Patrik Hello there. My name is Patrik Lucan and I am an entrepreneur, a blogger, and a sustainable transport advocate from Slovakia. I fell in love with Armenia on my first trip there in 2017. People always play the most important role in my ideas. Whenever I visit my friends in Yerevan, I see the potential and the will to modernise the country. I have built the Transport for Armenia team which wants to play a part of this amazing historical step. Pavol Kucmas, a friend of mine, and I withdrew all our savings and invested them into this project.

We need your help

We are people like you, individuals who like buses, trains and metro as a cheap and sustainable transport. We created this journey planner to help you use the public transport network. We don't receive any support from the Government of Armenia. Running this project costs up to a thousand US dollars worth every month. The money comes from our own pockets. Database maintenance, technical development, translation into English and Russian and many other little but important things need financing. Our personal savings are limited and in order to keep this site running for a long time we need your help.

“A developed country is not a place where the poor have cars. It’s where the rich ride public transport”

Our values

Public transport has a strong impact on our lives, it improves living standards of all residents, makes the environment healthier and people more happy.
