The Libertas bus company will, thus, renew its fleet with two articulated low-floor buses, six mini low-floor buses, seven mini urban-suburban buses, and three midi suburban buses. As many old buses will be taken off the roads.
Mayor Mato Franković announced that traffic around the historical old town will soon be restricted to vehicles of local residents and public transport.
“I believe that visitors to the city will choose Libertas as the simplest and easiest form of transport to the historical old town,” said Franković.
The bus company’s director, Franko Mekišić, said citizens will directly feel the benefit of the procurement because the buses meet the newest standards and ecological norms.
“This will reduce the overall age of vehicles from 12 to 9 years. We currently have 110 vehicles, 80 of which are in use. We are intensively working on absorbing certain EU funds in the coming period to procure more buses,” said Mekišić.
