Almost eight years after Belgrade ordered CAF trams, another new order is being prepared - money has been set aside for purchase of 16 new trams, under the plan of re-introduction of trams in the city's downtown core.

Quote:
EXTENSION OF NEW TRAMS AND ELECTROBUSES The city for the purchase of vehicles provided 90 MILLION EURO

Blic | 27. 07. 2017 - 14: 49h
By the end of the year, Belgrade should receive the new 30 articulated buses from "Ikarbus", the first "double" since 2013, when the large contingent of "Solaris" from Poland arrived.

However, the City of Belgrade plans to further strengthen and modernize the GSP "Belgrade" fleet in the coming years. According to the Development Strategy of Belgrade until 2021, which was recently adopted by the City Assembly, by December 2018, 75 electricians should be purchased, with ten chargers. They were supposed to replace the trolleybuses in the central city zone, and for this purchase, 4.33 billion dinars are planned.


However, it is also planned to buy new trams, the first after the purchase of famous "Spaniards". The city would be looking for 16 pieces to help with the introduction of the tram network in the central city zone (Kralja Milana, Terazije, Kolarcev, Vasina, Uzun Mirkova). They should arrive by the end of 2019, and they would cost about 6,77 billion dinars.


Also, within the framework of traffic plans until 2021, the construction of a trolleybus contact network in the streets of Cvijiceva, Takovska, Poenkareova, Venizelosova, Gundulicev venac, Zorza Klemansoa, Dunavska (to the terminus "Dunavska") and Dobracina (to the "Dorcol" terminus) .
Future Line #1

I've just come back home from Belgrade. It's the first time i've experienced such weird aproach to public transportation. The tickets were not to buy at kiosks at the bus stops, or else where, every time we tryed to buy tickets, drivers tryed not to sell them. One said: dont worry about tickets, just enjoy the free ride, the next one said: i've got no change. For my suggestion, to try asking for change to other passangers, the driver answered: no, no, it's my fault, you can ride now without paying.
I have no clue what's going on - but i didnt make it not even a single time to pay the fare...

While strange, definitely not surprising - it's often noted how the city's public transport company, along with Sava Centre congress hall, is one of only TWO public entities (out of 40+) that continuously operate without making a profit.

The Sava congress centre has now been put up for sale, with hope that a private firm running it might have better luck, but there's no easy solution for the public transport company.

Non-predictible and too expensive battery-buses? Terrible mistake!
Why not trolleybuses with auxiliary engine (or supercapacitors)?

I was just in Belgrade and tried doing that but it didn't work, even though the machines had the symbol showing it accepted contactless Mastercard payment. I guess it wasn't activated at the time?

Service has not yet been put into use, it will be by the end of the year. First, old validators must be replaced with new ones, only new buses have them right now.

That language is not in use since the breakup of Yugoslavia. BusPlus system uses Serbian (cyrillic) and English language

Remnants of Yugoslav era and our pandering to various ethnic groups.
Now, as new vehicles arrive, latin script is being phased out slowly

Should be both at least for lines running in the city center, tourist purposes. I manage cyrillic at least the letters so that I would know where I am but some latin would definetely help.
