Poltava is the first Ukrainian municipality to benefit from the joint European Bank for Reconstruction and Development’s “Ukraine Public Transport Framework II” programme by procuring 40 new energy-efficient and ecologically friendly trolleybuses.
The project will be the first investment under the new €250 million programme, recently approved by the Bank’s Board. The investment programme will benefit from almost €450,000 in grant support provided by the EU Municipal Project Support Facility.
The trolleybuses will have improved accessibility and will be up to 25% more energy efficient than current vehicles. Their introduction will also help reduce black carbon and nitrous oxide emissions.
