NEW FINANCING MODEL FOR THE TRANSPORT SYSTEM

Porto Alegre takes the lead in a new sustainable financing model for public transport in Latin America.
 
A package of 5 bills is being presented which, if implemented, will be revolutionary as a financing model for any public transport system.
 
The model includes exemption from taxes and fees that burden the system, the creation of four tariffs such as congestion that will finance the system, and a change in the transportation voucher concession model.
 
The result will be savings for the municipality, an improvement in the quality of the system, lower tariffs for all users and an additional zero tariff for formal workers.
