Indeed, though the new mask could look better with just a slight change...like here:

Ah, they'll get covered up by ads anyways.

Two fresh shots of new trams...I remember some initially didn't like the way they were painted, but for me, it fits them & the city perfectly





Another...

I saw it too passing thru by train. It looks like a movie set imitating the facades of the old town, but does not even try to look realistic.

It's combination theme park-movie set. The whole idea is pretty ludicrous, but I think this is good because it's not really permanent, in case New Belgrade railway station in the background of the picture needs to be expanded sometime in the future. This is owned by the city and it will be easy to raze.

Anyone filming on that set will have problems with traffic noise from the road, as well as noise from passing trains.

Sets rarely look realistic when not seen on a screen

It's primarily a movie set, all the other mumbojumbo about it being a themepark is just propaganda bs.

Indeed - and they can look quite nice without that damn grafiti:

Here's one example of a train that just underwent a general overhaul:

Before:


After:



Within the next year or so, new trains should be ordered for the commuter railway so hopefully these bastards will have more respect for them.

Btw, domestic manufacturer Ikarbus has just won a tender concerning delivery of 32 new articulated buses for the city transport company. Contract signing should happen within the next week or so.

EBRD may partly fund purchase of 400 new low-floor buses for Belgrade's public transport firm....

EBRD mulls lending up to 65 mln euro to Belgrade public transport co

16.7.2012 15:47:00 | Author/Source www.seenews.com

BELGRADE (Serbia), July 16 (SeeNews) - The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) said on Monday it is considering lending up to 65 million euro ($79.5 million) to the Belgrade city public transportation company, GSP, for the upgrade of part of its bus fleet.

The project, with total costs estimated at 130.5 million euro, should include the purchase of 280 low-floor articulated (18 metre) buses and 120 compressed natural gas (CNG) single (12 metre) buses, the EBRD said in a statement posted on its website.

435,000 EUR per bus, that seems quite low, is it realistic?

I don't know, how much does an average bus cost these days?

Last I heard, an Ikarbus bus cost somewhere between 160k-220k - though with EBRD partly financing the order, it could go to a foreign firm - like MAN or Poland's Solaris.

The city of Warsaw on the 3rd June 2011 signed a contract for 168 new Solaris buses worth 216 million zlotys. It means that the average price of one bus is 1,286 million złotys, that is some 300 thousand euros. Among ordered buses 116 are 18-metres articulated ones. In January 2012 the numer of modern, low-floor and air conditioned buses on the streets of Warsaw reached 1388 (out of the total numer of 1534 - that's 90,5 %). Do you have similar statistics for Belgrade ?

Interesting stats. I'm sure somebody could come up with such stats fro Belgrade, though I'm also quite positve its nowhere near Warsaw's excellent ~90% rate.
Maybe in a few years, after a couple of more significant orders.

Btw, it's a little harder to come up with similar statistics for Belgrade - mainly because there's more than one public transit provider - there's of course GSP, the main public transport firm that operates the city's trams, trolleys and largest share of buses. In addition, there's Lasta and a large number of private firms. In total, I believe they have some ~1,700-2,000 buses between them.
