Krasnodar, 23 December. Members of OPORA Russia NGO have reportedly won governmental support for public passenger services.
The organization proposed to prolong the application of reduced tax system to small and midsize public transport businesses that were mostly affected by the pandemic. The initiative was based on numerous requests of transport companies who noted a significant decrease of intermunicipal passenger traffic.
“The factual fall of the passenger traffic and consequently the receipts of transport companies varies between 30% to 50%, compared with the figures of the same period last year. Analysis of the financial situation shows that the situation in the passenger conveyance sector is not improving,” Daniel Bashmakov, Chairman of OPORA Russia’s Krasnodar regional branch, explained.
A special workgroup of the regional Legislative Committee’s Committee has reportedly reviewed and backed the initiative put forward by the NGO.
