Europe’s largest transport provider may be involved in introduction of single route network in Armenia

YEREVAN, December 4. /ARKA/. Arriva, Europe’s largest transport provider, operating more than 20,000  buses across 14 European countries, is likely to help Armenian authorities in the introduction of a single passenger transport network.

Arriva’s CEO  Daniel Adamka had a meeting today with Armenian transport, communications and information technology minister Vahan Martirosyan in Yerevan to discuss this and other related issues, the transport, communications and information technology ministry said.

According to the ministry, Adamka spoke about his company's activities.  He was said to have expressed his readiness to participate in the introduction of a new transport system in Armenia. Martirosyan in turn was quoted as saying that the ministry would like Arriva to take part in a tender the ministry is going to announce for a pilot project to be carried out in one of Armenian regions.

A package of legislative amendments to the Law on Road Transport, envisaging  the introduction of a single route network in the country was approved by the government in October. It calls for the presence of one operator in each of the regions that will serve all routes, including those that are not profitable today. The pilot project is to be implemented in the Armavir region. To date, more than 100 communities in Armenia do not have a transport connection either due to bad roads or because of low passenger traffic. -0-
