The project is to involve: purchase of 9 low-emission buses (5 hybrid buses and 4 diesel Euro 6 ones), construction of a transfer node located at Majkowska Street in Kalisz, equipping selected bus stops with dynamic LED passenger information boards as well as ticket machines, designating/ modernizing 3 bus bays, constructing bicycle paths, modernization of street lighting increasing its energy efficiency within three housing estates in Kalisz: Majków, Chmielnik and Dobrzec as well as an information and promotion campaign (a set of activities aimed at encouraging the residents to limit their use of passenger cars and choosing public or non-motorized transport, namely cycling or walking during every day trips). The project involves activities aimed at implementing the postulates of low-emission strategies. It results from the Low-emission Economy Program established for the City of Kalisz. Its direct objective involves the improvement of the quality of air in Kalisz by developing a low-carbon public transport system. The project is to develop awareness of the city residents that a passenger car is not necessary to travel around Kalisz in a comfortable, safe and efficient manner. The initiative is to result in a wider use of public transport than before and to increase the significance of cycling and walking within the city. Consequently, the objective is to reduce the air pollution caused by emission, noise reduction and decreasing transport congestion and improvement of safety on roads.
