Biogas-electric hybrid bus arrives in Bergen
Skyss, the public transport authority in the Hordaland region of Norway, has invested in a 24 meter bi-articulated biogas-electric hybrid bus as part of the BBB extension stage project. On October 17th the bus touched Norwegian ground for the first time in sunny Bergen.
The bus is manufactured by Van Hool in Belgium. On October 17th a freight ship carrying the "super bus" arrived in Bergen, Norway, from Belgium. A media crowd had been invited to greet the newcomer, the biggest bus ever to drive the streets of Norway. The bus will be tested by Skyss before being put into ordinary service on bus line 9 in November.
