It was about time someone posted a thread about Sofia's public transport...Great job
You know, I think that our machiens are a little bit out of date...The trams, the buses...they should be replaced with newer ones...Expecially those Icarus buses, eventhough they are rarely seen, they are still in use...

Yes, a lot of pics are missing today. On the bright side though - only nice pics are showing I saw some terrible stuff yesterday. Sofia needs a major fleet overhaul.

^If we're talking about trams and trolleybuses,then yes(almost all are 80s models).But ~65% of the buses are actually bought in the last 5 years and are modern.There are another 20%,90s models and the rest are those red Ikaruses from the 80s.

As far as I know we didn't buy any used buses from Sofia and we didn't sell any to Sofia either. I mean there are many similarities in both cities, look at my post above

Most busses in Sofia are made in Turkey (MAN & Mercedes). This explains the same color schemes and models.

We still export more to you than we import from you.

We have to see those "high speed" trains first.
