Bratislava Gives Free Transport To Driving Licence Holders
In an effort to get people to use public transport and leave their cars at home more, all of this week Bratislava is offering free transport to anyone who holds a driving license.
The week-long campaign was launched yesterday in a gesture that will cost public transport over the short term, but might prove profitable over the long term as more people see the benefits of using public transport, instead of driving a few kilomtres to work, parking all day then driving the few kilometres back home.
The idea is part of European Week of Mobility involving over 1,000 cities in 33 countries. In Slovakia it only applies to driving licenses issued here and it cannot be used for night services or cross-border trips.
