In January 2014, a total of 307,936 cards were used - an increase of 13.8 percent on previous months. According to data provided in January 2014, 596,000 transport cards were issued. Of them 299,644 were given to members of the public for free transport rides, 72,000 for pensioners' free rides, and 3414 - for schoolchildren who are also entitled to free public transport. A total of 375,000 persons use the public transport for free, and 96,000 persons pay for a ride with a banking card.
