Burgasbus is the public transit service of the city of Burgas, Bulgaria. It serves the majority of bus routes in Municipality of Burgas (nearly 92%). It also runs to Varna, Yambol, Ruse and Elhovo.

Burgasbus operates both diesel buses and the Burgas trolleybus system. Over 850 employees work for the company.

History[edit]

In 2007, soon after its coming into power, the new management of Municipality of Burgas started subsidizing Burgasbus, so that the company could afford to buy new and comfortable buses and trolleybuses. By now the firm possesses around 200 buses and 20 trolley buses, but still the majority of them are amortized.

An important contribution to renewing the rolling stock has the former mayor of Burgas Mr. Ioan Kostadinov. In 1996 a great purchase was made with 30 brand-new Chavdar buses, made in Bulgaria. In 2005 12 recycled buses were bought. In 2008 another substantial renewing of the rolling stock took place when over 20 recycled buses, 10 recycled trolley buses and 10 brand-new Tedom buses were bought.
