The Bratislava public transport company DPB is changing the names of some stops. The new names should be shorter, simpler and more comprehensible for tourists. They will also more reflect their localities and their original names. As of December 13, passengers will not get off at the ŽST Železná Studienka stop, but at the Červený Most (Red Bridge) stop, not at Mlynské Nivy but at Malý Trh (Little Market) and not at Lafranconi but at Lanfranconi.
“In order that the names of the stops are more permanent and not always subject to alteration, we will change selected commercial names to more traditional ones,” the DPB company informed on its website. “Since some localities have disappeared over time and still lack an adequate replacement, we would like to return their lost beauty with the name of the stops. Thanks to research using historical maps, it is possible to return names, such as Tôňava, Dvojstudňové Polia, Zajačie, Lanfranconi and Podvornice.”
