Two new companies will operate on the railroad market in Bulgaria, after they received licenses from the Transport Minister Petar Mutafchiev.
The licenses for the transport of passengers and cargo were presented to "Gaztrade" and "Unitranscom".
Thus, Bulgaria now has 5 operators on the railroad networks, which will create conditions for liberalization, Mutafchiev commented. He pointed out that competition stimulates companies to improve their service.
Up to now the percentage of freight transport carried out by private railroad transporters is small - about 6%, Mutafchiev pointed out. There is no other big transporter in Bulgaria except Bulgarian State Railways, which transport about 35 million passengers, Mutafchiev said.
The development of railway transport is among the priorities of the European Union, because it is ecologically clean and saves us from big traffic jams, the Minister comments.
