Kryvyi Rih Trolleybus Project - Due Diligence

Ukraine Public Transport Framework

     The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRR) has approved the Ukraine Public Transport Framework in the amount of EUR 100 million to support investments in public transport renewal in Ukrainian cities.

      Kryvyy Rih with a population of 630,000 inhabitants is one of the largest industrial centers and the longest city of Ukraine (66 km of length). Its trolleybus fleet, which is a widely presented and affordable urban transport for the citizens, is suffering from under-investment. As in other Ukrainian municipalities, in Kryvy Rih, municipal assets of municipal public transport with significant investment needs are aging, as well as an inefficient public transportation system that requires urgent reforms. Therefore, EBRD decided to allocate 8 million euro for infrastructure modernization program.
