“Together with the department and the Ministry of Transport, we applied for the purchase of railcars. In fact, we will get 100 new sections. But the purchase was postponed to the next year,” said the director of TTU.

Plans for the possible replenishment of the city electric transport fleet became known in mid-November 2021.

According to officials, the purchase must be coordinated with the Government of the Russian Federation. Then it was assumed that all the necessary procedures will take place in 2022. But now they will have to be postponed for a while.
