The buses will be delivered by Daimler is MultiClass guise and will be used on two local bus line bundles in the Taunus area. The buses will comes as both vertical and with raked windscreen models, equipped with a lift to enable the access of mobility-impaired passengers and with full complement of seats.

“You and your team have made a powerful statement and convincingly demonstrated that a private company can be successful in a call for tenders even for large bus line bundles,” added Heinz Friedrich from Daimler.
