The Government spokesperson and Minister for Territorial Policy, Isabel Rodríguez, encouraged the autonomous communities this Tuesday to “follow by example” the Executive’s commitment to improving public transport to save CO2 emissions and have an impact positive in the spending of less wealthy families. Specifically, she Rodríguez has encouraged the autonomies to maintain their discounts while she has not specified whether those approved by the Executive will be maintained beyond June 30. This is as established in the royal decree-law on aid for the consequences of the war in Ukraine.

Specifically, Rodríguez explained that “the decree is under review and that, based on economic indicators and circumstances, we will assess it at the appropriate time.” They have until June 30 to define themselves, right at the gates of the next electoral campaign. For the voice, the foregoing “does not imply that autonomous communities and town halls cannot continue to commit to improving the public transport environment in a very timely direction, towards saving emissions and the income of working families”.

This contribution is also conditional on the autonomies contributing an additional 20%.
