350-400 Passengers Per Night in Sofia's Night Public Transport

An average of 350-400 people reportedly uses the newly incorporated late public transportation per night. About 4,000 people have used it since its launch on April 11, 2018. The information was released by Anton Despotov from the Center for Urban Mobility.

The busiest routes of the night transport are Studentski grad to Obelya and Lyulin to Mladost. So far there haven’t been any reports of incidents or a large influx of homeless or intoxicated people using the service.

Despotov said: “People are starting to recognize the night transport and to use it. Every bus is equipped with a minimum of two cameras that keep track of the behaviour of the citizens, there's a panic button installed for every driver, and additionally, there’s a conductor in each bus. That way there won’t be gratis travel.”

He also said that the timetables will be fixed to include the exact hours for the bus schedule.

There are 4 routes, and all of them have a meet-point at the Alexander of Battenberg Square. Right now the night public transportation is in a test period that will continue to the end of 2018. If the program proves a success, the people of Sofia will be able to use public transportation at night permanently.
