7 Juli 2011
On Thursday, 14 April 2011, the management of GVB, the public transport company of Amsterdam, and the management of VDL Bus & Coach Nederland bv signed the sales contract for 70 new city buses.
The vehicles purchased by the Amsterdam public transport company are VDL Citea city buses with a continuous low floor, equipped with clean EEV diesel engines. This results in a substantial reduction of CO2, NOx, NMHC and fine particulate emissions. The first buses will arrive in Amsterdam in July.
GVB continuously strives to improve the quality of its service and further develop its products. So in the tender process for new equipment they were not just looking for a good balance between the kilometre price and the quality but also at the technical possibilities and compatibility with the public transport network in the capital city. VDL was chosen as the best all-round partner for the collaboration.
