The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has regulated the introduction of electronic tickets in the urban public transport. With 226 votes required, 265 MPs voted for draft law No.4121 at first reading, Ukrainian News Agency reports. The draft law entitles bodies of local self-government to introduce electronic tickets in the urban public transport and the rules of functioning of the system. The draft law also increases fines for fare evasion. As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Infrastructure Ministry is hoping to introduce e- tickets in public transport in 2017.
