In the last five years, we have upgraded our trolleybus fleet by more than 40%. Cooperation with European partners in the field of improving passenger traffic is very important for us. As part of the project with the EBRD, we have already received 43 of the 54 trolleybuses. By the end of August, 11 more units will be sent to the city (the last of the expected party). In parallel, we are working on the issue of updating the tram fleet. In partnership with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), it is planned to purchase 50 new trams and build silent tram tracks on Sobornosti Street.”
