THE CASE OF SUBURBAN MISSIONS
Air quality and noise are issues all across the territory. And since suburban transport affects entire urban areas, given that the vehicles involved in suburban transport link the outskirts to the city centre, the choice of gas in this sector is crucial.
Range and distance travelled daily are other important factors. Natural gas provides significant advantages over electric buses, with their relatively limited range.
Large cities can benefit from a good balance between city-centre transport provided by electric or CNG buses, with suburban areas served by CNG buses or coaches.
LOW ENTRY CONCEPT
Low-entry buses are the right choice for the suburban routes given their versatility: they have the greater seating capacity needed on longer routes, while the low-floor section makes for faster passenger flows and easier access for commuters with reduced mobility.
