HistoryEdit

Lasta was established on 18 February 1947.[4] In the first two decades of existence, it operated mainly as cargo transporter and partially as passenger carrier. Since the late 1960s, it operated only as passenger transporter.[4]

Today, Lasta provides public transport within the city of Belgrade, intercity routes to all parts of Serbia, as well as international routes to destinations in Europe.[5] Its bus line from Belgrade (Serbia) to Paris (France) is in function over 40 years.[citation needed] With about 1,000 buses and coaches, "Lasta" is the carrier of the suburban transport in Belgrade, Kragujevac, Aranđelovac and other municipalities in Central Serbia. In suburban transport of Belgrade, Lasta takes a part with about 300 buses.[citation needed] Domestically, Lasta owns Lastra Lazarevac, another bus transport company which has around 100 buses. In its ownership, Lasta has 35% of shares of Panonijabus.

In August 2019, Lasta introduced 30 new buses in its fleet, manufactured by Turkish TEMSA.[6]
