The main loser is public transportation: Last year, Fidesz’s Modern Cities Program Coordinator promised 10 billion Ft, but a penny of that hasn’t been seen in Szeged yet. Instead, what you have if the pre-pandemic system is not restored is slowly slowing down.

Last November, he told a deputy mayor, who will find the municipal gate minus another 8 billion HUF, Two weeks ago, Sándor Nagy, Deputy Mayor of Urban Development, filled the deficit of over 10 billion HUF. On your Facebook page. The cause of the deficit is primarily government withdrawals, while local Fidesz is campaigning for 30-50 million forints for cultural institutions and Vadaspark.

The deficit is growing by 15 million HUF daily, and it is not yet clear where it will stop, as it is not known exactly how the government will decide free parking in the future by prolonging the state of emergency. (We know from unofficial sources that the mayors of Fides also want to restore the paid system.) This single element also means losing hundreds of millions in Sejed, but also the known withdrawals and forced breakage of the municipal cultural institutions make a big hole in the budget.

Public transportation has also been affected by the withdrawal of state aid and the fact that it operates in a reduced manner for weeks due to school breaks, and the revenues of the parking department operating within the public transport company have stopped due to free parking. In Szeged, vehicle renewals scheduled for 2017 may also stop, as another refurbished trolleybus was launched on Thursday, but due to lack of money, there will be no paint or electronics to repair the new vehicles. According to Sandor Nagy, Szeged Transport Company’s daily maintenance solution is also difficult.

Last February, Csaba Bartók, Szeged’s Coordinator for the Modern Cities Program, and local Fidesz head, announced that the government would push forward the 7 billion HUF public transport development signed in 2017 worth 3 billion HUF., The development will be withdrawn from the municipality, but in coordination with the state-owned company Volán, local transportation will be greened and the entire vehicle fleet will be replaced by electric buses. Silence now reigns over greening, so far no new buses have entered Sajed, but the city’s program, which reached public procurement last year, had to be stopped, as one of the tram lines had to be renewed. There are no new electric buses now, but the city cannot slowly acclimate to existing trams and rickshaws either.
