Photo: globallookpress.com the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation has suggested regions to consider the possibility of widespread introduction of mechanisms of management of transport demand at a priority of public transport. "Among possible measures – introduction of dynamically adjustable tariffs for management of peaks of passenger traffics. It is about granting discounts for travel by public transport during the "off-peak" periods of time, but not about increase in tariffs in "rush hours"" — have reported in Ministry of Transport. The recommendations developed by the ministry can be used by the regional authorities for more effective management of a ratio of use of the public and individual transport, including by means of tariff regulation and the organization of traffic. "Use of dynamically adjustable tariffs for management of peaks of passenger traffics is the right, but not an obligation of executive authorities of subjects of Russia" — have specified in the ministry. Introduction of the tariffs differentiated on time of day is possible on condition of existence of electronic systems on payment of journey and introduction of the consolidated system of collecting a fare when transporting with the public (municipal) financing and payments of vehicles mileage on a route. The specified practice is applied in a number of the foreign cities, for example, in Hamburg, Frankfurt, London. In particular, in Hamburg the cost of the monthly ticket forbidding trips to morning peak of weekdays from 6 to 9 o'clock in the morning, more than on a quarter (for 27%) below, than the price of the full ticket, was specified in Ministry of Transport. The ministry has explained that the draft of the strategy of development for motor and city land electric transport of Russia until 2030 is agreed without remarks with 56 territorial subjects of the Russian Federation, 15 subjects have submitted remarks and offers, from 14 subjects of a position didn't arrive. Now the project of strategy is sent for approval in the interested federal executive authorities for the subsequent consideration at a meeting of the government commission on transport. Before RNS in Moscow Department of Transport reported that dynamic tariffs in public transport aren't the main means of regulation of demand for trips. "We considered and analyzed a set of different ways of regulation of demand for trips in city transport and we consider that dynamic tariffs are not the main means of involvement of passengers, at the same time nobody forbids to enter such tariffs" — the official representative of department said RNS. The department specified that it is much more effective to provide to Muscovites the convenient system of tariffs, the developed route network, high-quality service and regular traffic. Earlier it was reported that the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation will send to the government the offer on use of dynamically adjustable tariffs for management of peaks of passenger traffics, the Izvestia newspaper reported.
