On Saturday August 29, 2015, in the suburban town of Likino-Dulyovo, 98 kilometers northeast of Moscow, a new monument was unveiled. It’s true size model of a yellow bus hoisted on top of a concrete platform. The bus is LiAZ-677 and the monument was installed in the square near the Centre for Development of Children and Young People "Sputnik". On the base is a memorial tablet with the words “Veteran of the Road”.

LiAZ-677 was former Soviet Union’s most famous bus. It ran on all urban roads all over the union for more than 30 years, and gained fans all over the nation. The bus was manufactured by Likinskiy Avtobusnyi Zavod, Russian for “Likino Bus Plant”, or LiAZ in short — a bus manufacturing company based on Likino-Dulyovo, the town where the monument is located.
