Buses and taxis will block downtown Sofia on Tuesday. In addition to the processions, the companies will stop intercity transportation for 2 hours from 10 am to 12 pm in the cities of Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Veliko Tarnovo, Pleven, Haskovo, Yambol, Ruse, Vidin, Blagoevgrad and Dobrich. writes Trud bg.
The reason for the dissatisfaction of the industry is the lack of measures by the caretaker government to adequately support the sector.
They are demanding compensation for rising fuel prices and wages, as the 60/40 measure is not working.
International carriers are also involved in the protest, as trucks will block the approaches to the Danube Bridge – 2 in Vidin and the Kapitan Andreevo border checkpoint.
We support the protest because nothing is being done for the road infrastructure, as the payments to the sector have stopped since May, said Hristo Radkov from the Bulgarian Drivers’ Union.
