In Bălți, the second largest city in Moldova, we helped modernise a 20-year-old fleet of trolleybuses to ensure more comfortable and reliable commuter journeys and reduce greenhouse gases.
The local trolleybus company received a €3 million loan from the EBRD and a €1.6 million capital grant from the EU’s Neighbourhood Investment Facility (NIF). The EU funds helped to maintain trolleybus services affordable in one of Europe’s poorest countries. The project followed a previous upgrade of trolleybuses in Chişinău, funded by the EBRD and EIB and supported by the EU, Germany and other international donors.
