MERCEDES-BENZ AND TRIER SIGNED A CONTRACT FOR 90 BUSES
Within the next seven years Trier's public transport company will completely renew its bus fleet and the Mercedes-Benz Citaro will be the predominant vehicle. Stadtwerke Trier and SWT Stadtwerke Trier Verkehrs-GmbH signed a contract with Mercedes-Benz for the delivery of in total 90 Mercedes-Benz Citaro buses, diesel and or electric.
The first part of the order for four Citaro articulated buses will already be delivered in the course of this year. With regard to a changeover to electrically-powered public transport, SWT has also ensured that they will be able to opt for the eCitaro, too. The contract gives the transport company the option of having ten percent of the ordered quantity of vehicles equipped with a fully electric drive. This would allow the oldest town in Germany to be served by an electrically driven vehicle, particularly in the sensitive city areas. The contract was signed on 18 September by Steffen Maiwald (Member of the Board of Management at Stadtwerke Trier), Michael Schröder (Managing Director of SWT Stadtwerke Trier Verkehrs-GmbH), Rüdiger Kappel (Head of Fleet Sales at Daimler Buses Deutschland), and Christian Fambach (Plant Representative for Public Transport at Daimler Buses).
