Bolivia: Transport Fares Will Not Change


La Paz, Jan 11 (Prensa Latina) The Bolivian government reaffirmed on Tuesday that public transportation fares would not change, and asked local governments to ensure enforcement of this decision, to preserve the economy of the people.

  After holding talks with union members, Minister of Works, Services and Housing Walter Delgadillo reaffirmed the support of the administration for the decision made by the Telecommunications Authority and Transport (ATT) to maintain established fares.

For this reason, Delgadillo asked authorities from the nine departments and councils to enforce the corresponding regulations to preserve the economy of the Bolivian people.

The 2009 Constitution and the Framework Law on Autonomy establish that regional governments “are in charge of regulating, setting and administrating the fares and everything related to urban transportation,” Delgadillo noted.

However, the government of President Evo Morales is open to “reconcile criteria” with transportation workers to find alternatives to meet their demands.
