Sadovyi promised to launch an electronic ticket in 2021

Since the electronic ticket was not successfully launched in 2021, the promise remained unfulfilled.

On December 21, 2021, it was announced that a full-fledged e-ticket would only be launched in the spring of the following year. Starting from January 13, 2022, the electronic ticket will be used for concession ticket holders in Lviv’s public transport. Other passengers who do not qualify for discounts will continue to pay their fares in cash.

Let’s recall the sequence of events:

As of December 17, 2020, the Lviv Administrative Provision Centre has already started accepting documents for the production of the concession electronic tickets. More than 8,000 people who are eligible for concession tickets had already submitted the necessary documents. All concession electronic tickets will be personalized and will contain the cardholder’s full name and photo. The issuance of concession holders cards is planned to begin by the end of February 2021.

As of August 13, 2021, 46% of Lviv’s public transport was already equipped with validators for the implementation of the electronic tickets. It was projected that the e-ticket would be activated in January 2022. As of August 2023, the electronic tickets have still not been implemented in Lviv.

On November 17, 2021, it was announced that three types of electronic cards would be introduced: General – for daily use, Personalized – for concession passengers and other social categories of citizens, and Tourist – for short-term trips.
