Commissioner for Human Rights in Saratov Region Tatiana Zhurik appealed to the administration of Saratov with a request to take extra measures to improve public transport. The Commissioner suggested considering the opportunity of engaging the auditory message of passengers about stops of the public transport in terms of the contract concluded with the transporters.
The number of appeals on the work of public transport filed by citizens of Saratov Region to the office of the regional Commissioner has increased recently. The main question that worries citizens is the lack of the auditory messages at the stops. Its relevance relates to the winter season, when the weather conditions, frozen windows of transport don’t allow passengers to find their bearings on the route and track their stop.
In November, the administration of the “City of Saratov” municipal district reported to the regional Commissioner that it had taken such measures. According to citizens of Saratov Region, despite the fact that such measures were taken by the transporters, the situation actually has not changed. The system of the auditory messages at taxi and bus stops has not been introduced yet.
