UrBC, Yekaterinburg, October 22, 2015. Yekaterinburg Council intends to purchase fifty more new buses to add to its fleet of public transport vehicles, the city council’s press service reports.

This is the second tender the city council is holding this year; the idea is to get 46 to 47 buses on a lease. These buses need to have foreign-made engines and gearboxes, low-floor bodies, and large capacity and to run on natural gas.

‘We expect all the major Russian and the CIS suppliers such as MAZ, LiAZ, NefAZ, and Volzhanin as well as all the other large Russian and CIS bus manufacturers, to make their bids. I believe we provide equal competing ground for every applicant. All the specifications and requirements will be publicly available in a few days, and then we are ready to have our tender,’ says the city council’s Deputy Head for Strategic Planning, Economics & Finance Alexander Vysokinskiy.

The city council bought 58 low-floor MAZ buses this year. The best buses among the suppliers’ offers hit Yekaterinburg streets and the city council saved some 250m RUR.
