Cuba: Russian minibuses arrives to strengthen public transport in Havana

A batch of 450 minibuses with 12 seats each was unloaded in Havana port through the Haiphong maritime terminal, with a view to strengthening public transport in this capital, where more than one million 400 thousand passengers move daily.

The vast majority of the microbuses are meant to increase popular transportation capacity, while the other will cover the needs of entities and organizations, Guillermo González Quintana, head of MITRANS’ Automotive Transportation Engineering Department, told journalists.

He explained that the acquisition contracts include parts and spare parts for equipment in general, manufactured in the Russian company GAZ and that its arrival is in correspondence with the announcement made last December by the then-transportation Minister.
