The pilot “Door to Door” project to facilitate the transportation of pupils to schools commenced today.
Under the project, buses pick up primary school pupils from their houses, while an attendant coordinates the process. Upon completion of the school day, pupils are transported back home in the same way.
Transportation Minister Giannis Karousos today attended the first day of the project in Ormideia.
The project aims to facilitate the transport of pupils to schools, assist parents and reduce traffic.
The Minister said the program will begin at “13 elementary schools in all Districts. It is a service with social and other benefits. I spoke with many parents of the route I followed and they were thrilled with the service.”
