40 new, eight-meter ISUZU diesel buses have entered Tbilisi earlier today, bringing the project of 220 ISUZU buses to an end.

The project is complete. Tbilisi already has modern and comfortable, 220 ISUZU eight meter buses, Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze has stated.

He said that the completion of the project does not mean Tbilisi will not have new buses in the current or following years.

In May-June-July of 2020 12-meter buses will enter Tbilisi and then we will launch the project of 18-meter buses,” Kaladze said, adding that the streets having no public transport in Tbilisi will have them, while busy streets will receive additional vehicles.

Kaladze said that modern, fast and comfortable public transport will ease traffic and provide improvements against pollution.

The ISUZU buses Kaladze presented earlier today are of Euro-6 standard, having 21 seats for 53 passengers. 

The busses are adapted for people with disabilities, have wireless internet, modern air conditioning and heating systems, USB chargers, anti-vandal systems and are equipped with cameras.
