Two SOLARIS URBINO 12 city buses were presented in Vinnytsia, which were handed over by the sister city of Kielce. Today, September 2, Mayor Serhii Morhunov inspected the buses and talked with the specialists of the transport company, who will prepare the buses for further operation in accordance with domestic standards.

"It was the Kielce Transport Company, which turned 15 years old this year, that took the initiative to give us two Solaris buses," says the Mayor Serhii Morhunov. "We are connected with Kielce by sisterly relations, which are already 64 years old. And for us, this is timely help, because we gave some transport for the needs of the front."

One such bus is equipped with 30 seats, and the total passenger capacity is up to 100 people. Low-floor buses, equipped with a special assembly area with a place for a wheelchair, a retractable ramp. Also - climate control, autonomous heating, information board and exterior mirrors with electric adjustment.

"The buses were overhauled and, according to the available information, they will be able to work for at least three years without repairs," said Pavlo Yablonskyi, the Chairman of the City Council. "These buses are fully adapted for people with disabilities. They are also equipped with internal video surveillance and an electronic scoreboard."

"In Poland, the engine and undercarriage were overhauled - that is, they are absolutely usable," says Mykhailo Lutsenko, general director of Vinnytsia Transport Company. "Their advantage is reliability and quality, because if the bus has been in use for a certain time and there is no significant corrosion or damage in it, this means that they will run for more than one year." He added that appropriate procedures for registration and certification of transport in accordance with Ukrainian standards will be carried out.

We remind you that the Polish sister city systematically helps Vinnytsia. Recently, the city of Kielce handed over four DJI Mavic 3 quadcopters. Also, the authorities of the sister city organized four shifts of recreation for about 200 children from Vinnytsia. In addition, as part of the aid from the city of Kielce, the Vinnytsia Coordination Humanitarian Headquarters received over 160 tons of humanitarian aid, including: medicines, food, beds, mattresses, sleeping bags, batteries, power banks, etc.
