Free public transport successful in Skopje, Sofia considering also

Sofia News Agency: "Earlier, the Mayor of Bulgaria's capital had suggested free-of-charge public transport and a reduction of speed limit in certain areas would help improve the quality of the air when pollution peaks.

A number of cities across Europe have considered or introduced free public transport on a provisional basis as a measure against air pollution.

Skopje, which also took the step earlier this week, reversed it on Thursday, saying dust particles had fallen below dangerous levels."
