ASEAG IN AACHEN ORDERS AGAIN 25 VDL CITEAS LLE-120
VDL Bus & Coach has received a second large order from ASEAG (Aachener Straßenbahn- und Energieversorgungs AG), for 25 Citeas LLE-120. ASEAG is responsible for the public transport in and around the German city of Aachen. Delivery of the vehicles is planned for 2019. A total of 52 VDL Citeas LLE-120 will then be in operation in Aachen.
The lightweight VDL Citea LLE 120/255 for ASEAG features a 30+2+1 seating arrangement. In the case of the VDL Light Low Entry, the combination of an environmentally friendly engine with a very low weight provides class-leading fuel economy and reduced maintenance costs. This results in a further reduction of CO2 emissions. In light of the coming German diesel ban, public transport companies have to set themselves the goal of reducing emissions of harmful substances, as VDL says in its press release, and sees its VDL Citea LLE-120 not only an asset for ASEAG but also for Aachen residents.
For more than 130 years, ASEAG has been responsible for public transport in and around Aachen. The company’s original goal still applies to this day: delivering tailor-made mobility solutions. In a deployment area of some 700 km, more than 230,000 passengers are carried every day.
