Buses make cities smarter

Urban mobility solutions

Get time on your side

In urban areas around the world, unsatisfactory transport systems lead to economic, social and environmental problems. Bus systems by Scania provide rational, cost-efficient and sustainable solutions for mobility challenges. And they’re designed for flexibility and scalability.

Increasing urbanisation

In 2030 over 60% of us will be living in cities.

Get your city back

A bus system can be implemented in stages, with minimal disruption. And delivers a return on your investment faster than any other transportation system.

High capacity

A bus rapid transit solution can transport 50,000 passengers an hour

Better quality of life

A rational, cost-efficient bus system brings measurable mobility and environmental benefits. These in turn attract residents and businesses, leading to an improved economy and – ultimately – better quality of life.

Time-to-market

A bus system can be implemented in stages, with minimal disruption to your city. It can also deliver a return on your investment faster than any other transportation system. Scania provides the competence you need right now to rapidly turn your vision of a better commute into reality.

Profitable solution

A bus system offers cost-efficient mobility by using road space efficiently. Unlike rail, it can also be built on existing road infrastructure. Bus systems maintain higher average speeds and have higher passenger capacities than a traditional bus operation.

Time to clear the air

Every journey is different, but the goals are the same: Finding the best way forward to sustainable travel. Today the transport sector is a major source of global C02 emissions, as well as local particulate and NOx emissions. That means we can work together to reduce these emissions and improve air quality, today.

Diesel power without diesel fuel

Today, renewable fuels deliver cost-effective driveline performance and reliability that demanding customers expect while also significantly reducing CO2 emissions. Our robust drivelines and modular design technology give customers dependable, commercially viable options with six alternative fuels – some also available in combination with innovative hybrid technology.

Autonomous transport

Scania is at the forefront of innovative solutions and self-driving vehicles are one of the many puzzle pieces that Scania is developing on the road towards safe, sustainable and fossil-free transport solutions. From auto-stopping at station platforms to self-driving buses in BRT lanes and on public roads.

Flexibility with platoons

Using inter-vehicle communication, heavy vehicles are allowed to form fuel-efficient, aerodynamic formations, following a lead driver. Platoons open the possibility for shorter, attachable bus units, giving the flexibility to adjust capacity both to and from the BRT system as well as during peak and off-peak hours.

Sustainability around the world

5 things we learnt on 5 continents

Uptime is the only time that matters. Competitive total operating economy requires extremely high uptime. When we opened our South East Asian hub in 2004, we created both a local and regional support organisation. And through our global network we can provide a parts supply chain that means you don’t have to wait.

Get everyone on board. Introducing a BRT system in Johannesburg would solve the congestion problems caused by minibus taxis, but it would also take away the livelihoods of their operators. To win them over, these operators were included from the early planning stages. They were offered new jobs and opportunities in the system.

Travel in style. In many older European cities, aesthetics are as important as economics. In cooperation with Van Hool, we developed the Scania Van Hool Exqui.city. This is a high-capacity, articulated bus styled to look like a tram. It still runs on ordinary roads, but provides a striking look that combines new and old.

Stopping doesn’t have to slow you down. Cuautitlán Izcalli, Mexico, is one of the most densely populated areas of one of the world’s largest cities. Scania articulated buses operate along a 21-kilometre, 42-stop route – arriving every minute during rush hour. Keeping up this pace meant taking ticketing off the bus. All payment is done before boarding, so that each stop only needs to last long enough for passengers to get on and off.

Next stop. In Adelaide, Scania buses travel at 100 km/h on the world’s fastest guided busway. These speeds are safe because the busway removes all other traffic elements. But what if we could do without the busway? Scania’s Research and Development Department is working on optical guidance systems that turn ordinary roads into guided busways.
