Yes, they are owned by Promet Makarska. Basically, they are the terminal station for fossils and rejects from Makarska. What happened was that in 2005 Makarska bought Autoprijevoz Sinj. In the contract, they agreed to buy a fair number of new buses to refresh the company, which was in debt, but still operating. What they instead did was loan them their older buses. Slowly, they killed Autoprijevoz (whose buses were white with a yellow stripe, hence the logo) by scrapping their old vehicles, taking over their lines and, most importantly, infrastructure (bus station in Sinj). As there were some legal problems, in 2013 they just transferred all buses to a new company they formed, Promet Sinj. However, no actions were taken because problems can just be swept under the rug when you know the right people.

That's one of the reasons why Autotransport Šibenik should be gone from the city lines at the end of the year, to be replaced by a new company formed by the city government. 11 new buses have already been agreed - the first C12 Lion's Citys in Croatia.

We saw a similar picture near a Facebook campus in Menlo Park in California: a lot of big buses carrying employees. But when COVID-19 stroke, everybody went to work from home, those corporate bus drivers lost their job. Driving a city bus turned to be a more stable job. Meanwhile, in nearby Palo Alto many Tesla employees kept coming to work in COVID days, though fraction of their usual number. Those are probably engineers working in laboratories, they can't work from home.
Мы видели похожую картину возле кампуса "Фэйсбука" в Менло Парке в Калифорнии: туча больших автобусов, возивших работников. Но когда пришёл COVID-19, все фэйсбукеры перешли на удалёнку, водители этих корпоративных автобусов остались без работы. Вождение городских автобусов оказалось более стабильной работой. В то же время, в соседнем Пало Алто многие служащие "Теслы" продолжали ходить на работу даже в COVIDные дни, хотя малая часть от их обычного числа. Это, наверное, инженеры, работающие в лаборатории, они не могут работать из дома.

All these buses are transporting BMW employees back home from work. There's an insane amount there every day, I probably saw like 40-50 different buses within half an hour and there were still a lot more on the other side of the factory.
