liter to 165 ALL / liter and non-compliance with many of the financial requirements for this sector. "The urban transport sector has requested the fulfillment of some financial requirements in order to mitigate the effects of the crisis from Covid-19. Financial claims were also sent before the pandemic, for which we have not received a solution. Due to the increase in costs and their inability to cope with the increase in the price of oil from 135 lek / liter that was previously supplied to 165 lek / liter that we are currently buying, we are obliged from today to reduce our service to 50%. In order to face this situation, the Ministry of Finance and Economy must index the single-use ticket and the monthly subscription subscription ", he said.
