In the near future, they will go on capital routes.
Four Mercedes buses were transferred to the Ukrainian capital by the transport companies of Hamburg and Halle. Public transport from Germany met today, April 13 Mayor of Kyiv Vitaliy Klitschko. He inspected all the buses and talked to the drivers.
“These modern low-floor buses are equipped with a video surveillance system and Wi-Fi. Three of them are the ones I arranged during my recent visit to Hamburg. Another bus arrived from the German city of Halle. After appropriate registration, this passenger transport will enter the routes of the capital in the near future,” Klitschko said.
He recalled that during his recent visit to Hamburg, he discussed the issue of aid to Kyiv during the war with the mayor of that city, Peter Chencher. In particular, Klitschko noted that the Ukrainian capital needs to increase the rolling stock of city transport and special transport for communal services.
“We will gradually “displace” outdated minibuses and launch modern transport so that Kyiv residents and guests of the capital can reach their destination as quickly and comfortably as possible,” said Klitschko.
The mayor of Kyiv thanked the German partners who provide the necessary assistance in such difficult times for Ukraine.
Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Kyiv has received 76 passenger buses from European partners, the vast majority of which are already operating on the capital’s routes.
Also, 40 modern ambulances and 40 fire engines were donated to the capital. In December 2022, Kyiv sent two firefighting vehicles to Kharkiv, which is under constant shelling.
