Sixty new Isuzu buses, purchased by Tbilisi Transport Company, have been presented by Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze. Remaining 160 buses will enter the capital city before the end of the year to replace outdated public transport.
“Our goal is to replace the yellow bus fleet as soon as possible. They are outdated, uncomfortable and are polluting the environment,” Kaladze said.
The Euro 6 standard, diesel buses have been produced by Turkish Anadolu Group.
The total cost of the project of all 220 buses is about $22 million.
Each bus has 21 seats for 53 passengers and is adapted for people with disabilities.
Buses are equipped with wireless Internet and modern heating and conditioning systems, as well as cameras.
Passengers will be able to charge their phones while traveling. (Agenda/Business World Magazine)
