Purchase of higher passenger capacity electric public transportation vehicles

Mykolaiv Development Agency

Mykolaiv public transportation problems

Absence of connection of remote areas and districts of the city

All transportation go through main (Central) avenue overloading traffic on it.

All the transportation in the city is organized using small buses of low quality, what decreases the level of passengers` safety

Most of the buses are equipped with old diesel engines of Euro 2 or Euro 3 standards, what leads to the big amount of harmful emissions to the air

Ways to resolve the problems

Creation of the routes, that connect 5 most remote points of the city.

Usage of busses of high passenger capacity will allow making it efficient and comfortable for citizens.

Usage of parallel to Central avenue streets for public transportation. This will decrease the traffic on main streets and will improve the safety situation on the roads.

Organization of transportation using big busses (80-100 passengers total) will raise the efficiency of public transportation and will allow providing services for people with special requirements.

Organization of transportation using eco buses or trolleybuses with autonomous drive system ensuring 50 km trip outside the electrical network. Zero emissions from public transport.

In order to optimize the transport system, Mykolaiv has to purchase 20 trolley buses (with batteries), 10 electrical eco buses with fast-recharging stations and install an automatic system of passengers record*.

Approximate costs needed 9 700 000 Euro (vehicles and recharging stations)

150 000 Euro (system of passengers record)

Electronic payment terminals will be installed in every bus. This will make the payment procedure much easier and will allow analysing the flow of passengers.

This way we will be able to optimize the routes and amount of vehicles needed on the route.
