2. Granting subscriptions with a 90% discount for students from the Metropolitan Area
Oradea Local Transport in partnership with the University of Oradea based on art. 128 of Law no. 199 / 2023 grants to students enrolled in full-time education in accredited higher education institutions subscriptions with a reduced rate of 90% for transport in the Municipality of Oradea. OTL settles the 90% facility at the University of Oradea. For the metropolitan transport of students, the method of settlement was regulated by Methodological Norms for the approval of the methodology regarding the granting of transport facilities for students (no. 810 / 08.09.2023) which completes Law no. 198 / 2023. No Methodological Norms were issued for students which complements Law no. 199 / 2023, so that OTL cannot grant a 90% discount on the purchase of a metropolitan subscription. OTL is waiting for the regulation and is directly interested in directly granting the 90% facility for metropolitan subscriptions.
Due to the lack of the legislative framework, in some cities in Romania, students pay the subscription in full and turn to the Universities for settlement of the 90% facility.

Beneficiaries must attend the current courses of the accredited/authorized pre-university education units from the educational units of the Municipality of Oradea or the accredited higher education institutions, within the radius of the Municipality of Oradea and the age requirements must be respected (under 30 years old).
