Following the controversial decision of the Buenos Aires referee, Roberto Gallardo, on Wednesday you still have to pay in the subway, whether lifts or escalators work, The court decree states that the passenger will be exempted from paying the fee when entering a station where there is at least one equipment that does not work. And in case this is the point where your journey is over, Metrovías has to return the money. Gallardo gave the concessionaire and Subterráneos of Sbase to inform users about the malfunction and implement it by Monday 18. But the state-owned company will appeal the measure.
The court measure is given in the context of a case initiated by a person with a disability, but includes every passenger, whether you have movement difficulties.
However, in Sbase they say it will not be valid until Monday. While, to prepare the appeal for suspension of the decisionIf they fail, they explain, they will explore how to implement them.
