Among the issues that require settlement at the legislative level, Omeljan listed passengers safety and lack of control over income received by minibus drivers.

The minister said: "The problem is that we have a lot of so-called minibuses (marshrutkas) converted from freight vans, without any safety measures ... Unfortunately, we have a problem that a lot of minibuses are illegal, they do not pay taxes.

"In addition, drivers can cheat their employers, so we want to introduce a single electronic ticket," the minister added.
