Considerations on the probability of abandoning trolleybuses in Chernihiv

16.04. Public Chernihiv

"If you knew the likelihood of getting significant European funding, it would be worthwhile to switch to electric buses ... This technology is more expensive. An electric bus costs about 420 thousand euros. I have not seen prices for electric buses that are below 300 thousand euros ... We have considerable expenses for the restoration of the overhead line, the supporting poles, this whole economy ... Considering that all this has to be done, it is possible to refrain from this expenditure and opt for bigger ones - to buy electric buses and base stations where their charging would be organised. Selling trolley buses, of course. We have a large number of old trolleybuses, and new ones, relatively new ones, we have about 30. That would make sense. But these are dreams during the war. ", Chernihiv Mayor Vladislav Atroshenko said in an interview with Public.

For the first time in 20 years in Ukraine resumed transportation of mail by rail

2.04, CTS

It took only five days to organize the first transportation of postal items by rail.

On April 1, for the first time after a 21-year break, state owned company Ukrposhta sent mail by rail. The first postal race was sent to Kyiv from Lviv.

"Logistics chains need to be reorganized, and the railway is obviously the most reliable and predictable solution. During the war, especially because highways have become more dangerous and travel time is longer due to checkpoints," UZ JSC commented.

"The development of rail transport is in line with EU policy, which aims to double the share of railways in multimodal transport by 2030 to reduce congestion and CO2 emissions," the company added.

Reminder, that for the first time in 25 years the Netherlands has returned to mail by rail. This is due to the goal of PostNL - to reduce CO2 emissions by 80% per kilometer compared to 2017.

In 2016, Oleksandr Pertsovskyi, a member of the board of JSC Ukrzaliznytsia, expressed the opinion that now, under normal conditions, it is not profitable to use rail transportation for mail in general, as it complicates the supply chain. However, transportation of mail in mail-wagons is possible in case of force majeure.

1.04, Suspilne News, Source: nakipelo.ua

The possibility of launching local bus routes is being considered in Kharkiv. The mayor of Kharkiv Igor Terekhov reported about it.

"I will definitely not start the metro, because it is a shelter for people. As for surface public transport, I think about it. There are some fears, now I will look at the situation, because when there are crowds - we are afraid of losses," said the mayor.

He noted that some services may be local or special.

"And we are already doing this: for example, to bring people to the market. It was like that, we took people out of the shelling zone on our red buses. Today we deliver food with them," Terekhov said. "We have to pick up people so that they can get a pension in another department. We are currently organizing such routes, but locally. We are doing this on purpose, without announcing that the enemies do not know and do not bomb."

The damage to the transport infrastructure of Ukraine is currently estimated at $63 billion. Public transport of Ukrainian cities, the most exposed to shelling and bombing, also suffered.

30.03, Suspilne News, Source: the mayor of Mykolayiv

Since Monday, April 4, Mykolaiv is to return a mandatory fare in municipal public transport. In private minibuses it remains payable through martial law.

According to Oleksandr Sienkevych, the return of the fare in public transport is a necessary measure, because otherwise the transport will not be able to run on the routes.

"From Monday, we will have to return the fare collecting in public transport or stop its service. I understand that times are difficult for people, but they are also difficult for transport companies," said Oleksander Sienkevych.

Until April 4, travel on public transport will remain free. Public transport includes "green" buses of "Mykolayivpastrans", and also all electric transport: trolleybuses and trams of "Mykolayivelektrotrans".

The fare in communal public transport was abolished on February 24 with the beginning of a full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.

How public transport works in Sumy

March 28, Suspilne News,

Private buses in Sumy have stopped running since the start of a full-scale invasion by russian troops. The trolleybuses last were on routes on March 3. Later, buses performed only special service, and trolleybuses remained in the depot, because they did not have enough voltage in the network. The first minibuses in the city began to carry passengers on March 26.

Lyudmila, also from Sumy, says that the lack of transport in the city was very much felt: "We need to buy some products, and I think this war brings people together very much. So I go out I didn't stand there for an hour or two. Literally 5-10 minutes, people pass by and take me."

Hennadiy works as a driver on route 13, for the first time since the beginning of the attack on Sumy region he went to work last Friday. Now, he says, there are 5 buses on this route: "People are already satisfied, they say: thank you. Yesterday was more fun, today is even more. I made about 5 hours of service, it's curfew, people try to ride until noon. And then less and less, it all depends on patronage."

According to Iryna Kryachko, there will be 8 trolleybuses on the lines from 7:00 to 17:00, with an interval of 30 to 60 minutes. This time may vary depending on the situation in the city. Municipal buses remain involved in transporting people along "humanitarian corridors" and special routes. For the period of martial law travel in public transport is free.

"Elektroavtotrans" works in Lviv

March 24, Vezha TV Channel

Public transport runs, but with changes. And citizens are advised to get used to the slightly changed schedule of municipal buses.

First, there are now far fewer buses on the city streets. And all because a large part of the municipal fleet is involved in helping the army and war victims. Fuel shortages also affected the work of Elektroavtotrans. Although gasoline and diesel have fallen by about a quarter of a percent due to lower VAT, there are still some difficulties with fuel delivery. As with spare parts for buses. This is actually the reason why we had to reduce the number of buses.

Nevertheless, the traffic schedule was adjusted to the curfew. After all, rhythmic schedules are sometimes hampered by "air alarms," say EAT drivers. And sirens on the routes are not uncommon. Sometimes a few per shift.
