The collective from Córdoba, Santa Fe, Mendoza and Rosario will charge from $67.90 to $85 the value of each minimum trip from the weekend. From different parts of the interior, such as those named Mendoza and Córdoba, the districts must face expenses that were not stipulated, so their leaders go to the crossroads with the national government.
In numbers, today, the subsidies received by transport companies in the AMBA are more than $24.7 billion, while in the interior of the country the subsidy to collective is 3,800 million pesos.
The discomfort due to the lack of answers from the Ministry of Transportation of the Nation only aggravates the situation. Authorities from different jurisdictions sent a statement last week to alexis warriorNational Minister of Transport, in which they asked to improve the distribution of subsidies and warned of the lack of resources to face the increase in costs.
From the Argentine Federation of Automotive Passenger Transporters (FATAP) they communicated that they wanted the Nation to speed up the subsidy payment processes, since the delay of these payments implies consistent financial damages to the jurisdictions.
In addition, they ask the Commission of Transport of Deputies that work in the project of Federal Law of the Transport: rules that will set the allocation of subsidies for collective in order to avoid the inequity that the provinces suffer today.
Complaints from different points of the Argentine territory
Marcelo Rodio, Secretary of Transportation of the city of Córdoba warns of the suffering of the interior. He clarified: “There is inequity in the allocation of subsidies between AMBA and the interior.” And he added that “the Ministry of Transportation of the Nation does not attend to us.
In turn, from the province of Mendoza, Natalio Mema, secretary of Transportation of the city of Mendoza, stated: “In the case of Mendoza, the province had to contribute its own resources, something that was not agreed upon, and the Nation contributes less than 15% of what is assigned to the Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires (AMBA)”.
