DAEWOO made 70 large-capacity buses put into commission on the route number 162, 219, 306 and 309 in Baku, a source from Azerbaijani Transport Ministry said.

Earlier, 89 buses were put into commission on the route number 14, 54, 70, 125, 137, 169, 285 and 325. A total of 1,000 large-capacity buses was planned to launch in Baku.

Small and medium-capacity buses are replaced with big-capacity buses of Korean DAEWOO production, more than 200 units of which have been received recently, the department said earlier.

At present the Azerbaijani Transport Ministry Avtonagliyyatservis Department is developing new routes of bus traffic and if the need arises in the direction of some routes, changes will be made.

The process of removing small buses in Baku's streets started last year. If earlier this innovation only concerned small vehicles, but now this process concerns also medium-size buses. Full replacement of low capacity buses with medium and large will be completed by late 2009, the source said.
