Council Approves New Buses for Community Transport Needs

New Buses to Revitalize Transport in Kormakitis and Karpasia

In a decisive move to improve the transportation infrastructure for communities in Rizokarpaso, Kormakitis, and Karpasia, the Council of Ministers approved the purchase of two new buses on Tuesday. This development comes as a response to the pressing concerns raised by the head of humanitarian affairs for missing and trapped persons last November.

Transport Minister Alexis Vafeades underscored the urgent need to procure new buses to serve the populations in these regions. With 30 seats designated for Kormakitis and Karpasia, and 50 seats allocated for Rizokarpaso, these buses are set to address the daily transit demands of the residents, particularly those internally displaced. Vafeades announced, “These new buses are expected to be put into service within the next 18-20 months,” ensuring that residents will soon have improved access to essential services such as hospitals in the free areas.

The decision to invest in new transportation comes on the heels of escalating maintenance and repair costs for the existing fleet. Vafeades highlighted that the current expenses have become unsustainable, making it clear that the acquisition of new buses is not only a matter of convenience but also of economic necessity. The move promises to provide stranded populations with reliable transportation options, which are vital for their integration and mobility within the community.

As the regions of Kormakitis and Karpasia anticipate the arrival of their new buses, there is a palpable sense of optimism among the residents. The upgrade is seen as a significant step towards enhancing the quality of life for those affected by displacement, ensuring that their transportation needs are no longer sidelined but instead met with a sustainable and efficient solution.
