The municipal enterprise "Nikolayevelektrotrans" plans to fill up up to the end park with five new trolleybuses and two trams. The director of the enterprise Andrey Kondratyev reported about it in interview to the correspondent of mk.mk.ua.
"Three years ago at the state level the decision on the program of updating of city electrotransport on all Ukraine was made. It means the following scheme of financing: if the local government digs up resources on acquisition of new equipment, additional resources according to the all-Ukrainian program are automatically allocated. Thus last year we bought three new trolleybuses and two tram K1 cars. This year the local budget to us allocated 5 million UAH for these purposes, and it means that we will be able to receive 5 million 200 thousand UAH on a state program, - Andrey Kondratyevtold
The cost of one trolleybus makes about one 1 million UAH, one tram car - 2 million 620 thousand UAH
Today in Nikolaev to the line 48 tram cars and 25 trolleybuses daily are issued. Ensuring normal transportation of passengers, requires 70 trolleybuses and 90 tram cars.
