MAN Truck & Bus have signed a framework agreement with Germany’s DB Regio Bus concerning up to 815 local and regional buses.
The transport company will be ordering up to 435 city and intercity buses worth around Euro 100 million in 2015 and 2016.
For 2017 and 2018, DB Regio Bus has an option for a further 380 vehicles worth around Euro 90 million.
The framework agreement concerns especially modern city and intercity buses in various vehicle lengths and in easy access, low-floor versions.
All vehicles are equipped with powerful, fuel-saving Euro 6 engines.
“This order confirms that our buses and our service fully meet operators’ high expectations in terms of reliability and economy,” says MAN Truck & Bus Director of Sales and Marketing Heinz-Jurgen Low.
“We are looking forward to continuing our partnership of many years’ standing with Germany’s largest bus operator, DB Regio Bus.”
MAN Truck & Bus and Deutsche Bahn have enjoyed an excellent business relationship for several decades now.
DB Regio Bus is responsible for the regional bus and urban transport operations of Deutsche Bahn.
The company is the largest provider in Germany’s bus transport market.
