LPE “Stacioni i Autobusëve” J.S.C. Gjakova has been established in 1955 with its activity in transportation services, precisely the transportation of passengers in urban area, suburban area as well as the international, until 1992 when with forced measures everything sank, leaving after the war (1999) nothing but the chassis of busses, destructed and stolen inventory as well as demolishing in the facility, both in the mechanical workshop and in the Bus station.
Immediately after the war, the staff gathered to unify for the recovery of the enterprise and its reorganizing, even though the sacrifices and the lack of primary tools was prevalent.
It is worth mentioning that the enterprise is registered at Civil Administrative Office of UN in Gjakova, named “Kosovatrans Company” Gjakova with business number 80174942, which is used even today, while starting from 2002 it gets under KPA (former KTA).
As time went by, the old busses that were provided got broken to a point that due to the inability and lack of financial means to buy new ones, exercising the function of transporting passengers had to be stopped unwillingly, but what continues even to this day is the provision of services in scheduling in the Bus Station, for operators working in different lines such as suburban, inter-urban and international, using the departure from the passengers station. At any time they are provided with right service based on traveling schedules permitted by the Ministry of Infrastructure of Kosovo. Since 30.05.2012 with the Law on Public Enterprises 03/L-087 published in the official gazette no.13 of the Republic of Kosovo it was decided that municipal bus stations be in municipal ownership, thus Gjakova bus station is under the ownership of Gjakova municipality 100%.
