As from 16 June 2019 13 VDL e-buses will operate on the new HelsingborgsExpressen in southern Sweden. The VDL Citeas SLFA-181 Electric are the first electric buses for the city of Helsingborg. VDL Bus & Coach will deliver these electric articulated Citeas to Arriva Sweden, which is the public transport operator of this new BRT line. The successful implementation of this large, complex project has been realised through close cooperation between concession grantor and regional public transport authority Skånetrafiken, Arriva and VDL Bus & Coach. As turnkey supplier VDL Bus & Coach is also responsible for delivery and implementation of the charging infrastructure.

This new express line will provide passengers with a more attractive public transport option as they will be able to travel more quickly and comfortably. The zero emission buses will contribute to a cleaner environment and produce less noise than conventional diesel buses.

Mr Fredrik Dahlborg, Managing Director VDL Bus & Coach Sweden, said that “VDL Bus & Coach is very proud and grateful to have been selected to partner with Arriva and Skånetrafiken for the new HelsingborgsExpressen. This project to establish a BRT line is an exciting initiative. We are confident that the VDL e-mobility solutions for Arriva Helsingborg will be appreciated by the passengers and contribute to attracting more people to use public transport. As European market leader in the field of e-mobility, we are pleased to be adding Helsingborg to the long list of cities where we have provided our turnkey solutions, known for their high reliability and low operating costs.”
