"Today we celebrate an indeed wonderful moment, superb spaces and beautiful architecture. We will expect very many passengers and the building to last for centuries," Linas Skardžiukas, CEO of bus company Kautra , told journalists on Monday.

The premises of the bus terminal will include a waiting area, ticket offices, luggage storage areas, a travel agency and a cafe, with plans to build a small library. There will also be self-service ticket machines and a system for visually-impaired clients. At the parcel terminal, clients will be able to receive and send parcels without getting out of their car.

The new bus terminal features and underground car parking area for 190 vehicles and 100 bicycles.

The reconstruction efforts total at about 9 million euros.

The platform has been calculated for daily flow of 10,000 passengers, including 21 boarding areas serving about 600 buses a day.

The Kaunas bus terminal was closed for reconstruction last August.
