The loan is structured in two tranches: EUR 70 million and EUR 13 million.

The Project will finance the acquisition of a new bus fleet of approximately 200 modern 18-meter low-floor articulated compressed natural gas ("CNG") buses and the construction of a new depot for these buses.

The estimated cost of one bus is 350,000 EUR, or 1,300,000 GEL.
