“The majority of vehicles are made in South Korea. Recently, we also adopted a policy aimed at purchasing Chinese vehicles. We bought Yutong buses and found them very good. In this cold winter 100 percent of them run well,” said Shamzhan Makhamatov, head of Almaty Department of Passenger Transport Development.
Moreover, another 5.4 billion tenge (US$ 36 million) loan provided under a state guarantee is used for purchasing 200 new energy-efficient low-floor trolleybuses, which will replace the obsolete trolleybus fleet, reported Caspionet.
