17 VDL MidEuros for Nettbuss Norway

On 1 July 2012 the official key handover took place for 17 VDL MidEuros purchased by Nettbuss Norway. Nettbuss will deploy the vehicles in the Hamar-Lillehammer region for regular line service and special needs, like the transport of mobility impaired passengers. The vehicles have seating for 16 occupants plus the driver and can be reconfigured with 9 seats and 2 wheelchair places in addition to the driver's seat. Wheelchair users have convenient access to the bus via a lift at the rear. The MidEuros for Nettbuss are equipped with a clean-burning EEV diesel engine, significantly reducing the emission of exhaust gases and particulates.

VDL MidEuros for Nettbuss
VDL converted the buses especially for Nettbuss, fully adapting them to meet the customer's specific requirements for luxury transport of small groups. The vehicles have a fleet management system that enables Nettbuss to remotely monitor their location and maintain an overview of their deployment as well as the fuel consumption, operating hours and drivers' driving style. The MidEuros are also fitted with a ticket sale system, climate control system, public address system, destination sign and internet connections.

The MidEuro's compact size (the total length is 7.3 metres) makes it highly manoeuvrable and therefore ideal for transport in narrow streets and city centres. With the extra high front windscreen the driver always has a clear view of the road.
