Several Russian regions have preserved free public transport services for social benefit recipients in 2006
Several Russian regions have preserved free public transport services for social benefit recipients in 2006. Moscow, Ingushetia, the Kaliningrad and Omsk regions, the Evenki and Agin-Buryat autonomous areas, and the Voronezh region have decided against monetising public transport benefits, the Transport Ministry told Itar-Tass on Monday. Some regions have not cancelled free public transport services but introduced special transport passes for benefit recipients. Regional transport passes are used in 65 regions. Demand for such passes increased almost time and a half in the second half of 2005 from 17 to 26.5 percent. Earnings from public transport services in regions in 2005 grew by more than one-third from 2004. However despite the increase in earnings, “transportation continues to operate in the red because losses have decreased by only 1 percent of operating costs, to 7 percent,” the ministry said.
