Palma's Municipal Transport Company (EMT) is to send all of its old buses, which are currently being replaced, to needy countries in Africa, South America and Eastern Europe. The “Solidarity bus” campaign was unveiled by Joan Fageda, the mayor of Palma, yesterday who added that each of the buses will also be packed full of basic food stuffs, medication and other products which have all been purchased with the help of Palma residents. Fageda said that in total, EMT will be donating 100 buses, 75 of which have already been committed to Kosovo, the Ukraine, Gambia, North Africa and Cuba. The city council is currently working on placing the remaining 25 buses with Nicaragua, Peru and Colombia topping the list. EMT chairman, Pedro Alvarez, explained that with the complete modernisation of Palma's bus fleet, the company wanted to take the operation “a step forward and give a little more by helping needy countries.”
