Danish transport operator Vikingbus has ordered 45 MAN Lion’s City 12 E buses for the Denmark capital’s public transport service.
The newly ordered buses are expected to be deployed in Spring 2023.
Another coach company, Anchersen, already operates 25 MAN Lion’s City 12 E buses on Copenhagen’s central bus route 7A, which carries more than 4.3 million passengers every year. Meanwhile, Vikingbus itself has been using 12 MAN Lion’s City E buses on routes in the Danish cities of Odder and Skanderborg.
“The issue of sustainability is essential for Vikingbus, which is why it was quickly decided that particularly environmentally friendly city buses should be used on the newly acquired bus routes,” says Rudi Kuchta, Head of Business Unit Bus at MAN Truck & Bus. “We are naturally delighted that our MAN Lion’s City E was chosen and that the issue of environmental protection is becoming increasingly important in public transport.”
