The sailboats will run on public transportation five days a week, Monday to Friday, the weekend being reserved for recreational travels, which will be carried out with a boat. The value of a boat travel will be 1 RON, and the tickets will be bought from an employee of S.T.P.T., each boat having a cash register. Social categories benefiting from free local public transportation services will travel free of charge.
