Patrik First, let me introduce myself.

I'm Patrik Lucan, a founder of Transport for Armenia. I'm also a blogger, marketer, and digital nomad from Slovakia.

I visited Armenia in 2017 for the first time. After a week in Yerevan, I was about to travel to another city. It surprised me that on the internet I couldn't find any reliable information on public transport. A receptionist at a hotel told me that I had to visit a box office at the central bus station or make a phone call. Without hesitation she helped me with the phone call. Once again - it was year 2017.

I spent several weeks in Yerevan and made some friends there. I felt good about Armenians and thus, I decided to help them as well whilst learning something new and interesting at the same time.

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 cost 700 EUR each month on average.
