Yet commercially available maps do not, and transport workers continue to sort out its relationship with the developers of the system and the city administration.
The fact that from March Rostov will ride public transport for plastic cards, during the January briefing, told reporters the Department of Transportation director of Rostov-on-Don, Gennady branding.
В«Today, technical devices equipped with 506 units of vehicles from 904, more than 50%, we plan from March 1 to start the system in trial operation. The system will initially operate on two companies - trolley "Ruseltransa and rolling stock ATP Transservice, only about 150 units. Prior to May 1 on all rolling stock system is implemented. By this time, will be issued to social maps ", - he said.

A few days later, in early February, the timelines for the implementation of the system in question put the leaders of the ATP: they refused to sign the agreement, describing the condition of non-cash bondage for himself, and demanded renegotiation of the agreement.
В«They have not simply refused, they had a number of observations. Powered Conciliation Commission, a six-point three already agreed by the end of February, I think, will be achieved mutual understanding "- described the progress made at a press conference on 18 February, the Deputy Mayor Victor Kocherga.
That work is still moving and clearing era is approaching, said, "animating" the device to receive virtual money. First on the yellow box flashed colored lights and in the last ten days of February of the installed trolley devices even seemed receipt.

Cards to pay the fare, highlighted in the bodies of social protection, on "Social card pensioner" will also be available from May 1, 2011. Following the turn - students.
В«We have handed over the money to produce cards, and for a long time, but it still did not give" - told mom class 10 student of one of the Rostov schools Elena.
However, the "mature" Whether clearing by May as soon as the card from the category of gifts will be the means of payment, is difficult to assess.
