After the city hall denied free tuition to students, the state government made an agreement with the municipal Executive to offer free tuition, which was only announced on Saturday (4). At the Terminal, this Sunday (5), many subscribers said they were unable to access the benefit because they were unable to print their receipts.
Participants in the capital will need to deliver copies of their registration receipt to the bus drivers for reporting to the SEE. For each trip, the registrant will need to deliver a copy, that is, one on the way out and one on the way back, totaling four copies on the two Sundays of the tests.
Mari Luana Lopes is 20 years old, lives in São Francisco and spent more than an hour at the bus stop in her neighborhood waiting for the bus. Afraid of being late, she paid R$6 for an Uber motorcycle to Terminal Urbano, in Rio Branco, to continue to Sobra, where she would take the test. She arrived at 7:50 am at the stop. As for the free gift, she was unable to use it because she saw it at the last minute.
“Actually, I had already seen yesterday that the bus was going to be free today, but it happened that, because I saw it at night, I was unable to print the receipt. I didn’t have time because I don’t have a printer at home and I would have to go to an internet café to make a copy. As I already had a bus pass, I used it,” she says.
She says she has been preparing for Enem and is going to try nursing. She already studies history, but wants to change her course. For the essay, she suggests that the topic should be related to education.
Jainy Gomes Silva, 20 years old, lives in Montanhês and had to go to João Eduardo I to take the test. She wants to try nutrition and this is the first time she has tried the test. She left home at 7:40 am and at 9:17 am she was still at the Terminal waiting for the bus.
“I heard about the free bus, but I couldn’t use it, so I paid to use the bus”, he says, explaining that he didn’t have time to print copies.
For the test, she said she was confident and didn’t want to risk a topic for the essay. “I’m hoping here, trusting that everything will be fine.”
