Delivery of 18 Citeas LLE for Connexxion

In December 2015, 18 VDL Citeas LLE were delivered to Connexxion and these have been in service in the Dutch HWGO (Hoeksche Waard / Goeree-Overflakkee) concession. The Citeas LLE have a striking appearance in the streets by feature the red/grey R-net package, a recognizable mark of quality for public transport throughout the Randstad, a conurbation of Western Holland.



VDL Citea LLE
The Citea LLE is an innovative, lightweight bus concept, specially designed for the demanding conditions of city and regional transport. The Citea LLE is distinguished by its extremely low net weight, with major advantages being significantly lower fuel consumption in comparison to conventional buses and lower maintenance costs. The fuel savings not only means lower operating costs but also significant reduction of the CO2 emissions. The low floor construction at the entry and exit doors provides optimal accessibility for wheelchair users and passengers with baby buggies. This accessibility is further enhanced by the lack of any floor height changes between the entry and exit doors. The Citeas LLE for Connexxion have a length of 12 metres and feature seating for 40+2+1 and space for around 40 standing passengers.
