Public Transport Most Expensive in Europe

zgtamsResidents of Croatia’s capital Zagreb comfortably still pay the most out of all of their European neighbours when they use public transport. Despite Monday’s 20% drop in ticket prices for the city’s trams and buses, Zagreb’s famous blue trams are still a lot more expensive than other cities, reports daily Vecernji list.

With the average monthly salary in the capital 6,400 kuna (900 EUR) and the price of a tram ticket now 10 kuna (1.30 EUR), Zagreb locals have to work 17 minutes to earn that ticket. For the same ticket in Vienna, which costs 16 kuna, the Austrians need only work 9 minutes, whilst in Rome, where tickets cost 1 EUR, residents need to work just 6 minutes to be able to afford a ticket on the city’s public transport system.

It is a similar situation when Zagreb’s prices are compared to other European cities. In Ljubljana and Prague, locals need to work 11 minutes, and 12 in the German city of Munich. One area the city has improved on however is the price of taxis. Once regarding as one of the most expensive cities in the region, competition from new players on the market has forced prices down considerably.
