Tomorrow, April 22 in Kyiv, introduced new rules for calculating the fare in taxis. At the insistence of the Executive Committee, carriers are required to objectivate passengers. And those, in turn, are obliged to pay the fare upon entering the bus. Beneficiaries are also required to show a valid photo ID upon entering the bus, and not to put the driver before the fact on the way out.
A journalist of RIA decided not to wait for the day of the introduction of the new rules and on Friday experienced the willingness of drivers to work in new ways. It was rush hour. At 18.00 in the minibus on route 1, people were Packed like herrings in a barrel. Standing next to the driver, the journalist reached the 5 hryvnia to the driver. He silently took note, and pulled away from a stop, clearly not going to objectivate passenger. I had to ask them to issue a ticket. And in response to the silence. The request to issue a ticket sounded twice more. The third time the driver looked at the passenger as if, before him stood an alien and for some reason asked: “are you me?” “Well, of course. You’re the only driver,” necessarily had a chance to remind the carrier of his duties. The driver reached into the glove compartment and in the hearts on the move tore from the roll as many as three, though two of them were spoiled.
The ticket was essentially the same, a little like a document that is not bringing God to the accident, can be used in court. It clearly States the price of travel, but no name of the transport company that should be listed on the back of the card.
It seems that to accept money from passengers drivers ready, but to comply with your duties forget.
