AMMAN — The Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) has floated a tender to operate, maintain and administrate 100 public transport buses.

Amman Mayor Yousef Shawarbeh said that having a high quality public transport network that serves citizens is “the biggest challenge” for the capital, which GAM seeks to overcome through its new transport plan, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported on Sunday.

He noted that the company has already bought the busses and is planning to buy a further 35 busses in the second half of 2019, Petra added.
