The Metropolitan Transport of Barcelona has ordered a total of 105 MAN Lion’s City buses from MAN Truck & Bus. Mr Rudi Kuchta, Head of Product & Sales Bus and Speaker Business Area Bus at MAN Truck & Bus said that “This means TMB’s most recent public call for tender ended with great success for us, and we are incredibly happy to have been awarded the entire contract.”

MAN will deliver the vehicles to the Spanish transport operators by the end of the year. This includes 49 natural gas buses of the MAN Lion’s City type each with a length of 12 metres, and 26 articulated buses, each 18 metres in length, likewise powered with natural gas. Additionally, a further 30 12-metre-long hybrid buses will be delivered the first vehicles from the new Lion’s City generation of city buses featuring MAN EfficientHybrid to be driven in Spain. Thanks to a bid that was impressive in all areas, MAN Truck & Bus was able to win all three lots.

Once the 105 modern city buses have been delivered, over 50 percent of the TMB fleet, which is currently around 1,140 buses strong, will be MAN vehicles.

Approximately 350 hybrid buses are already in the TMB fleet. Additional hybrids as well as resource-sparing scheduled-service buses with natural gas drive are to join the fleet in the future.
