Croatian Bus Companies Still Facing Issues, Ticket Prices to Increase

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the a group of bus line carriers which belong to the Croatian Employers’ Association (HUP) has asked the Croatian Government to issue an identical conclusion that was recently obtained by the construction sector.

Namely, the Government pointed out in its explanation that the prices of certain raw materials used in the construction sector increased in price enormously, heading well into the double digits, and has made moves to make things easier on this enfeebled sector. The Croatian Employers’ Association has naturally welcomed the Government’s help in this matter, but has also pointed out that similar problems exist in other sectors – primarily those whose operations depend exclusively on the price of energy, which has exploded in recent weeks. For example, Eurodiesel prices are currently above eleven kuna.

Hrvoje Mestrovic, who is the president of the aforementioned group of individuals from within this Association, pointed out that Croatian bus companies will be forced to increase the prices of their services and their tickets, but the problem of already signed contracts for student transport remains a potentially enormous issue.

”When it comes to passenger transport, the key input is the cost of fuel and that is something which has really exploded, with predictions of even further growth. Croatian bus companies will soon not even be able to provide student transportation services they’ve previously agreed to undetake,” said Mestrovic.

Many companies operating within this particular industry feel well and truly ignored by the Croatian Government and this is far from the first time they’ve felt that way. It seems that as issues continue and recovery is made more difficult, the situation isn’t about to improve any time soon.
