Even with this potential opening date in mind, future users still do not know how much they will have to pay for the ticket. It is known that the metro received a grant for $20 million dollars, which is included in its 2014 budget.
The Minister of Economy and Finance, Frank De Lima, commented that this subject has not yet been discussed, but the SMP is carrying out a price elasticity study to determine an optimum fare that guarantees profitability for the system operators while affordability for its riders.
The SMP is still negotiating with the company Mi Bus to settle on an integrated fee for users of both systems.
The ticket price will be established by the end of the year, upon a study of integrated routes and the final government subsidy allocated, in which the higher the amount provided, the lower the cost to the passenger.
An additional topic pending analysis is a proposal by Mi Bus to redesign certain routes along areas where the Metro will not pass by, in order to bring people closer to the station in smaller buses.
