Recently, Yutong received the orders of 760 gas buses for Kazakhstan, of which 590 units are purchased by the Shymkent municipal government, and another 170 units will be put into operation in Atyrau city. At present, the buses of the two orders have been delivered, and all vehicles will be put into operation at the end of May and the beginning of June.
The operation of these vehicles will greatly improve the public transport situation in Kazakhstan and create a good public transport environment for the cities. At the same time, the application of clean energy vehicles will also effectively reduce the air pollution in cities and contribute to the urban environmental protection.
As a municipality directly under the central government, Shymkent has a population of 1.01 million and is the most dynamic city in southern Kazakhstan. Atyrau, as the petroleum city of Kazakhstan, is also one of the important cities in the country. In respect of the public transport of the two cities, the buses are antiquated and need to be replaced. It is learned that the models purchased by Atyrau this time are Yutong ZK6108HGH and ZK6852HG, and the models purchased by Shymkent are Yutong ZK6108HGH and ZK6118HGA.
The three Yutong's classic bus models with different lengths will meet the passenger carrying demand on different routes, and serve the local residents with higher quality, helping the upgrading of Kazakhstan's urban public transport system.
