In addition to the EBRD loan, Pavlodar Tram Management Company (PTMC) will receive a grant worth up to Tenge 910m from the Kazakh government, and the Akimat regional government will also contribute to the project.

The funds will enable PTMC to modernise infrastructure and renew around a third of its tram fleet with the acquisition of 25 new low-floor LRVs.
The 1524mm-gauge network is electrified at 600V dc and currently has a fleet of 86 trams.
