Judge order to maintain subte fare at 4.50 pesos appealed

Buenos Aires City lawmaker Alejandro Bodart (MST-New Left) has appealed Judge Elena Liberatori’s order to maintain the subte fare at 4.50 pesos, asking for the tariff to go back at 3.50 pesos until “the real cost structure of the service is clarified.”

According to Bodart, the price hike shouldn’t have been applied as the City Gov’t did not give any legitimate reasons. “Even Judge Liberatori considers the raise is not justified,” Bodart told reporters.

“The real cost structure of the service should first be detailed and clarified.”

Bodart considered the Judge’s resolution to be “insufficient” as regards discounts: “We want the benefits to include all users and all payment means”, he said, in reference to the differentiated tariff system set by Liberatori which establishes discounts when buying in advance 20, 30, 40 and 50 journeys.

The lawmaker also warned users to watch Metrovias doesn’t hide the discount options: “50 trips should cost 3.68 pesos and 40 should cost 3.92 pesos,” he recalled.
