City bus fares to rise 20%

The national government has announced a new fare scheme for buses in the City of Buenos Aires and surrounding metropolitan areas, with the shortest journeys going up to 3 pesos with the SUBE card and 6 pesos with coins.

The rise will be effective from tomorrow and was revealed by the Interior and Transport Ministry through resolution 579/2014, published in the Official Gazzette.

The 40 percent discount for the retired, domestic employees and those who receive government assistance will remain in force, while the School and Student fares will not be changed.

As established by the new scheme, the minimum fare (up to 3 kilometres) increases from 2.50 to 3 pesos with SUBE, a rise of 20 percent. Without the card, the cost for travellers will be 6 pesos, up from 5.

Between 3 and 6km, meanwhile, fare will cost 3.25 pesos (6.50 without SUBE); from 6-12km, 3.50 (7); and from 12-27km 4 pesos (8).

For journeys longer than 27km, the fare will be 4.70 pesos (9.20).

The raise, according to the resolution signed by minister Florencio Randazzo, is due to salary increases of 28 percent for bus drivers in the latest negotiations.
