25 Synergys for Nobina in Sweden

Swedish passenger transport company Nobina has signed a contract with VDL Bus & Coach bv for the delivery of 25 Synergy double-deckers. The order was obtained in co-operation with VDL Bus & Coach's Swedish partner VDL Bus Sweden. VDL Bus Sweden will handle the further execution of the order and the delivery of the vehicles to Nobina. This contract is the largest order in the history of VDL Bus & Coach for the Swedish market. It is also a breakthrough for VDL in terms of buses for Swedish intercity services. The double-deckers, which run entirely on biodiesel, will be used to provide the intercity service between Norrtälje and Stockholm, a line with a length of around 75 kilometres and 7 stops.

Double-deckers
The Synergys for Nobina have seating for 84 passengers. The vehicles will be customised for the customer in conformance with Swedish public transport requirements, and shall therefore include such features as a wheelchair space and a wheelchair ramp. Both the lower and upper deck are 185 cm high. The vehicles also include video surveillance, an alcohol lock for the driver, route indication screens and a ticket system.
