Trip to Varna 17.8 & 18.8.2015
« on: 24.06.2015, 13:34:42 »
Hello, I will visit Varna on mon 17.8 and tue 18.8.2015. I know you have old Skoda trolleys still in use, on what lines are these?
From where in Burgas is the bus to Varna going, and is it once every hour? Which station in Varna is the endstation? I would like to know if there are 48h passes for local traffic in Varna? And where to buy in that case? What buses you have in Varna, are there Ikaruses anymore?

Thanks

Aha, I see. So only Solaris trolleys in use? How about diesel-buses, any old still in use?

Yes, only Solaris trolleybuses are in moving.
Ikarus buses aren't in use, maybe they also will be scrapped. Diesel buses in moving- Mercedes O405, O405G, O405GN, O405N, Merkavim O405(G), Mercedes O345(G), Irisbus 12/18, one Mercedes O305G.

Човек не е ли засадил поне едно дърво и не се ли е возил на Икарус не е живял.

Yeah, old Skoda 14tr and 15tr have been out of service since March 2015, but you still have one last opportunity to, at least, take pictures of them - from here, if you stand on the sidewalk or in the grass next to it. This is the trolleybus depot. It is 10-12 meters below the boulevard, so this place offers a great view. :)
edit: This is also a good place to take pictures from.

Ok, thanks! I must visit those places. How about route planner in Varna? Any website or iPhone app? Are most lines in Varna like if I jump on some line and go to end station, I don't have to worry about not getting back? How about tickets?

The price of the ticket in the city zone is 1 lev. There aren't have a daily cards, unfortunately you must pay for every travel by bus or trolleybus. Line 148 is the most regular in Varna, the last stops are in Vladislavovo and Pochivka. Also this line has a stop near the depot of buses and trolleybuses (where you can find Ikarus and Skoda).

Lines  9, 109 and 409 are the lines to the Golden Sands(famous sea resort near Varna). But Golden Sands isn' t in the city area and the bus tickets are more expensive than 1 lev.

Haha, thanks! I have been there in 2000 and 2002, but I was so small it will be nostalgia trip for me :D

If you want to travel by one (or more) of the new Skoda 26, then I would recommend you trolleybus line 88. Part of it's route goes along the tallest bridge in our city. This bridge offers a great, open view to almost the whole city, as well as the sea, etc. Right there, at the bridge, you can see some quick movement at speeds > 45 km/h.
Also, here is one of the busstops along the route of line 88. As you may notice, it's not far from the trolleybus depot with the old Skodas 14 and 15 - the places I told you about in my previous post. :) Almost throughout the whole day (if it is a business day), you will have to wait for no more than 15 min. for the next trolleybus to arrive. On bank holidays - between 15 and 25 min.
Have a nice trip to our country and the city of Varna. Looking forward to seeing your videos from the trip on youtube. :)
