Bratislava’s inhabitants and visitors will be able to get a ride in a double-decker bus starting Monday, July 15, as the city transport company will obtain one such vehicle on loan for a two week trial period.

After the two weeks, during which the bus will be free of charge for passengers, further potential use of the bus will be decided upon, spokesperson of the Bratislava Transport Company (DPB) Agáta Staneková told the TASR newswire. The low-chassis blue Sírius bus, featuring a retro design, has been borrowed from the Prešov-based MT-Troliga company. It is four metres high and 10.5 metres long, and is accessible to disabled people. The transport company wants to test its usefulness and capacity in the city centre.

“Due to its parameters and capacity ... it will surely be enjoyed by regular mass transport passengers, as well as tourists,” head of DPB Ľubomír Belfi told TASR. He believes the bus has the potential to make summer transport in Bratislava more attractive. The route shall start near the historical building of the National Theatre, continuing through Štúrova Street, Pribinova, Karadžičova, 29. augusta Street, Kollárovo Square, Staromestská, SNP Bridge and back to the SND building. The bus will shuttle between 12:00 and 19:00.
