CHISINAU, June 18 /ITAR-TASS/. Moldovan bus companies have cancelled virtually all the seasonal routes that linked the capital Chisinau and a number of other cities and the Black Sea resorts in neighboring Ukraine.
The bus operators say demand for the tickets to those destinations has become practically non-existent.
“While dozens of busses overfilled with passengers would be leaving for the seaside resorts in the Odessa region every day last summer, only one bus bound for the township of Zatoka is cruising now,” Ivan Andrusca, a deputy director of Chisinau’s Northern Bus Station told reporters.
The busses servicing the only remaining route are almost empty or have two or three passengers aboard at the very best.
People do not make reservations for trips to the beach towns as they are simply afraid of spending leisure time in Ukraine.
Chisinau’s bus stations account for almost 75% of all the international bus routes in Moldova.
