Buses to reach places no bus has before


Cyprus Public Transport (CPT) announced on Monday it will soon introduce a new network of routes in Nicosia using six bus terminals in various areas of the capital.

The company, running Nicosia’s buses, said this will lead to reduced waiting times at bus stops and inside the bus. “No time lost, no stress and all those benefits will be experienced along with the modern Cyprus Public Transport services,” it said.

The new routes are expected to be introduced on January 29.

To achieve this, the company said it will provide six different hubs at Solomos Square, Makarios Stadium, in Strovolos, at the Nicosia general hospital, the Tamasos Station and the Alambra Station. These terminals, it said, will be added to the hubs of the new network. “Thanks to their connection, passengers will be facilitated by having more choices of routes,” it added.

With the introduction of the project, implemented in cooperation with the transport ministry, it said, residents of Nicosia will soon be able to enjoy a new network of routes with buses “reaching places where passengers had no access before” and connecting more areas of the city.

“The aim of this plan is that passengers arrive at their destination comfortably, conveniently and in less time!” CPT said.

This new “European-level network,” it added, will be part of the innovative PAME App. “Those who choose Cyprus Public Transport for their journeys will be able to plan the new routes before they start, and they will also have real-time access to the arrival time of the bus they use,” it said.

The company said that from the first moment it arrived at Cyprus it has had a deep understanding of passenger needs, has been keeping its promises, and is constantly upgrading its services.

It said that even more services are on the way, the next being the Wi-Fi connection to 5G network in all buses and stations of the company.
