Free Public Transport in Zagreb

Post from May 2009



Croatia Travel Blog: " Zagreb authorities have just declared that public transport will be completely free in Croatia’s capital city. Zagreb has a highly efficient tram and bus system that is about to become a LOT more crowded, at least in the opinion of  transport officials. The idea is to encourage residents to leave their car at home and leave the city center free of traffic tangles and parking problems. Let’s hope so. Let’s also hope that a few more trams and buses are in the pipeline to handle the increased capacity."

Fare-Free China: "华声在线3月23日讯 (记者 黄煌): "环保车循环运营,便利游客换乘

换乘管理,具体如何实施?据介绍,韶山风景区已成立并运行旅游环保车队,来韶旅游车辆统一停放在韶山风景名胜区游客中心停车场,游客换乘旅游环保车进入景区游览。旅游环保车在景区内实行循环运营,在主要景点设置停靠站点,并根据实际需要设置招呼站。“十一”、“春节”等旅游高峰期,旅游环保车将游客从主、次入口送至景区核心区域入口,游客在核心区域内步行参观。

由于韶山风景区是开放式景区,换乘管理后,景区内居民的出行又将如何协调?刘科表示,旅游环保车之外,韶山还将开通景区环保通勤车,为本地居民和韶山学校学生提供免费公共交通服务。环保通勤车停靠点根据居民居住出行情况设置,与景区外公交车实现无缝对接,韶山市居民凭本人身份证、工作证、学生证等有效证件一证一人免费乘坐。""
