BVG increases prices yet again…

When I left Berlin for a 3 month job in summer the price for a regular ticket for a bus or metroride was 2 Euro, which is in my perspective pretty expensive, but other things are expensive too, for example coffee in berlin mitte is at least 2,50 so I can live with 2 Euros per trainride. Now in September when I got back from D-Dorf it had risen to 2,10 which brings back that damned old “search for coins” game, that defenitely slowed down the process of buying a ticket, plus got busdrivers back into the “I dont take coppercoins” mode, as if that was no money. Now in November, I hear BVG plans to rise price again, this time to 2,30 which will turn the process of buying a ticket into a fight over coins and will make busdrivers even unfriendlier and I ask myself if that is possible and necessary. Whatever, I hereby publicly announce that I will turn into a fare dodger from now on, and if anyone knows of a program that prints out BVG-Tickets and if this application runs under Macos X/Linux…let me know.
