Winter Preparation Day kicks off


The National Transportation Center organized Winter Preparation Day with the Traffic Police Department last Saturday, in front of the Ministry of Roads and Transportation, to announce how passenger transportation companies were preparing for winter operations.
A total of 52 public transportation companies, 47 intercity and seven cross-country companies, participated in the event, along with the Director of the National Transportation Center and directors, engineers, and bus drivers from Mongolian public transport companies.
Winter Preparation Day also introduced the results of the inspection of intercity public transportation organizations which began on September 20.
A total of 780,164 vehicles have been registered in Mongolia as of October 1, 2015. Currently, 924 vehicles and 1,400 professional drivers have established contracts with 43 companies engaged in intercity passenger transportation services for 67 routes. Officials reported that 1,623,000 passengers had been transported as of October 9, which is five percent fewer passangers than last year.
There are 38 buses and trains, belonging to eight companies, regularly transporting passengers along six routes to three countries. These companies managed to transport 132,800 passengers abroad, which is a 1.1 percent increase compared to last year, according to the National Transportation Center report.
An online meeting between local vehicle transportation centers was held on September 30, to execute, monitor, and intensify the winter preparation of the National Transportation Center. Arkhangai, Bayankhongor, Uvurkhangai, Bulgan, Khuvsgul, and Govi-Altai provinces participated in the online meeting and discussed issues related to winter preparation.
The directors of public transportation companies said that they will try to make this meeting regular, as it provided companies with the opportunity to start measures for cutting costs and transferring to a savings mode for public funds.
