Kelliçi said that this costs only 6.8 percent of the Municipality's budget. Also, he added that he will invest 5 million euros for the modernization and increase of the fleet, which will reduce delays.

Kelliç's plan also provides for the placement of signs at bus stations that will show the fixed departure and arrival times of these vehicles, thus saving people waiting time.
