Monday, 30 March 2015
Yordanka Fandakova, the mayor of Bulgaria's capital, announced on Saturday that Sofia Airport will be accessible by underground from April 2. Thus the underground will cover the distance between the airport and the central bus and railway stations in 15-20 minutes, the mayor said in an interview for private bTV station. Fandakova confirmed the information, announced by the director of Sofia Metropolitan on Friday, that the metro extension to Business Park Sofia will be launched on May 8.
The mayor revealed that public transport vehicles in Sofia were renewed at an advanced pace, with 66 new vehicles already in use and another 60 to enter into service until the middle of the year. Asked whether she was planning to run for a third term, Fandakova stated that it was too early to predict and for the time she preferred to focus on advancing the completion of the current projects.
