Since March 2015 China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and Kyrgyzstan will link the international bus service. Two buses will run regularly between the two countries, which share a common border.
As recalled by the newspaper "Shanghai Daily", like the bus service already once existed ten years ago. Routes eliminated because of declining passenger traffic, but they decided to resume in connection with the growing economic ties between border regions. One bus will operate between the cities of Kashgar and Jalalabad, and another - between the cities of Osh and Artush reported in the transport department of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.
These four cities are important points in the "Economic Belt of the Great Silk Road", which is actively promoting China. According to the Transport Department Sinyatszyana, Artush-Osh route will serve mainly to trade relations, and Kashgar-Jalalabad - to transport workers from Kashgar in Jalalabad, which is a highly developed agricultural area.
