Government Warns of No Subsidy for Passengers Without SUBE


The Argentine government released an ad campaign informing that after 10 February bus passengers who do not pay for their tickets with a SUBE card will not get subsidised. Official authorities have not yet disclosed the price of bus and train tickets without the subsidy.

“From 10 February on, if you want to travel by train or bus in the metropolitan area and you do not have a SUBE card, you are going to miss on the subsidy and your ticket will be more expensive,” says an official advertisement from Casa Rosada.

“But if you have your SUBE card, you are going to pay the same you are paying today.” The advert also warns passengers: “For a while now we have been telling you to get your SUBE card. If you have not done it, do it now.”

The announcement has already caused long queues in both train and bus stations to get the card today.
Fernando Blanco Muiño, president of the Argentine Consumers Union (UCA), said the implementation of the SUBE cards in public transportation is developing in an “unorganised and uninformed” way.

Muiño also claimed that an increase in bus and train tickets is “almost certain”.
