The Community of Madrid will reduce the price of the public transport season ticket for 14,000 users in Rivas Vaciamadrid in March
The Community of Madrid will reduce the price of the Public Transport Card (Tarjeta de Transporte Público, TTP) for 14,000 users in Rivas Vaciamadrid from 15 March. Thanks to the combination of the B2 and B1 fare zones, which will come into force from that date, the cost of this card will drop from €28.8 to just €25.4 per month.
Today, the Regional Minister of Transport, Mobility and Infrastructure, David Pérez, announced this decision in the Plenary Session of the Madrid Assembly, in which the regional government will invest more than €300,000 per year, which was adopted on 30 January at the meeting of the Madrid Regional Transport Consortium (Consejo Regional de Transportes de Madrid, CRTM). On 1 February, the 60% reduction in the price of monthly public transport tickets approved by the Community of Madrid also came into force, 10% more than what the central government had established in order to make its contribution effective. With these new fares, the Youth Season Ticket –under 26 years of age– costs €8; the A €21.80; the B1 €25.4; the B2 €28.8, and the unified zone B3-C1/C2 €32.8.

disability of more than 65%, it is 20%.
