Why are prices increasing?

Prices in Cluj-Napoca were previously increased by 25% in 2018. CTP, the company which operates the public transport services in Cluj-Napoca, explained that the increase of prices comes in response to the fact that electricity supply prices increased by 135.8%, ie from 405.90 lei mWh to 957.23 mWh.

In a statement, CTP management said,

This increase in the purchase price leads to an increase in electricity costs for passenger transport activity in the municipality compared to November 2021 as follows: by 110.03% in December 2021, by 178% in January 2022 and by 74.46% in February 2022. Another element of expenses with growth forecast in 20222 is the expenditure on fuels, where the company estimates an average increase of 37.8% compared to the budget estimate.

When analysing the material expenditures, directly influenced by the increase of inflation, it is estimated an increase of approximately 2 million lei compared to the budget estimate. The total eligible costs of the company in November 2021 were 10.46 million lei, of which, at a number of 11,605,982 trips and taking into account a reasonable profit of 32,605 lei, it generated an average cost per trip of 0.9 lei. The increase by 14.30% of the total costs in December 2021 compared to November 2021 generated an average cost per trip of 1.06 lei
