Seven city-suburban semi-low-floor buses, financed through European Union funds, were presented yesterday at the headquarters of Dubrovnik public bus company, Libertas Dubrovnik.
These vehicles are 12 meters long, with a capacity of 76 passengers, with 44 seats.
This first delivery is part of a total of 18 new buses that Libertas Dubrovnik and the City of Dubrovnik procured through structural funds of the European Union through the Operational Program "Competitiveness and Cohesion" with co-financing of 85 percent.
"At the beginning of the first mandate, I said that the goal of this city administration in the segment of public city transport is to procure most of the buses using available funds from the European Union funds or other non-budgetary sources. In total, 35 new vehicles were acquired in these five years, which significantly increased the driving standard in public city transport," said Mayor Mato Franković.
The Mayor also said that despite the enormous increase in energy prices, especially fuel, the price of bus tickets would remain unchanged.
