Pensioners in Skopje to travel in public transport for free every Friday

Pensioners aged over 62 (women) and 64 (men) will use the public transport in Skopje free of charge every Friday, local media report.
Under Macedonian government’s decision, every Friday pensioners in the capital city will enjoy free public transport. They should not issue any public transport subscription cards but just show their ID cards to prove their age.
The initiative is financed by Skopje City through a subsidy for the municipal public transport company. The bonus given to pensioners will cost around MKD 25 million (EUR 1 = MKD 61).
