Good news

July 17, 2009

Today, I learned from a friend, who works in city mayors office, that soon Bishkek’s public transport system will be enriched by 150 new Chinese-made buses and couple dozens of handicap-friendly Belarus-made trolleybuses. Another good news is that Chinese-made buses are bought for a grant money by China kindly given to Kyrgyzstan (if I am not mistaken, it is 5 mln CNY).

Finally, we are getting rid of these damn marshrutkas… (marshrutka – a small minibus, often remade to fit as many passengers as possible, often too dirty and stinky, often too crowded, often creates road accidents and traffic jams , as it stops anywhere you hail it)
