The EBRD and the Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environment Partnership (E5P), have provided the financial means and know-how for the acquisition of 143 new compressed-natural-gas buses in Tbilisi.
These will take the place of the old polluting vehicles, which had no air conditioning and were unsuited to the needs of elderly or disabled passengers in Georgia’s capital.
The fleet has been renewed with low-floor, low-emission buses conforming to high safety standards, on a par with European Union regulations. They now run more frequently and reliably, reaching areas in the city that were previously not covered by any bus routes.
The EBRD is committed to help Tbilisi – ‘the City that loves you’ – become green, tourist-friendly and more modern.
