Palermo Mayor Leoluca Orlando: "Free bus for those who pay taxes"


Free bus to Palermo for those who are up to date with paying municipal taxes. The proposal was put forward by Mayor Leoluca Orlando during a meeting with the unions to take stock of the situation of the investee companies, which are in a critical financial situation. Orlando asked the AMAT, the company that manages public transport in the city, to do a simulation and give him a report as soon as possible to understand the feasibility of the initiative. The proposal is to guarantee free public transport to those who pay for the services, thus trying to combat the evasion of municipal taxes, starting with the waste tax. In fact, Tari has record percentages of evasion: more than one in three residents is in arrears among residents, an even higher figure concerns commercial establishments.
