Route taxi drivers' argument

Mogilev route taxi rivers are on the different sides of the fence. After the price rise of public transport fare they can not arrive at the conclusion about route taxi fares. Some of them, including the management of a big non-state enterprise, have upped the fare to make Br7.000. Their competitors, representatives of two commercial companies and a number of entrepreneurs, still keep to the fare of Br5.000. The conflict is becoming tougher and tougher.

Vasily Cherny, a chairman of Mogilev city consumer protection organization, says that route taxis number seven travel without passengers because the price has gone up. According to him, entrepreneurs are complaining about the pressure from the side of the competitors to raise the fare to make Br7.000. Mogilev citizens are worried.

Sergey Yaskov, a chairman of the trade union “Sadruzhnast” (route taxi drivers are the members of the union), explains the situation by the lack of centralized control over the fare. Sergey Yaskov personally thinks that there are no reasons to raise the fare so sharply. Fuel prices and taxes have not changed, the inflation of a Belarusian ruble is not considerable. He is sure the situation is to stabilize within a couple of weeks.

In Mogilev City 500 private minibuses and 26 routes. The trade union “Sadruzhnast” says that the price conflict refers to six-seven routes most popular with the citizens of Mogilev.
