Public transport in five major cities of Georgia – Tbilisi, Batumi, Rustavi, Kutaisi, and Zugdidi, resumed work today after a month-long break.
The decision to resume traffic was made by the interdepartmental Coordinating Council for the Fight against Coronavirus under the Prime Minister of Georgia on September 7.
In the morning, passengers began to be served by metro, minibuses, and buses, as well as cable cars.
The rules of travel remain the same – passengers will not be allowed into transport without masks, it is mandatory to observe a social distance. The authorities promise to strictly monitor compliance with security measures.
Public transport has stopped working in Georgia four times already during the pandemic. At first, this measure was in effect from March to May 2020. The authorities also had to suspend the work of the metro, buses, and minibuses from November 2020 to February of this year, and then in the spring – from 3 to 13 May.
This time, due to the sharp deterioration of the epidemiological situation, the work of municipal transport in large cities has been stopped since August 14.
This decision caused protests — citizens complained many times that it was difficult for them to get to work without buses and minibuses, and in Tbilisi even without the metro.
At first, it was announced that the transport operation would resume on September 4, but then the deadline was extended.
