The requirement of the state about introduction of electronic system of the account of number of passengers of public transport in Daugavpils cannot fulfill yet.

This was announced by First Vice Mayor Alexei Vasilyev live on the Dialogue with the City program.

According to the vice-mayor, Daugavpils is currently the only city in Latvia that has not yet introduced an electronic system for registering passengers using preferential travel. It was planned to introduce an electronic accounting system as early as January 1 next year, but the innovation will still have to wait.

As Aleksey Vasiliev explained, the government still cannot clearly formulate the criteria that must be met.

«All devices that read information from the cards that we will issue to beneficiaries, all the software are very expensive. First, let the state clearly formulate what it wants from the self-government so that we do not waste taxpayers’ money: we cannot risk half a million euros of people’s money. Therefore, the introduction of an electronic accounting system was postponed until about the beginning of 2024.“, – explained Alexei Vasiliev.

According to the Vice Mayor, work is now underway to ensure that all beneficiaries of Daugavpils urban public transport have a QR code similar to the one in covid certificates.
