Courts of three instances supported OFAS position that the monopolist cannot set different tariffs to carriers for teller services


The Arbitration Court of the North-West District pronounced legitimacy and reasonableness of the decision and order issued by St Petersburg OFAS to “Passazhiravtotrans” St Petersburg State Unitary Enterprise.


Earlier, St Petersburg OFAS found that “Passazhiravtotrans” had abused its dominance and violated Clause 6 Part 1 Article 10 of the Federal Law “On Protection of Competition”. “Passazhiravtotrans” thought that the longer the route, the more expensive the ticket is, so carriers also should pay more for selling such tickets at ticket windows in the bus terminal ( Build. A., 36, Ovbodny Canal Embankment, St Petersburg). The antimonopoly body revealed, however, that this approach does not reflect the actual costs of “Passazhiravtotrans” for providing the service.


St Petersburg OFAS issued an order to “Passazhiravtotrans” to set the unified, economically justified tariffs to teller services regardless of the route length.


“Passazhiravtotrans” disagreed with the decision and order of the antimonopoly authority and filed a lawsuit. Arbitration Courts of three instances recognized legitimacy and reasonableness of OFAS measures.
