Bus and trailer combinations are a rare sight on German roads – but not so in Munich. The addition of 15 new MAN vehicles has brought Munich’s total to 50 – probably the biggest fleet to date. And that’s not all: to satisfy the growing passenger volume over the next few years the transport undertaking is aiming at 100 vehicles. They are also special when it comes to air conditioning: here Spheros has combined two completely different, independently functioning air conditioning solutions, so that the trailer can stay at the depot in off-peak periods, thus avoiding unnecessary energy consumption. For this purpose a REVO rooftop air conditioning unit has been installed on the traction vehicle and a Citysphere electric modular air conditioning system on the trailer.
MVG boss Herbert König: “Our bus and trailer combinations create more space. They offer 30% greater capacity, making them the best tool in the fight against bottlenecks due to ever-increasing passenger numbers. We are further expanding our bus services in a particularly cost-effective manner, while increasing the attractiveness of public transport in general. That is and remains the most effective contribution to a healthy urban climate.”
