The meeting between the General Director of the Scientific and Research Institute of Motor Transport (NIIAT) Alexey Vasilkov and Head of the Kirov City Administration Ilya Shulgin was dedicated to the issue of signing a Contract with the City Administration for the implementation of research work. The NIIAT inclusion into the working group on the development and preparation of transport planning documents for the municipality of the Kirov city, as well as optimizing the urban route network, was discussed in the framework of the meeting. Currently, the city is experiencing a serious outflow of the public transportation ridership which is associated with a decrease of the transport services quality. This suggests the need for transport reform in order to make public transport fast and convenient for residents.
The Institute’s specialists have already begun work and will present preliminary results of the study at the parliamentary hearings on August 29.
