Despite bad treatment of users and units in poor physical and mechanical condition, owners ask to raise fares…
MERIDA — The poor condition of transport units, coupled with the mistreatment by drivers to users of all ages, mainly senior citizens, are among the main reasons why opponents say the fare increase that the concessionaires have requested from the authorities is not justified.
In addition to insecurity in the buses’ physical and mechanical conditions, some drivers are characterized by endangering the lives of users. Some of them even talk on the phone while driving and ignore the stop signals and red lights.
The general director of the bus line Minis 2000, Rafael Canto Rosado, said that the urban transport entrepreneurs handed over to the State Government a study prepared by an important firm in which a fare reestablishment in the urban transport sector is recommended: $ 13 pesos for an adult tickets and $ 6.50 for the social rate.
He said that one of the main complaints of the business sector of this branch is that for almost 12 years the Social rate (student ticket) is frozen at $ 3 pesos, so they say that it is difficult to offer a better service to the citizenship at this cost.
It is worth noting that the quality of the service, when the drivers of the units go to work without personal arrangement, and when they commit accidents, has nothing to do with the price of the tariff.
However, he argues that this increase would bring with it a domino effect that will allow increasing the coverage in the city, and the implementation of new and better-designed and connected routes.
