Tracking Ukrainian Transportation Companies on the Information Highway
Eurasia Foundation’s Transparency and Accountability in Public Administration and Services (TAPAS) project recently launched a new e-Service for transport companies in Ukraine. Through an online account, cargo and passenger carrier companies can now apply for a transport license; extend, update, or cancel their license; and change information about their company in the government’s records. Importantly, ordinary citizens and journalists can use a vehicle’s license plate number to access information about its owner, including if the carrier has the appropriate license, the term of its operation, and the contact information. This e-Service was developed by TAPAS in partnership with the Ministry of Infrastructure, the State Service on Transport Safety¸ and the State Agency for E-Governance.
