The first attempts to launch public transport were taken at the turn of 1959/60. For this purpose, a Chausson bus was purchased from the demobil. Unfortunately, in the next two years the bus was standing waiting for renovation. Due to the fact that one bus would not be able to transport employees to work at the same time from several directions, local PKS was asked for help, which launched several courses from Warlit Wielkie and the Plebiscite housing estate.
In 1973, under the leadership of Professor Jan Podolski, a “public transport study for the city of Ostróda” was made. In the same year a committee was set up to organize and launch public transport. The commission’s tasks included determining the course of the line, designating the bays and stops, preparing the parking plan and accepting drivers for work. A year later, Ostróda received five San buses game judi online terpercaya .
By a resolution of the Municipal National Council of May 21, 1974, the Municipal Transport Department was established at the Poviat Enterprise for Municipal and Housing Economy. The resolution established the number of routes and the price of tickets, which was PLN 2. The first buses to the city street left on June 17, 1974. The main task of the plant during this period was the delivery of employees for the construction of Zakłady Mięsne w Morlinach.
From July 1, 1975, in connection with the reorganization of the state administration, ZKM moved from PPGKiM to the Voivodship Municipal Transport Company in Olsztyn. In October 1976 from the WPKM the plant received an inter-city bus type Autosan. A year later, another three buses arrived on the state.
In 1984, after nearly four years of work, a new bus depot at ul. Grunwald. At the same time, the outdated buses Jelcz 272 MEX and two Autosany were withdrawn. In their place came from the WPKM buses after the main repair.
The popularity of public transport can be proved by the number of passenger transports from the following years:
- 1974 – 506 thousand passengers
- 1975 – 960 thousand
- 1980 – 3.35 million
- 1983 – 4.5 million
In subsequent years, the depot continued to expand. A parking yard has been hardened, warehouses and a petrol station have been built.
