The decision, adopted after months of pauses and interruptions in service in the Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires (AMBA), is based on the reasoning that It is a public service, “the provision of which the State must ensure in a general, continuous, regular, compulsory and uniform manner.”
In short, according to an internal report of the National Directorate of Automotive Passenger Transport, it was found that “some services have ceased to be provided in an untimely manner” recently.
“This situation poses a definite detriment to the interests of the users, resulting in loss of commitment made with the citizens regarding connectivity”, the recitation states.
for that reason, They want to take “necessary corrective measures” of “urgent and extraordinary” nature to “guarantee minimum benefit” of the groupsAnd avoid “undermining the interests” of users.
The plan to select companies to provide these emergency services would not comply with “normal and normal operator selection procedures”, given the need for immediate continuation of service, and the “short temporary validity that characterizes measures of suspension of service”. Is”.
These services would be invoked in the face of “various reasons” for suspension such as “union force majeure measures or employer lockout”.
In case you wish to apply for these extraordinary services, Businesses will have to continue to follow their existing operations And use the groups that are already registered in the mobile park base of the National Transport Regulation Commission (CNRT) that have SUBE sections established and operated.
In this sense, concessionaires may designate units for these exceptional services that are “in excess of the minimum fleet” approved in each of their existing permits.
At the same time, The regulation enables more than one operator to lend units to these suspended lines as long as the latter reaches a minimum number of units to operate.
transportation, while choosing these operators, Preference will be given to companies that have the most units that exceed the minimum fleet, with the aim being to damage lines that already operate as little as possible.
These authorizations will expire when the original holders of the lines lift the suspension of their services, and once that happens, the temporary operators must reassign their units to the services from which they were withdrawn.
Transportation Explained The implementation of these emergency services will not absolve the company due to which its service was suspended. and that, in the event of new measures of force majeure in the future, a communication from the field shall be sufficient to re-enable the provisional authorizations previously granted.
The CNRT and Transport, in turn, will post on their websites the emergency schedules that have been established when these special services are finally implemented.
