VDL has secured its biggest Swedish order, for 77 Citea XLE low-entry buses for operation by Arriva in Stockholm. These will be a mixture of 13.7m and 14.5m models. In addition VDL is to refurbish 85 articulated buses which will be transferred to Stockholm from Arriva’s Netherlands operation.

“This new, large order once again confirms our strategy for lightweight concepts, with a focus on the European public transport segment,” says Rémi Henkemans, managing director VDL Bus & Coach.

“The order for 77 new Citeas in combination with the conversion order for 85 articulated buses is also a fine example of strength through co-operation. In this manner both Arriva and VDL demonstrate the benefits offered by larger international companies and the strength of true co-operation.”
