Students, ex-combatants and people with disabilities will benefit from free social passes

It is already this year that students, former combatants and people with disabilities will benefit from free social passes to use public transport, subsidized by the executive. The announcement was made by Mário Pedro, chairman of the executive committee of the National Integrated Ticketing Company (ENBI), who was speaking this Friday, as part of a visit to Huíla to ascertain the degree of conditions for installing the national ticketing, issuing and pass management.


On the occasion, the official, quoted by Angop, explained that the document will have two categories of users: regular and social.

In the case of social passes, he indicated, users will enjoy benefits outlined by the Government to subsidize the price of public transport for citizens with special needs and veterans of the country, who will have a reduced cost, while for students the benefits will be the 100 percent.

Regarding users without benefits, the person in charge clarified that the advantage is related to the comfort with regard to the use of the electronic pass and also with the possibility of being able to enjoy a package of services that ENBI is preparing, such as the possibility to follow the bus route in real time, writes Angop.

With the introduction of the National Integrated Ticketing System, he added, the Executive wants to change the prism of demand, with a line being assigned to the operator and, at a certain point, being modified in a disorganized way.

Regarding the cost of the passes, he said that it is not yet possible to advance values: "We cannot yet advance the effective cost of the passes, as it is a matter that is being regulated in an Executive Decree of the Ministries of Transport and Finance, only then will we have the value", he said, quoted by Angop.

He also referred to the fact that ENBI will supervise, mainly, the issuance of passes with benefits that will be subsidized, in order to grant greater security and avoid fraud and abuse, writes Angop.

Cited by Angop, the official also added that the primary inspection of social passes is the responsibility of the institutions that protect the beneficiaries, having also added that the conditions have been created in the capital, both at a technical and logistical level, to start issuing passes , while in Huíla province the process should start around 60 to 90 days after Luanda.
