German car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz has supplied 25 buses to Tashkent, the country's administration told Trend on Friday.

The supply of buses is being carried out as a result of a purchase agreement signed between the Tashgortransservis Association and German EvoBus GmbH Mercedes-Benz (bus division of Daimler-Chrysler).

According to a representative of the city administration, a reception, transmission and presentation of the new Mercedes-Benz Conecto Low Floor model buses which have been built to the Euro-3 standard, was held the previous day.

According to the agreement, the remaining buses will arrive in Tashkent before the end of October.

A renovation project of the passenger transport system in Tashkent, providing for the purchase of 100 new Mercedes-Benz buses for a total of $18.9 million was approved by the decision of President Islam Karimov in January.
