New buses will be delivered to Bishkek in late March or early April. Nurlan Koichubakov, Director of the Bishkek Passenger Transportation Company, told at a press conference.
According to him, urban transport fleet has not been updated for more than ten years.
«We bought 69 buses at the expense of the budget. But we are not going to stop at this, we plan to purchase more. We are working on the issue,» he said.
