Our bus and train fleet

We are constantly investing in the modernisation and maintenance of our bus fleet and trains.

In December 2020, a contract was signed with Stadler for the supply of 8 new trains.

In order to guarantee the new services introduced from the end of December 2020, 36 new buses were purchased.

Based on the study commissioned from SUPSI in 2018 and the pilot project, we will begin our process of converting the entire bus fleet to electric vehicles with the aim of achieving this important goal by 2030.

The new vehicles are Euro 6 diesel-powered and equipped with a braking energy recovery system. Since 13 December 2020, 36 new buses have been in service, including 21 articulated buses and 15 “Midi” type vehicles.
As part of the 2030 strategy for the operation of urban lines, we are also planning to switch to fully electric buses.
