Scania Bus–Sustainable City Transport

City Bus

Urbanisation, congestion and CO2 emissions are rapidly growing problems that affect the whole planet. Scania is prepared, willing and ready to satisfy these challenges.

The trend towards urbanisation – moving to huge cities – suggests that that population, and thus traffic density, is continuously increasing on a world scale. Logically speaking more traffic means that a lot of CO2 emissions, which directly influences climate modification.

“In the long run, it can not be possible to continue using private cars for transport in the identical method we have a tendency to do nowadays,” says Jonas Strömberg, Director Sustainable Solutions at Scania. “Public transport systems – such as Bus Speedy Transit (BRT) – can need to play a larger role.”

These days, more than fifty percent of the globe’s population lives in massive cities and this trend is increasing. Health problems caused by the increasing emissions from traffic are laborious to ignore. A lot of deaths worldwide per year are linked to air pollution than to automobile accidents. It’s estimated that globally some two million people die from air pollution annually.

This incorporate a rapid transition to cleaner vehicles and a lot of sustainable fuels. Nowadays there are only 3 biofuels commercially obtainable – bioethanol, biodiesel and biogas. Bioethanol is sometimes the most value efficient and sustainable on a world level. And native biofuels is also a welcome remedy for the increasingly expensive oil and diesel import that many countries – like India – struggle with nowadays.

Scania sees biofuels collectively key means to decarbonise significant duty transport, and has products offered for buses and trucks for all 3 biofuels. If made consistent with correct sustainability principles, biofuels also contribute to native energy security whereas creating local jobs and serving to rural development.

“This may be a unique product portfolio,” says Strömberg. “We will continually notice the most competitive biofuel resolution for every market and for each specific customer case.”

Rapidly growing

The Latin American market is blazing a path in the employment of BRTs. Brazil is investing in expanded public transport systems previous the soccer World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016, and this will predominantly take the form of bus systems. In Bogota, Colombia, BRT system Transmilenio managed to achieve over 45,00zero passengers per hour and direction using traditional 18-metre articulated buses, which includes a passenger capability at the same level as most Metro systems.

Another sensible example is Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. The more than one,00zero town buses use no fossil fuels whatsoever, and soon  waste collectors and distribution trucks will also follow suit. The result is cleaner air, improved health of voters and additionally substantial reductions of CO2 emissions.

Scania’s efforts to transition to greener transport solutions additionally embrace driver coaching and fleet management systems which will help lower fuel consumption, and therefore lower emissions. Together with ethanol supply and infrastructure partners, Scania can provide a whole turnkey package for sustainable serious transports in cities.

Bogota, Colombia.

“With our solutions with vehicles, certified sustainable biofuels, and infrastructure, we have a tendency to make it simple for operators, authorities and municipalities that want to travel green, each for public transport also urban goods transport,” says Strömberg. “It all starts, but, with the can of the native decision manufacturers in cities, companies and elsewhere to clean up and become oil independent.”

When Scania launches its new Citywide vary of town and suburban buses, one aim is to form bus transport additional engaging to the public.

Delivery of Scania buses


When Scania Benelux got an order for 211 buses to be prepared for operation in Amsterdam inside 9 months, potency was crucial. The answer was to line up a brief workshop and pool resources.

On eleven March bus operator EBS phoned Scania Benelux to mention that EBS had won a young to control a regional bus network in Waterland, north of Amsterdam. Scania was invited to produce the new buses that were required.

The catch was that the buses had to be commissioned 9 months later, on the night of eleven December. Scania Benelux went to work.

Special measures

Eventually the whole order came to 211 units, and special measures were required to induce the buses striped, fitted with all their auxiliary equipment and pre-delivery inspected as they arrived in Amsterdam from assembly in Poland and China.

“We have a tendency to have a lot of service workshops, however they were unable to address this task on top of their regular workload,” says Scania’s Senior Account Manager Bram Stakenburg who had a key role in Scania’s tender team.

“The buses were on a good schedule, and we wished to be close to the customer therefore we have a tendency to could deliver them efficiently. That’s why we have a tendency to decided to line up a short lived workshop.”

The choice fell on an anonymous hall with four arched aisles, a facade of brown steel sheets and a moderately large front yard. The hall, located in an recent industrial space by the docks just north of Amsterdam’s town centre, has currently been demolished and became one of EBS’ native bus depots.

Full action

However in November 201one it was full of buses and service technicians in action. “They came from 5 workshops inside a radius of 50 kilometres from here and commuted from their homes,” says Stakenburg.

The first four service technicians were on web site by mid-August and during the final month before delivery there were fourteen at the workshop. During that final spurt they were supported by 3 colleagues from Scania’s bus production unit in Poland, and one from Higer Bus Company in China.

Before there was anything to figure on within the temporary workshop, the buses had to be engineered and delivered there.

“The specifications were settled on what would normally be the ‘style complete’ date, which is most likely unique, however we have a tendency to created it,” says Product Sales Manager Lennart Savehed.

He worked on the Scania OmniLink specifications through the whole tender, while his colleague Claes Hallkvist took care of the Scania Higer coaches.

A serious approach

“The main reason that we have a tendency to got the order is that we have a tendency to took the tender specifications very seriously,” says Bram Stakenburg. “We tend to had the full package, with financing and everything.”

His colleague Bas van der Zanden agrees. As manager for Buses and Coaches in Benelux he additionally had a key role in the tender team.

“We have delivered a whole resolution to EBS,” says van der Zanden. “EBS wasn’t gift here initially, so we have a tendency to supported them in several ways, together with finding this house for them.”

Vehicle safety
Active or passive, optional or built-in, you can rest assured that with Scania safety features, you and your passengers are always in good hands.
Active safety is all about making the driving of your vehicle as secure as possible, with the aim of minimising road risks, collisions and other incidents that could lead to injury. Active safety is centred around giving the driver better feedback and control. To this end, we at Scania are constantly at work to improve visibility, handling, braking and stability. Passive safety focuses on design aspects that minimise the consequences resulting from a collision – consequences that affect the driver, the passengers and the occupants of other vehicles. This includes structural integrity, instrument positioning and dispersion of impact forces. Together, this dual approach creates an effective buffer around each driver, to protect against both the risks and results of driving accidents.
Safe design
We constantly test and evaluate the structural integrity of our vehicles

Rollover testing
To better ensure passenger safety, Scania has conducted a unique rollover test. The test was performed according to the European requirements specified in ECE R66, which specifies that deformation of the bus body during a rollover may not compromise a pre-determined survival area. Calculations are continuously performed as new buses are developed.

Side-Impact testing
Scania’s proactive approach to the improvement of passenger and crash safety was affirmed the instant that a car travelling at 40 km/h hit the side of one of Scania’s city buses on the company’s test track. The model in question was the OmniCity – Scania’s low-floor city bus. In the absence of a comparable European standard, the test was carried out in accordance with the provisions of the US Standard Bus Procurement Guidelines.

This standard specifies that penetration of the bus by the car under these conditions must not exceed 75 mm. This was achieved by a comfortable margin. The car also survived the test well, with the passenger compartment fully intact after the crash. Authentic crash tests like this verify Scania’s design calculations and also help to build a bank of experience for future generations of buses.
