The launch of the new commercial Chisinau – Colonița public minibus route, which was announced for August 1, was postponed.
Contacted by IPN for details, mayor of Coloniţa Angela Zaporojan said the National Motor Transport Agency didn’t issue the necessary certificates. “This is something new and I don’t know how to issue a certificate. It is a municipal route, but the contest was organized by the Coloniţa mayor’s office. It is problematic,” explained the mayor, noting neither route No. 117 didn’t run even if she asked that this old route should be provided until all the problems are solved.
Mayor of Chisinau Ion Ceban said the residents of the suburban village Colonița of Chisinau municipality should be provided with public transport as the existing commercial route No. 117 has now only two units of transport, but 80% of the villagers work in the city and need transport.
