Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS - By Faten Omar

City Group Com­pany yes­ter­day held an ex­clu­sive cel­e­bra­tion to an­nounce the re­newal of Ci­ty­bus fleet with buses equipped with Euro III en­gines.

Na­bil Al-Jeraisy, Vice Chair­man and CEO, con­firmed in his ad­dress dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tion, on the com­pany’s com­mit­ment of im­ple­ment­ing its strat­egy aim­ing at de­vel­op­ing the ser­vices pre­sented to clients in Kuwait.

There­fore, a de­ci­sion of re­new­ing 56 buses equipped with Euro III en­gines was taken with a cost amount­ing KD2.5mil­lion. Th­ese buses were put on trial dur­ing the last two years on Ci­ty­bus’s route net­works where pos­i­tive re­sults, in­clud­ing the no­tice­able re­duc­tion of the car­bon emis­sions, were ob­tained. This step rep­re­sents just the first phase of the fu­ture pro­gram of Ci­ty­bus’s en­tire fleet de­vel­op­ment.

Al-Jeraisy added that th­ese buses are mod­ern­ized and eco-friendly as they help re­duce the pol­lu­tion. Also, they are equipped with the most ad­vanced tech­no­log­i­cal means in ad­di­tion to the GPS de­vices pro­vid­ing ac­cu­rate in­for­ma­tion to the con­trol room, and this en­hances the qual­ity level of the ser­vices pro­vided to the clients.

In ad­di­tion, he in­di­cated the com­pany is com­mit­ted to de­vote its ef­forts to pro­vide high-level qual­ity of ser­vices in an en­deavor to push more road users to use the pub­lic trans­port means as this will lead to al­le­vi­ate the traf­fic con­ges­tion and in­ten­sity on roads, and this means lower num­bers of ac­ci­dents and sav­ing souls. We, in Ci­ty­bus, are proud to achieve more than 60 mil­lion pas­sen­ger jour­neys in this year on the board of our fleet buses. Al-Jeraisy di­rected his thanks to the Traf­fic Gen­eral Depart­ment for their ef­forts to fa­cil­i­tate Ci­ty­bus’s op­er­a­tions, and he highly ap­pre­ci­ated the aware­ness con­tri­bu­tions pro­vided to Ci­ty­bus driv­ers dur­ing the aware­ness ses­sions run by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Pub­lic Re­la­tions Depart­ment in the Traf­fic Gen­eral Depart­ment.

The event was at­tended by Colonel Ab­dul­lah Ghazi Al-Mu­tairi, Di­rec­tor of Co­or­di­na­tion and Fol­low-up Depart­ment (Act­ing Ma­jor Gen­eral Fahd Salem Al-Sh­wea and Un­der­sec­re­tary As­sis­tant for Traf­fic Af­fairs), Lt Col Khalid Ab­dul­lah Al-Ad­wani, Chair­man of the Tech­ni­cal Of­fice in the As­sis­tant Un­der­sec­re­tary for Traf­fic Af­fairs Of­fice, First lieu­tenant Ab­d­u­al­lah AlSal­man Bu-Has­san, and Cor­po­ral Ha­mad Badr Edan from the pub­lic re­la­tions and traf­fic aware­ness depart­ment. At the end, Al-Jeraisy in­vited the au­di­ence to a tour to view the new buses.
