2013 9 22 Mit Klitschko

I am big fan of Vitali Klitschko, the boxing champion and the political leader. But I am much less impressed by Vitali Klitschko, the mayor of Киев столица Украины. In almost three years, he has done very little to improve Kiew‘s public transportation system. As Vitali Klichko and Vladimír Klichko know German cities well, I thought they would be interested in bringing the Kiev Transportation Service closer to German cities’ rail and bus service level. But I now suspect that neither Vitali Klitschko nor Wladimir Klitschko actually care much about Public Transportation in either Deutschland or Україна – Ukraine. They have probably always used limousines with or without chauffeurs, and may not be aware of the advantages of good public transportation, as almost everywhere in Germany, and disadvantages of bad public transportation, as almost everywhere in Ukraine. My critique, in a nutshell: If Kyivites would be loosing less time, nerves and energy on moving around in the city, they would solve themselves many of those problems that Vitaly Klichko now wants to solve for the Kyivites. The entire country would benefit from better work by Ukraine’s central bureaucrats. In addition, better public transportation would reduce traffic jams, air pollution and KievCity center rents.
