The EBRD is financing major investments to improve public transport in Sarajevo, with CO2 emission reductions likely to exceed 30 per cent, in an effort to tackle the alarming air pollution in the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. A EUR 20 million loan will finance the overhaul of the 19.5 km-long dual-track tramline run by the cantonal public transport operator Gradski saobracaj d.o.o. Sarajevo. The current tram network is almost 50 years old and with no major improvements in decades it has deteriorated significantly. New tracks will improve the network and enable the purchase of new, cleaner trams.

The second EBRD loan, of up to EUR 15 million, will allow GRAS to buy up to 25 new electric trolleybuses. Together with the new tram tracks, the buses will improve the overall quality and comfort of public transport as well as the capacity and efficiency of the service. The upgraded trolleybus fleet will also consume approximately 50 per cent less electricity, resulting in significant cost savings and environmental benefits.
