Delivery of three VDL MidCity buses to Cars Charlot of Entreprises Finand

At the end of January 2015, VDL Bus & Coach France delivered three MidCity buses to Cars Charlot located in Choisy-au-Bac (France). The vehicles have been deployed for the ‘CYPRE’ public transport service in the Crépy-en-Vallois region. Five VDL MidCity buses were already in service on these urban line service routes.



VDL MidCity
The VDL MidCity was developed entirely for public transport and includes a multifunctional area with a low floor that is ideal for a configuration with standing room or for wheelchairs. The buses are very suitable for various types of passenger transport on a small scale. Conversion to low floor bus, a speciality developed in-house, offers a wide range of possibilities. The MidCity buses for the ‘CYPRE’ public transport service are based on the MB Sprinter. Cars Charlot has opted for a model with eleven seats, with room for ten standing passengers and one wheelchair. Its compact dimensions (total length is 7.36 metres) make the MidCity highly manoeuvrable and therefore ideal for city transport.


Cars Charlot Entreprises Finand
In February 2009, Cars Charlot joined the family business Entreprises Finand, which was founded in 1919 by aviator Victor Finand. Today, Entreprises Finand is led by Stéphanie Parsy. The company has 130 employees, including 100 drivers and a fleet of 120 vehicles of which twenty-four are VDL buses. Entreprises Finand ordered its first Futura in 1982. The most recent order was for a Futura FMD2 with 59+1+1 seating, which is used on regular intercity lines. The VDL buses are highly valued by Entreprises Finand because they have a more luxurious look and feel than buses that are typically used.
