This is reported by Censor.NET's correspondent in the parliament.
265 parliament members supported the bill which stipulates for implementation of automated system of payment for the use of the public transport. The local authorities will be responsible for distributing beneficial electronic tickets to qualifying categories of population.
The bill also defines the administrative responsibility for violation of rules of public transport use under the new law. It authorizes local governing bodies to define the cost and the order of payment for use of public transport by citizens given each municipality's local conditions.
The bill was passed after suggestions of expert committees had been taken into account.
