MALTA GETS 33 OTOKAR KENT 12M BUSES
This delivery came in addition to 143 Vectio C in September 2015, bringing the Otokar fleet to 176 units on the Malta island. While the 9-meter buses provide flexibility to manoeuvre through various Maltese roads, these new 12- meter buses are designed to carry more people and will be servicing the busiest routes. This compliments the recent increase in bus trips as part of the summer service.
