Neighborhood routes

 Neighborhood routes (service routes) are designed to serve, in particular, the elderly and mobility impaired people. The routes have been tailored to accommodate the needs of these special need groups, but they can be used by anyone. The routes are operated with low-floor minibuses. On these routes, there is no hurry and when needed the driver helps passengers on and off the bus.

Neighborhood routes provide easy access to local services such as shops, health center, library, swimming hall, etc. The routes have designated bus stops but if need be, you can get on or off the bus elsewhere, within traffic regulations.

There are also stops or places where the buses call only on demand. If you want to get on the bus at such place, please call the number provided in the timetable.

Neighborhood routes operate on weekdays and usually each route operates only on certain weekdays as stated in the timetables.

You can travel on the routes with regional tickets as well as city internal tickets within the city in question.
