The EBRD is financing improvements to public transport in Novi Sad with the first project under the EBRD Green Cities program in an effort to tackle environmental challenges in the city. A EUR 7 million loan agreement, which was signed by the EBRD and the Public Transport Company of Novi Sad, will allow the company to purchase new buses that run on compressed natural gas, which, compared to diesel buses, significantly reduce pollution emissions.

This project is part of the wider ongoing bus fleet renewal, which the company started earlier this year. The CNG-powered buses financed by the EBRD will be in use from 2020 and they will contribute to the significantly improved quality, reliability and attractiveness of public transport.

The new buses will replace part of the old diesel bus fleet and will serve citizens on the busiest urban bus routes in the city, thus reducing CO2 emissions by at least 70 per cent. They will also be equipped with wheelchair lift access and allocated areas for disabled people.
