Patrik First, let me introduce myself.

I'm Patrik Lucan, a freelance coder, designer, marketing specialist, blogger, traveler, human rights and sustainable transport advocate from Slovakia. In the last years I spent most of the time abroad, traveling around Europe and Asia, and working remotely.

I fell in love with Armenia on my first trip in 2017. Back then there wasn't any online information source for public transport. So I made Transport for Armenia.

You can learn more on Linked in.

Why do we need support?

In the past few years I managed to finance the project through loans from friends. But the pandemic made things very difficult.

And as an independent coordinator working on an independent project, I need to find these funds on my own.

It's a big responsibility to you as well as to my amazing colleagues who have created this journey planner. We don't receive any support from the Government of Armenia.

Route and schedule updates, technical development, search engine optimisation, translation into English and Russian, promotion and many other little important things on average cost 700 EUR each month.

Our values

“A developed country is not a place where the poor have cars. It’s where the rich ride public transport”
Enrique Peñalosa, mayor of Bogota, Colombia

Public transport has a strong impact on our lives, it gives us a chance to get a better jobs, it's cheap, environmently friendly and keeps us socially connected. Read more on the page We love public transport.
