Draft resolution n. º 533/X/4.  ª Recommends to the Government the ap draft resolution n. º 533/X/4.  ª Recommends to the Government the application of incentive measures is utilization of ferrovià transport is in line with the Minho, namely on binding of Barcelos in the harbor and North Line; Also recommends the extension of the Intercity train to Braga, Famalicà and Babu.

The promotion of utilization of ferrovià transport is a part, increasingly, a controversial practice that mobility correctly if you want to for our paà s. Unfortunately little has been done to achieve this objective, in particular where the ferroviÃ, infrastructure already exists and therefore well justified a warning more carefully to the makers of Poland transport policy level. The line of Minho is a case paradigmà static that neglect public, perpetrated by a desadequaà of times, which gradually gone by crystallizing, and practices are illegal tarifà deceptively. In the case of the Line is the city of Barcelos is maximum exponent of abandonment on the part of the Central Administration. In fact the County and the city are served by the railway but the use of trains for the barcelenses is a sujeià and is not an option, being a municipality with more than 124,000 inhabitants (the fourth most populous North of the Douro) does not have a link in appropriate ferrovià is the city of Porto and Northern line. On average Barcelos is served by fourteen trains on its binding to the port and, consequently, Northern line. Are the eight regional trains (with change in Nine), five regional and one interregional straight to the port. The price of the tickets is located 3.20 us â € ‚ (regional), â ‚ € 3.50 (regional) and 3.75 â ‚ ¬ (inter-direct regional).

Naturally, the situation leads us to compare is the city of Braga. ‰ is served daily by trains to 25 accruing the four Alfas. The cost of the trip, with better quality of rolling stock, without the need to change trains and with distance in 6 km is of Barcelos-Port is 2, ‚ 15â €. Is this evidence that the change in tarifà approved by CP is not corrected the injustices practiced on binding the Barcelos-Port leading up to is aberraà of the trip cost Cambeses Barcelos-1, 20 € ‚, cost 2, ‚ 30â € now. The cost is worsened in almost 100%. Of course, the solution to this situation going on for what, since the numerous cio of denà º of tarifà is illegal, the Social Democratic Party defended: the integration in the Urban service port binding Barcelos-Porto. In addition, there is question tarifÃ, the desarticulaà of the absolute that exists between trains linking the city of Braga to Lisbon (Alpha-commuting) and the Minho. à ‰ imperative that such trains do stop at Nine am allowing (after ³ s adjustment of schedules in the Minho, that the Council be served by µ s links to Lisbon, taking the barcelenses this transportation from their city and not having to travel to Braga, the Famalicà or the port. Of the above becomes clear the need to provide is the population of Babu ferrovià service is suitable is today in terms of mobility, in environmental terms and in economic terms ³ monkeys. Becomes also necessary to serve the city of Barcelos, as happened at numerous cio of the Decade of 90, with success, with the Intercity trains. Being a convoy targeted at young people and students, do not understand why Barcelos, Famalicà and even Braga, does not have binding µ s with the Intercity trains. As if € œ â comboioâ said €  should be an option and not a sujeià to anyone who does not have own alternative transport for own ³ Oporto or has, for example, to use buses that take about 2 hours of long journeys with stops in the ³ flies do Varzim or FamalicÃ.

Is ‰ this unfortunate situation as is the city of Barcelos and Braga district, in the case of the ferrovià transport, by which in accordance with the rules and applicable central, the Assembly of the Republic, gathered in PlenÃ, recommends to the Government the following: 1-that is the integration of the journey Barcelos-Port in Urban Trains of Porto Thus tarifÃ, parity with the other three major towns in the district; 2-that is the binding of the Minho in Nine trains Alpha, making a stop at that station and articulating the times of trains side; 3-who is creating the Intercity train to Braga, Barcelos and FamalicÃ.
