Project "Integrated urban transport of Blagoevgrad" is prepared on the basis of an integrated territorial approach, aimed at the continuous improvement of the vital, environmental and economic conditions in Blagoevgrad and the municipality as a whole, by presenting measures and implementing activities related to the improvement of the services of the public transport. The project is based on a selected alternative solution that finds its truthful and precise legal framework in the updated feasibility study and financial analysis. The project consists of three investment components, two of which are as follows: - Comp. 1: Purchase of 6 electric buses and 3 twin charging stations - Comp. 2: Investing in the construction of an electronic traffic management system and a real-time information system for passengers that will improve the urban mobility, increase road traffic safety, enhance the efficiency of the existing infrastructure and contribute to reducing the environmental pollution through controlling the traffic flows and traffic volume.
Total project cost: EUR 2 880 959; Grant: EUR 2 233 961; Own funding: EUR 646 998.
The project can be considered a good practice not only because of the purchase of electric buses and installation of charging stations, but also because of its holistic approach.
