who will be able to use it from now on

The measure was agreed between Nation, Province and City. They seek to reverse the symptoms of excessive relaxation from the quarantine that are appearing

The SUBE card will be enabled only for people who provide essential services and are exempt from social, preventive and compulsory isolation due to coronavirus, reported this Friday the Ministry of Transport, as part of a series of measures agreed between the Nation, City and the province of Buenos Aires to improve social distancing in public transport.

The measure was agreed in a meeting that the holder of that portfolio, Mario Meoni, held with provincial and City of Buenos Aires authorities, as part of the monitoring of inter-jurisdictional public transport carried out since the beginning of the quarantine in order to take joint decisions.

Concern about quarantine at the AMBA

With the restriction on the use of the SUBE card, one of the possibilities of quarantine non-compliance in the Buenos Aires metropolitan area (AMBA) is strictly canceled. In fact, in recent days – especially after the last presidential announcements about the continuity of the quarantine with some relaxation of activities – an increase in the number of passengers on public transport was noted.

SUBE card restriction: public transport can be a source of contagion.

In addition, several television media made tours of populous towns in the suburbs and reported an unexpected relaxation of daily activities. All this happens at the same time that there is a rebound in the number of infections and deaths caused by the coronavirus pandemic. For this reason, during these hours the joint efforts of the Nation, Province and City intensify.

Transportation: seek more distance

In the meeting with the Minister of Transport, the AMBA districts coordinated actions to achieve greater distance in the public transport, through the incorporation of reinforcements in the collective services, was informed in a statement.

The Transportation portfolio held that work will be done to achieve greater control in train stations and accesses with personnel from the Ministry of National Security.

In this sense, he reported that controls on cars crossing accesses from different jurisdictions will be stricter and controls on passengers driving within buses will be strengthened.

“With the aim of reserving the use of public transport to personnel qualified as essential, the SUBE card will be enabled only for those who provide essential services and are excepted,” said the ministry that was agreed at the meeting.

The limit to the SUBE card seeks to avoid a relaxation of the obligatory isolation.
