The EBRD provided a senior loan of €12 million to the City of Gaziantep to finance up to 50 new low floor compressed natural gas (CNG) buses, a CNG fuelling station and maintenance equipment. The investment was part of the City’s plan to integrate the public transport system by providing feeder bus lines to the newly launched light rail transit system. The project has enabled further public transport integration through the development of a new transport master plan, revision of the existing route scheme and tariff reform.
“Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality has highly benefitted from technical assistance services provided by Aspiro during past years. We especially value proactive risk management, smooth project implementation and detailed guidance and assistance in project monitoring and reporting in compliance with EBRD loan conditions.”
Ahmet Ertürk, Head of Foreign Affairs Department,
Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality
