We must not allow older people, people with disabilities or children to use only car connections said the Prime Minister. As he explained, by restoring bus connections, the government decided to face the civilisation problem.
Through subsidies from the central budget, in cooperation with gmina, poviat and voivodeship self-governments we are going to restore liquidated connections stressed Mateusz Morawiecki.
The head of government informed that in the coming days the funds from the Self-Government Road Fund will be distributed and the Minister of Infrastructure added that in the 2nd half of May the Act on the Bus Connection Development Fund should come into force. This Act is intended to enable the restoration of previously closed connections. As Andrzej Adamczyk explained the Bus Connection Development Fund and Self-Government Road Fund are the
two pillars of restoring local transport.
The Prime Minister pointed out that the bus connections are to be restored
under the supervision of strategic thought of the Marshal and Voivode.
Ultimately, all means of transport will be logically integrated with the Polish National Railways,” the Head of Government emphasized. “I hope for a common ticket as well he added.
The Local Government Road Fund will facilitate the modernization of many municipal and district roads. This year, the Fund has PLN 6 billion at its disposal. On the other hand, the government will allocate PLN 800 million to the deficit in bus transport, paying up to PLN 1 for every bus-kilometre.
We hope that the Poles will enjoy the reactivation of bus lines and co-financing of the lines that have been lacking so far as early as in the second half of the year the Minister for Infrastructure stressed.
