New rules for public transport users were set up in Belarus. Some of them were made public by representatives of the Ministry of Transport of Belarus during a press conference this week.
Want to buy a ticket from a driver? Board a bus, trolleybus or tram through the front doors.
If a driver ran out of tickets and you have none on yourself, the responsibility will be borne by a passenger.
It means that if a person went to the vehicle’s back area and didn’t manage to buy a ticket beforehand and validate it, the inspector can fine him.
One can buy a ticket for an inter-city trip right before a bus departs. Also, passengers have to apply their electronic tickets to a validator, while entering a vehicle.
When a distance-based fare system is introduced, a passenger will have to apply a ticket both when entering and leaving the passenger compartment.
Сhanges have also affected the drivers of passenger transport. They are now obliged to follow the dress code, no home or sportswear is allowed.
There are innovations in the work of a taxi. When a car is called via the internet, the carrier will send a receipt to the customer’s e-mail.
In case a driver is late, a passenger can refuse his services. The new rules will come into force on 12 October.
