The Directorate of the Universiade noted that Games participants (athletes, judges, technical delegates, etc.) will be served by 519 units of transport.
"We prepared the main and alternative routes, estimated the timing of movements and planned the police support. The main principle is efficient logistics of the Universiade with no impact on comfort and everyday life of city residents" – said the Head of Transport Department of the Directorate of the Universiade Ghani Tastanbekov.
The guests and city residents, who during the Universiade might decide to use their individual transport, should remember that based on the request of FISU and according to the worldwide practice, the 500 m safe zone will be established around the venues for entertainment events. That is why car owners will find it more convenient to use parking lots, including those next to the shopping malls, and from there they can get to the sport venues by public transport.
