READ MOREThe contract was awarded following a competitive tender. As part of the €185m contract, which begins in June 2019, Arriva will introduce 76 buses to the city network with a further six held in reserve.
13 of these buses will also form part of the new electric BRT system, and by 2023 a further 13 electric buses will be added to the fleet.
Arriva will also provide the latest ticketing systems and integrated timetables to deliver quality services to an estimated 16 million passengers in the first year of operation.
This latest contract win follows Arriva’s success in retaining the €550m Pågatågen train services contract in the Skåne region last year, which was renewed for a further eight years until 2026. ■
