“The new rates are necessary for the functioning of the services, ensure their operation, their maintenance and also support the salary of the workers of each of the systems,” argued the City Government. These services have fixed costs that are periodically adjusted according to inflation. In this inflationary context, different inputs of the sector such as fuel, insurance, verifications and also the salaries of the workers of the sector are affected ”.

Regarding the metered parking, the increase is 50%: the hour goes from $ 30 to $ 45. The hauling of infringing cars also reported a sharp rise, 45%, and rates went from $ 4350 to $ 6525.
The highways covered by the increase are the 25 de Mayo, Perito Moreno, Illia and Alberti. In addition, the Paseo del Bajo is included, which concentrates heavy traffic and long-distance buses. The raises are 45%.
Peak hours are Monday through Friday from 7am to 11am and from 4pm to 8pm, in both directions; and on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 11 to 15 towards Province and from 17 to 21 towards the center. The new values are (to pay with TelePASE): on the 25 de Mayo and Perito Moreno highways, the toll for automobiles ranges from $ 148.22 to $ 215; on the Illia Highway, from $ 61.03 to $ 88.50; on the Alberti Highway, from $ 41.85 to $ 60.68.
At the hour not considered peak, the rates are as follows: 25 de Mayo and Perito Moreno highways, $ 151.71; Illia, $ 63.21; Alberti highway, $ 48.04; Paseo del Bajo, heavy traffic or long-distance buses pay a single rate that amounts to 47%, from $ 135.63 to $ 199.66.
Since this year, AUSA highways They have a single rate table to pay with TelePASE. Users who do not have the TelePASE device until now must pay an administrative charge equal to twice the value of the corresponding toll for the time, station and category of the vehicle, but there will be a change during the course of the month.
The mandatory conversion to TelePASE was implemented at the end of 2020 and, today, almost nine out of 10 users have this payment method. However, almost 2% of the users without TelePASE circulate on the exclusive green routes, delaying the circulation of the interns who do have this method. In these spaces there are no longer any ATMs in booths, so every time a car enters the greenways a person has to come to make the payment in the booths, delaying operational dynamics and affecting fluidity.
For this reason, as of Saturday, January 29, those who circulate through the exclusive electronic payment routes (greenways) and do not have TelePASE or have it disabled they will pay four times the value of the fare. For example, that on the Perito Moreno highway in rush hour they will pay $ 860 instead of $ 215.
In addition, the Ecobici system will have an increase of between 40% and 70% according to the modality, the user’s residence and their origin.
