MAN LION’S CITY GL CNG BUSES FOR COPENHAGEN

Trafikselskabet Movia (Movia), a major Danish public transport agency serving Copenhagen and the surrounding district is deploying 41 articulated MAN Lion’s City GL CNG buses on the new BRT line in the city’s north. Since Movia does not itself own any vehicles, Arriva will be operating the line on its behalf.

With room for up to 150 passengers and five automatic sliding doors, the buses will help to speed up local public transport in Copenhagen as they run from Herlev through the city centre to the airport. With more than 20 million passengers a year and up to 75,000 passengers a day, the ‘City Line’ is the busiest line in the north of Denmark’s capital.

The MAN Lion’s City GL A40 CNG’s design combines high passenger capacity with extremely rapid passenger flow. The 18.75 metre long city buses have five 1,250 mm wide, double-leaf swivel sliding doors and an optimized electric drive.

The 310 HP (228 kW) city buses are fuelled with biogas. This means that MAN’s Lion’s City GL A40 CNGs have extremely low-emissions, making them a climate-friendly and economical mobility solution for urban transport.
