Tbilisi City Hall will open a tender in the coming days to purchase 300 new mini buses (marshrutkas) for the capital city with the money transferred from the state budget, Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze stated earlier today.

He said that Tbilisi City Hall had plans to fully replace the current, outdated fleet of mini buses. However, the economic crisis sparked by the coronavirus pandemic made it impossible for now.

Kaladze said that due to the pandemic Tbilisi municipality suffered about 150 million GEL in losses.

"We will receive funds as a transfer from the central budget and will be able to buy 300 buses at the first stage,” Kaladze said.
