Raising of the transport fare in Yerevan is the brightest example of using of price lawlessness, chairman of the "Informed and protected consumer" NGO, Babken Pipoyan, said at today's press-conference.
"First, Yerevan Mayor's Office raised transport fare from 100 up to 150 drams and presented the reasons and grounds of that. Then it suspended the decision without any comment", - he said.
He thinks that Yerevan transport fare should remain at the level of 100 drams, as all the same, drivers of minibuses gain profit from this tariff. "Just for this reason, civil activists demanded not to subsidize tariffs for transport services in Yerevan, but to preserve the previous tariff", Pipoyan said.
