Urban trans­port

This is a bus.

The beating heart of the city

And so much more.

Urban buses aren’t just a mode of transport.


They’re a vehicle for change. A way to empower civilians to live, work and engage with their communities and environment.


But they’re even more than that. 

One bus can carry the same number of people as 60 cars

In a city, this equates to around 9000m2 in roads and parking

Leaving more space for parks, nature and the community

While decreasing CO2 emissions by up to 92%

Find out why we believe a bus is so much more than just a smart transport choice.

City and inter-city buses that take you further

Lower fuel consumption and more uptime for a better total operating economy.

Energy efficiency that lowers cost without compromising on performance.

Optimal passenger capacity for better passenger flow and smaller fleet sizes.

Attractive, robust vehicles you can depend on for more cost-effective operations.

The journey to sustainable mobility

We're driving change in the transport industry

With increasing urbanisation and transport demand, traffic congestion, noise, CO2 emissions and pollution are rising, affecting both people and the environment.


Driving change is a challenge, but to us, change is not an option - it's a necessity.

Cleaning up the big smoke, one mile at a time

Environmental impact can be minimised by choosing the most efficient and sustainable option for the local conditions - from renewably-fuelled and hybrid to fully electric powertrains.

* Optimal CO2 reduction compared to diesel, from a well-to-wheel perspective (not including emissions from battery production for BEVs).

 With renewable electricity – 55% with the current EU electric grid mix.

Powering the shift to an electric future

For a more sustainable world, electrification will play a vital role in the future of transport.

Electric buses are already a reality in urban areas around the globe.

As charging infrastructure and battery technology improves, the range and capability of electric transport will continue to expand.

Electric bus systems

In implementing electric bus systems, no one solution fits all.

Each city or route has unique conditions, and each needs the right product specification and charging solutions that best suit their needs.

With a deep knowledge of both electrification and bus systems, Scania can advise and assist with every aspect of the e-mobility implementation process.

Welcome to the future of transport

The world is facing unprecedented challenges, from climate change, environmental pollution and economic instability to health crises and inequality.


With urban mobility, real change can be enacted at the local level, improving the health, wellbeing, safety and inclusion of citizens. But if you want to invent the future, first you have to imagine it.


We can transform decades of urban sprawl, car-centred planning and pollution into a world of connected, people-focused cities vibrant with community, accessibility and reclaimed green spaces.

Imagine a future where transport is intelligent, electrified and sustainable.

One where vehicles are autonomous and flexible, serving our changing needs by day and by night.

Could you imagine it?

We did.

But this is just the beginning. It's a long and exciting road ahead - and it all starts here.
