Yekaterinburg will buy 500 new public transportation vehicles for 2018 World Cup
The vehicles are expected to be low-floor vehicles fitted with air conditioners, video recorders, heaters and GPS GLONASS, Ural Business Consulting reports.
The committee was set up to prepare for the transportation needs of the upcoming soccer tournament.
Evgeny Lipovitch, the deputy mayor of Yekaterinburg for Urban Development, Transport and the Environment, requested that local transportation experts create specific proposals and come up with a program for buying the new vehicles.
The local government plans to spend $127.4 million on the renovation of the public transportation fleet in the next five years. The vehicles will mostly circulate throughout the city center and on the routes around the railways station, the airport and Central Stadium, Ural Business Consulting reports.
