Mini solution. Maxi difference
“We’re delighted at how popular the Kranvaj has become: 2,500 passengers now use it every month – all for free!”
Bo Karlsson, CEO Arriva Slovenia
The Kranvaj electric vehicle, Slovenia
The Passenger Transport Authority for Kranj wanted a simple demand responsive service so that the elderly and mobility impaired could easily get around the pedestrianised city centre for free.
An environmentally friendly solution
We therefore developed services using the Kranvaj electric vehicle. It runs from 08:00 to 19:30 all year round and can carry five passengers and luggage, as well as strollers, wheelchairs and pets.
The service follows a regular circular route, connecting the main parking spot at Huje and the city library with other centre hotspots. Passengers simply hail it or call a dedicated mobile phone number.
Take-up of this free service has been strong with c. 2,500 passengers a month. We’re exploring the option to introduce a second vehicle, helping to make Kranj become a cleaner, greener and more accessible city.
