Romania : Government transfers Metrorex to Bucharest Municipality

Bucharest Mayor Sorin Oprescu attended the Government meeting of 12 September 2012 where one of the decisions was the transfer of Metrorex from the suborder of the Ministry of Transport to that of Bucharest Municipality.

According to Mediafax press agency, the Prime Minister said that the discussion at the Government with the General Mayor of Bucharest on the takeover of the underground by the municipality has exceeded “the principle area” and has ensured that the state will continue to ensure subsidies and the development of the already initiated investments, such as the new section to Drumul Taberei. Also, the Metropolitan Transport Authority will be transferred to the municipality at the same time with Metrorex, the intention being that of introducing a single ticket for all transport means.

To this end, at the beginning of September, heading the Government meeting, Prime Minister Victor Ponta declared that “With the support of the Government and with own forces, the General Municipality has to decide on the prioritization of projects. First, we have to build the line to Drumul Taberei, and then, that to Pantelimon. Even if Metrorex is transferred in the suborder of the municipality, the company will continue to be financed from the state budget”, said Ponta.
