A new kind of public transport may appear in the capital of Ukraine during the Eurovision Song Contest. Since the International Exhibition Center in Kiev will be the venue of the competition the waterbuses may be launched for transportations.

“It is possible to unload the Dnieper bridge and to transport passengers from the right to the left bank of river by waterbuses, which will then remain in Kiev. Security issues are being discussed, river patrols will be established,” said the Minister of Culture Yevhen Nyshchuk.

September 9, the Organizing Committee has announced the city that will host the international song contest "Eurovision-2017". The winner is the capital of Ukraine - Kiev.
