In Ufa administration are discussing the possibility of introducing a floating tariff for journey in public transport. In particular, the city authorities considered the possibility of increasing the fares during peak hours at the last round table on transport reports Proufu.ru.
The idea of introducing a new pricing policy was proposed in the fall of the Ministry of transport, however, the Chairman of the state Committee of the Republic of Belarus Svetlana Wineskin proposed to introduce a new system now.
According to authorities, the introduction of floating rates will reduce the load on public transport during peak hours. However, in the capital of Bashkortostan with this initiative can be difficult, because, firstly, the proposed scheme will need to bring to private carriers, who themselves set the price. Second, there can be problems with public transport, which, according to the resource Рroural.info he will have to cut existing prices.
The resource also reminds us that a floating tariff scheme was introduced in Ulyanovsk. Morning rush hour travel in the city bus cost 20 cents, then 18 cents, and after 20:00 the price rose to 24 rubles.
Practice of dynamic tariffs applied in London where the fare during rush hour is 17 percent higher than at other times.
