From September 22, 90 new minibuses and 20 new buses are to operate in Tbilisi, stated the Mayor of the capital Kakha Kaladze at the Wednesday meeting of the Tbilisi Municipality.
Kaladze noted City Hall has now completed the bus renewal-replacement program. However, there are still areas where public transport is unavailable.
“Knowing this, we decided to introduce an additional 380 new buses in the city. 180 of these units will be eight-meter, and 200 – 18-meter, which we will buy next year. 20 extra buses are already in the capital and will start operating from September 22. We have also started a program to upgrade and replace the minibuses. 90 new minibuses have arrived and will start working from September 22. Changes are implemented so that no street is left without public transport. It should be accessible and comfortable for everyone,” Kaladze said.
