Company Arriva Litas, part of Deutsche Bahn, a global leader of transport and logistics services, has expanded its fleet in Belgrade and introduced 25 new buses with the latest generation of EURO VI vehicles in the city traffic. New vehicles were presented at a ceremony held in the business unit of Arriva Litas in Belgrade, in the presence of a large number of guests.
Modern equipped buses will operate on public transport lines in Belgrade, and they are characterized by diesel engines that enable the reduction of NOx emissions to 67% compared to the EURO V engine, contributing to the control of fuel consumption at the same time. In this way, besides safe and comfortable passenger transport, public urban transport in the capital will also get on sustainability and economy.
