Biogas bus order for Paris07 October 2019

CATP (French Public Transport Central Purchasing Office) and Ile-de-France Mobilités have placed an order for 409 Urbanway Natural Power buses, from IVECO Bus.

The deal was confirmed at the National Public Transport Exhibition, in Nantes, and is the first time an order has been placed via a central purchasing office, without going through transport operators. This new procedure is aimed at standardising the equipment used in the Ile-de-France region.

The 12m biogas-powered vehicles will be delivered between 2020 and 2021, and will operate in the inner and outer suburbs of the Paris metropolitan area.

The buses will be equipped with air-conditioning, CCTV, USB ports and under-seat LED lighting, and have a range of 400km.
