40 additional trips and more vehicle congestion. This is exactly what you can expect from the autumn bus and trolleybus timetables.

– The changes will take place on October 1 – he announces Monika Fisz, spokeswoman for the Public Transport Authorityin which work on new departure tables is underway. – The publication of the passenger information will take place in the next few days.

ZTM decided to add courses, but only on those lines where more passengers are expected.

– As a result of the analyzes, the distribution of selected lines will be strengthened – adds Fisz. – There will be a total of 40 runs per day, including lines 17, 26, 31, 151 and 158.

It does not mean that the cast of these lines will be greatly strengthened. – On each of them, there will be an average of 6 to 9 additional courses a day – says the spokeswoman of the ZTM. And if we divide it into two directions, it is easy to see that there will be three to five additional one-way trips on the five lines.

The Public Transport Authority has been emphasizing for a long time that it cannot afford to amplify the distributions morebecause the costs of communication functioning have increased drastically, especially the costs of electricity.

– The transport industry is most affected by the drastic increase in prices and the pandemic, which is also confirmed by the situation in other cities – emphasizes Monika Fisz. He admits that the increase in communication costs will be double-digit. – Taking into account this year’s increase in the prices of electricity, diesel oil and consumables, it should be expected that the increase in costs may even exceed 20%.

Ticket outflows increased

The Public Transport Authority expected to obtain PLN 80 million this year from the sale of tickets. For half a year, he did not manage to collect half of this amount, only slightly over PLN 27 million, i.e. less than 34%. It is still a much better result than last year. At that time, PLN 80 million of revenues was also planned, only PLN 19 million was collected in six months, and less than PLN 45 million throughout the year.
