VDL ENTERS CROATIA WITH DELIVERY OF 7 VDL CITEAS LLE-120
VDL Bus & Coach made its first city bus delivery in Croatia with 7 VDL Citeas LLE-120 which were hand over to the Croatian public transport company Polet d.o.o. from Vinkovci, a city in the far east of Croatia. Delivery took place via VDL importer Presečki Grupa d.o.o.. All buses are equipped with an Euro 6 engine and will be deployed on various city lines in Vinkovci.
Mijat Kurtušić, director of Polet is convinced that with these 7 new VDL Citeas the quality of public transport in his area will improve. “Unfortunately, the number of public transport passengers is decreasing in Vinkovci. With the arrival of these new buses, which offer a lot of comfort and safety, we can change the habits of local residents.” With this project, Polet also wants to facilitate the transport of people with disabilities, people in wheelchairs and the elderly.”
The 7 VDL Citeas LLE-120 for Polet have a seat layout of 38+3+1 and an extra-wide seat upfront. The Citeas are double-glazed and equipped with a large Thermo King DS-805 air conditioning system.
The Croatian transport company Polet d.o.o. embarked on organised passenger transport in 1964. From a company that initially operated 5 buses, Polet has grown into a major carrier in Vukovar-Srijem, Croatia’s most easterly province.
