Unified route network to be established in Armenia to provide transportation services

YEREVAN, October 13. /ARKA/. An Armenian Cabinet meeting on October 12, chaired by Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan, endorsed a government’s legislative initiative on a package of bills to amend Armenia’s Law on Motor Transport and the Code on Administrative Offenses. If adopted, the bills will form a unified route network in the country, provide transportation services to all settlements, improve service quality and enhance safety in passenger transportation, the government press office said.

Prime Minister Karapetyan was quoted as saying that a legislative framework to regulate the new transport network is being created.  “We want to set up a transport network that will not leave any settlement out of the map. We will create lots where we can unite profitable and non-profit groups so that it may prove profitable for businesses. We are also planning to conclude long-term contracts so that the investor could be sure of having a long-term job and make an investment,” he said.

Asked about the timeline of introduction of the proposed network, Minister of Transport, Communication and Information Technologies Vahan Martirosyan noted that a pilot program will be implemented in one of the provinces, after which steps will be taken to apply it nationwide based on the results of the pilot program. According to the minister, the pilot program will be implemented over the next two to three months, while the introduction of the network will call for a year.

The Prime Minister urged him to have the preparatory work for the network introduction completed as soon as possible. “By the end of the first quarter, the whole network should have been examined based on the results of pilot programs. We will look into its logic, the contracts in effect and the timelines and we will state what kind of network and investors we will have and what opportunities it will offer.” -0-
