Buenos Aires lawmaker Delia Bisutti rejected today Mauricio Macri’s claims that the subway fares could be put up to as much as $6 pesos, stating that the city government “had no reason to, nor is it authorized” to apply “a indiscriminate hike” on ticket prices “without holding a hearing first.”

The lawmaker’s statements come a day after the Buenos Aires city government officially took over the city’s subway service, when Macri stated that fares could be bumped up to a $6 peso standard fare, should the national government not apply subsidies.

“What has to happen from today is that the city government holds a hearing within the city legislature to evaluate the situation of the subways and the prices, but by no means is he authorized to apply a price hike right now,” Bisutti told El Mundo radio station today.

The city lawmaker also spoke about the closure of the A line of the subway, which will be closed from the second week of January for renovation works, calling it a “unnecessary barbarity.”
