VDL Bus & Coach is to deliver 59 Citeas LLE-127 to Transdev Sverige AB which will go into operation in June 2019 in northern sectors of Stockholm. And in June, VDL will also deliver 25 electric articulated Citeas for urban traffic in Umeå, in northern Sweden which will be operated by Umeå Kommun and Transdev Sverige with Västerbottens Iän.
“We are familiar with VDL’s high-quality public transport product range,” says Niclas Flodin, technical and operational management director, Transdev Sverige. “The good experiences with the VDL Citea LLE in the Umeå concession, especially regarding its low ‘Total Cost of Ownership’, also made us decide to choose VDL Bus & Coach again as our partner.”
The order is one of the largest that VDL Bus & Coach has received in Sweden.
