The Eighth Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea stressed the need to produce a larger number of means of public transport, including new-type subway trains, trolley buses, tramcars and buses, to promote people’s conveniences.
The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has pushed ahead with the work to fully solve the issue of transport, regarding it as a very important work for providing the people with better living conditions.
So in the capital city Pyongyang the trolley bus started to run in the early 1960s, the subway train in the early 1970s and the tramcar in the early 1990s. They are basic means of public transport in the capital city.
At present, a greater number of better public transport means are produced in this country to fully solve the issue of transport.
First of all, industrial establishments concerned are actively remodelled and modernized.
The respected Kim Jong Un, General Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, acquainted himself with the remodelling and modernization on the spot before setting a next-stage target. And he looked at the new-type subway train, trolley bus, tramcar and bus and guided the trial run of the subway train, trolley bus and tramcar.
Means of public transport are produced and fittings made well to the comfort of the people on the basis of their demand. Besides, the specifications of trial products are further updated and developed.
And more trolley buses and buses are produced to be sent to the provincial seats.
It is the intention of the WPK to solve the issue of public transport means so that the people can get substantial benefits from its efforts for them.
