Lublyana with new MAN CNG buses. Recently, a total of 30 modern gas-powered MAN articulated buses have replaced the older generation of articulated and non-articulated vehicles in the Slovenian capital Ljubljana. This offers the local residents a number of benefits: On the one hand, the 18-meter-long buses increase passenger capacity on the most frequented routes. An articulated bus has sufficient capacity for a total of 155 passengers, 35 of whom can be seated.
Extra comfort and safety is provided by a fully flat low floor, a folding ramp, video surveillance as well as a passenger information system with easy-to-read LED displays. Furthermore, the vehicle is fitted with an air-conditioning system and integrated ceiling heating system.
On the other hand, the new MAN Lion’s City CNG vehicles also reduce emissions thanks to the gas engines they are equipped with. Efficient operation is supported by a real-time fleet management system.
For the transport company, putting the new buses into operation marks the beginning of the complete renewal of their fleet. The goal is to gradually replace all Euro 4 buses in the forthcoming years.
