Frankfurt: Solaris City


Bolsward, 18 Juli 2011

Frankfurt has one of the largest fleets of Solaris buses in Germany. Stadtwerke Verkehrsgesellschaft Frankfurt am Main counts on the reliability and longevity of the buses with the green dog and benefits from economic Urbino life-cycle cost agreements. All current vehicles are supplied with Ventura doors.

Frankfurt am Main is renown as a major German and European financial centre, an important business location and a hub for road, rail and air traffic. Frankfurt Airport is among the largest in the world. For the last years, the city has had another highlight to offer: it has almost become Germany’s “Solaris capital”.

Both the 12-metre standard buses (Urbino 12) and the 18-metre articulated vehicles ( Urbino 18) have three doors. The 1350mm wide Inward Swinging door is used for the front door, as for the both exit doors the 1350mm wide Plug Sliding door is applied., this combinations gives a fast and steady passenger flow.

The systems are pneumatic controlled, at the moment there is one vehicle converted from pneumatic to electric controlled. Only the pneumatic cylinders are exchanged for electric actuators, and all the main components do not change .
At the end of this year, Frankfurt’s public transport scene will be expanded with a new attractive highlight when VGF will take delivery of their first hybrid bus with Ventura Rapid Slide RS 1350 entrance and exit door.
