Alert and anger in Córdoba over the removal of transportation subsidies announced this Thursday by the national government, in what they consider “revenge” for the failure of the Omnibus Law in the Chamber of Deputies. “It is a unit cut measure”, reproached Gabriel Bermúdez, responsible for the Transportation area of the Córdoba municipality.
If the elimination of the “Compensation Fund for Interior Transportation” is implemented, the current value of the ticket of 340 pesos could take an abrupt jump as companies need to update their rates to counteract the drop in the subsidy that covered a good part of the fare.

According to Bermúdez, without any type of subsidy, the ticket today would be 1,111 pesos, which is the technical value “after the increases in input costs and the parity of drivers in recent days,” he indicated.
However, according to calculations by transport businessmen grouped in Fatap, the reduction would force the urban transport ticket in Córdoba to increase by 100 pesos. So it would cost 440 pesos, as long as the Province and the municipality continue to provide subsidies from their coffers.
“People have to know that this measure impacts all users, students, workers, people who use transportation daily,” said the Secretary of Urban Mobility, in harmony with the mayor of Córdoba, Daniel Passerini. , who signed a statement together with mayors of the main cities rejecting the measure of Javier Milei’s government.
