New Uzhgorod buses: routes, comfort and capabilities (PHOTOS)
The first two new buses with a high passenger capacity were presented today on Narodna square.
The buses purchased at the expense of the city budget for the newly established utility "Uzhgorod Municipal Transport" were assembled by the Lviv Joint Ukrainian-German Company "ElektronTrans" Ltd. according to modern European smart standards for passenger comfort. The Cummins diesel engines of the environmental class EURO 5 were manufactured in the UK.
The total capacity is 102 people. When approaching a bus stop, the driver can stop very close to the curb and even lower the floor down to 8 centimeters. The middle doors are designed to accommodate young children and people with reduced mobility.
Inside, there are comfortable seats, a separate place for people on wheelchairs, with a folding plate, which can be fixed with a belt and leaned on.
Fire extinguisher and tools to be used for emergency exit are clearly visible.
The stops are displayed on the indicator board. The driver's station is comfortable and functional.
Today, citizens tested the comfort of the new buses by taking a ride from Narodna Square across the Masaryk transport bridge to the roundabout near the "Uzhgorod" hotel and back to Narodna Square.
The next 3 of the purchased buses should arrive to Uzhgorod next week, and another 5 - a few days after that. They will start carrying passengers in October. The utility won the tender for the routes 18 and 20. Recall that the route №18 will run from the most populated Novy neighbourhood of Uzhgorod via the railway station, Mukachivska street, Sandor Petofi and Koryatovich squares to the BAM.
Photo album "Uzhgorod", which was made by people in love with their city, will be presented tomorrow (ANNOUNCEMENT)
