Together with the cabins, Kyivpastrans will purchase tools, equipment, fast charging systems, spare parts, as well as personnel training services. The purchase is planned within the framework of the Urban Public Transport of Ukraine II project and is being implemented jointly with the European Investment Bank. Also, within the framework of this project, Kiev plans to purchase 20 trams and 100 buses.

The Kiev funicular was opened in 1905. The last time it was overhauled was in 1984.

It is not the first time that Kyivpastrans has announced tenders for the purchase of funicular cabins. The previous auction was in the spring of 2018. The Austrian Garaventa AG took part in one of the competitions, which offered to supply the funiculars for UAH 189 million. The auction was cancelled.
