The travel cards for pensioners and students will be cheaper

All children up to 10 years of age will travel for free on public transport in Bulgaria from February 1. The discount on the price of student travel cards is increased from 20% to 70%, and on seniors travel cards - to 40%.

The reductions will come into effect after today the Council of Ministers approved additional funds of BGN 73 million to support the "public transport" service throughout the country. They will be in force until the end of 2023, Transport Minister Hristo Alexiev announced on Wednesday.
