Free Transportation for Pensioners and Invalids to Operate in Novo Mesto

The system of free transportation for elderly people and people with disabilities in Novo Mesto starts working on weekdays. Transportation will be carried out on an electric vehicle.

Retired people and people with disabilities can order an electric vehicle through a free call a few days before the planned trip in order to visit a doctor, go to a pharmacy or to a state agency. The Society of Pensioners in Novo Mesto has already selected 11 volunteer drivers. The use of an electric vehicle and telephone communication services will be carried out at the expense of municipal funds.

The service will be provided within the framework of the municipal programme to protect socially vulnerable categories of the population. Based on the first feedback, the free transportation system will be improved.
