Renewable energy for the majority of the Alborg area's 77 buses
The two networks in Northern Jutland will provide services to the 500,000 inhabitants in Aalborg, the region’s capital, and the surrounding towns. The networks consist of 25 lines and will connect the city with a university, a major hospital due to open in 2022 and an airport for domestic and international flights.
The total fleet of 77 buses, 67 of which run on renewable energy2, will cover nearly 10 million kilometres per year. The fleet is composed of three new Scania bus models including vehicles measuring 12.8 metres (33 seats + 56 standing), 13.2 metres (41 seats + 17 standing) and 13.7 metres (37 seats + 74 standing). 32 of the buses will be equipped with amenities including Wi-Fi and power outlets to improve the passenger experience.
The networks feature 16 depots that have parking, washing and refuelling facilities. An upgrade of the depots is planned for the autumn of 2021.
