Amur Region will spend 50 million rubles on new passenger buses
In the framework of the state program "Development of the transport system of the Amur Region" in 2020, the municipalities of the region will receive support for updating passenger buses. For these purposes, 50 million rubles will be allocated from the regional budget.
As the Minister of Transport and Road Facilities of the Amur Region Alexander Zelenin told EastRussia, this amount will be enough to purchase more than 40 units of transport for municipal routes.
The development of railway transport will continue in the region. This year, suburban communication in the region is carried out via 13 routes in the Arkharin, Magdagachinsky, Skovorodinsky, Tyndinsky and Selemdzhinsky districts. The running of suburban trains is maintained between settlements where there is no alternative passenger service.
This year there is a fare paid by passengers in the amount of 95 rubles for the first ten-kilometer zone, which has not changed since 2016 of the year. In 2015-2019, the regional government introduced travel benefits for students - 70% of the tariff, for employees of institutions funded from the regional and local budgets, as well as for pensioners - 50%. Last year, 17,610 thousand passengers were transported at a reduced rate in commuter trains.
“Organized plying a group of wagons along the socially significant route Blagoveshchensk - Vladivostok. Previously, it was one wagon with a long wait in Khabarovsk coupling with rolling stock in the direction. In 2019, a group of wagons was put on the route: two compartments and two reserved seats, and there was also a shuttle service, bypassing the Khabarovsk railway junction with a six-hour stop, through Belogorsk station - an hour of waiting, ”said Alexander Zelenin.
The decision turned out to be correct, since the occupancy of cars in this direction is 90%. A group of wagons will operate on the route next year.
“It is planned to continue work, if possible to establish a year-round period of movement of a group of direct wagons along the route,” the minister said.
