ACHIEVING SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY
Metropolitan areas all over the world are affected by the rise in transport need that comes with urbanisation. This presents challenges in terms of congestion as well as emissions and pollution that affect both people and the environment.
Much can be gained by reducing the number of vehicles and instead commuting together, something that requires an attractive public transport system. To further reduce emissions, the system has to consist of energy-efficient vehicles running on electricity or renewable fuels, depending on the operation and local conditions. Scania´s buses and services allow for sustainability to go hand in hand with operating economy - a prerequisite for making sustainable transport happen on a wide scale.
IMPROVING OPERATING ECONOMY
Operators in urban environments know the importance of keeping costs to a minimum. At Scania, customer profitability constitutes a foundation for the products and services we develop – always with the human perspective in mind.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY THAT LOWERS COST - A vehicle’s energy consumption depends on several factors. Powertrain performance is of course crucial, as is vehicle specification and product usage. Compared to its predecessor, the new generation Scania buses can reduce consumption and emissions up to 21% - without compromising on performance. Moreover, our driver support services typically contribute to savings of 10%, while our fleet management services enable analysis for further savings.
ENSURING AVAILABILITY - High vehicle utilisation is key to achieving cost-efficient operations. Our buses are built on proven technology and components, resulting in chassis and powertrains that are dependable, durable, and robust while still offering excellent drivability. They are designed to ensure protection of sensitive and expensive components, potentially minimising costly and time-consuming repairs. And our worldwide service network provides advanced repair and maintenance services, supported by outstanding spare parts availability.
EXCELLENT PASSENGER CAPACITY - In traffic planning, travel patterns and the number of passengers travelling in the system are two of many important factors. Reducing the fleet by even a single bus can have a big impact on operating cost, for example by lowering fuel and maintenance costs and the need for additional drivers. With one of the best passenger capacity figures available, Scania buses allow operators to keep these costs down for operators, while also improving passenger flow in the public transport system.
A FIRST-CLASS DRIVER AREA - Urban buses are constantly exposed to the risk of external damage and the work environment for drivers is very demanding. We have therefore developed a driver area that we believe is industry-leading. It offers exceptional drivability and driver assistance systems that enable outstanding vehicle control, thereby increasing safety and helping minimise accidents and avoid unnecessary costs. Also, safety features and excellent ergonomics benefit drivers and address the challenges operators face with sick leave and employee retention.
