The Rehabilitation of the Ropeway at Tutle Lake Will be Completed in August

Quote:
Dwellers of Tbilisi and the tourists will be able to ascend to Turtle Lake (Kus Tba in Georgian), a recreational zone with a small lake on the top of a hill at the outskirts of the city, by a renovated cable-car from August. The old one was closed since 2009 and the only way to get to the top of the hill was by car, transport or on foot that was extremely hard to do during hot summer days. The restoration works started by Tbilisi City Hall’s initiative. In total 1.1 million Georgian Laris were spent on the project. The renovated cable car will easily take the passengers up the hill from Chavchavadze Avenue just in 5-6 minutes.

The renovated cable car is expected to reduce road traffic to the lake during the hot summer season, when lots of people escape the hectic city life and look for relaxation. In addition, the main advantage of the new cable car is that it will completely meet the needs of people with disabilities and also equipped with bicycle suspension facilities. The tender concerning about its rehabilitation was announced in last year. As a result, L.T.D”Bagirmsheni” became a winner.

The original Turtle Lake cable car was built in 1966 and was designed by famous engineer Vakhtang Lejava. The upper station is located at 700 meters above sea level and the distance between the two cable-car stations is around 1140 meters.

700 new bus stops for Georgia’s capital Tbilisi

Quote:
Waiting for a bus in Georgia’s capital city will soon be more comfortable thanks to an initiative to install 700 new bus stops offering shelter, seating and informative displays.

The modern bus stops will be constructed at existing stops that are currently without shelter or seating areas, said Tbilisi City Hall today while announcing the initiative.

Tbilisi City Hall revealed local company Alma-Transport will install the new bus stops. The company will begin works in about a month’s time and have until May 2017 to complete the job.

The company will spend about five million GEL (about $2.24 million USD/€1.98 million*) building and installing 700 modern bus stops throughout Tbilisi.

Thousands of Tbilisi locals and guests used the public bus service in Tbilisi each day. Many of the existing stops were without adequate shelter or seating areas.

Tbilisi City Hall said the new bus stops will measure 3-5m long and 1.3m wide, and be big enough for people in wheelchairs or with other disabilities.

Additionally, each new bus stop will have an LED screen, where messages or advertisements will be shown.

Tbilisi airport gets 24 hour bus service, ticket price 22 US cents
by DFWATCH STAFF | Jul 5, 2016

Quote:
TBILISI, DFWatch–Tbilisi international airport is now serviced all night through by the regular daytime bus line number 37, Tbilisi City Hall informs.
Before the new schedule on July 4, line 37 had been operating until midnight, like other municipal bus lines in the capital.But now line 37 will have departures every 35 minutes through the night.
Ticket prices during the all-night schedule will be the same as during the day, which is 50 tetri (22 US cents, 20 euro cents). This is good news for travellers on flights that arrive or depart in the middle of the night who don’t want to spend extra money on a taxi into town.
Apart from budget prices, travellers may also enjoy roomier 36 seat buses that are a gift to Tbilisi from the city of Istanbul.
The route will remain the same: Main railway station, Heroes Square, Melikishvili Street, Rustaveli Avenue, Freedom Square, Kakheti highway and Tbilisi airport.



The buses are a gift from the city of Istanbul. (Tbilisi City Hall.)

Tbilisi to welcome energy efficient buses from September

Agenda.ge,12 Jul 2016 - 12:48, Tbilisi,Georgia

Quote:
Georgia’s capital Tbilisi is overhauling and modernising its public bus fleet to reduce vehicle emissions and curbing rising pollution levels caused by old, deteriorating buses.

From September this year new blue buses will operate in Tbilisi thanks to an agreement signed between one of the leading international providers of commercial vehicles, the Man Truck and Bus AG Company.

The agreement stated in the next seven months a total of 143 new buses will be added to the Tbilisi auto park, while the first blue buses will appear in the streets of the city in September.

The new buses will run on compressed natural gas (CNG), meaning they are more energy efficient, produce reduced vehicle emissions and are cheaper to operate than diesel-equivalent buses.

As well as being more efficient and economical, the new buses are also ideal for bio fuels – CO2-neutral.

Tbilisi City Hall announced all new buses will be adapted for people with disabilities.

Georgia’s capital will enjoy new buses thanks to financial support from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

Georgia’s Finance Ministry penned a deal about the new buses with the EBRD in May this year.

The agreement noted the EBRD would grant €27 million to Georgia to introduce new busies this year. In addition, the Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environment Partnership promised to grant €7 million to Georgia to purchase CNG-operated buses.

In total Georgia received two grants totalling €34 million.

Discussions about overvaluing Tbilisi’s public bus fleet started in December 2015 when the EBRD and Tbilisi City Hall announced €30 million would be spend on purchasing 150 new buses for the capital city.

Upgrading Tbilisi’s public bus fleet was one of several projects in the pipeline to improve the sustainability of the country’s transport sector and reduce the effects of vehicle emissions.

As Tbilisi City Hall reported it had a four-year plan to renew the bus fleet in the capital city.
