SWEDEN VDL Bus & Coach is supplying four Citea SLFA-181 electrics to Keolis Sverige AB in Karlstad, Sweden. The articulated buses will be deployed on the new BRT-inspired line in Karlstad and are due to go into operation on 9 December 2018.

“Of course, it is encouraging that our new buses and the investment in a BRT-inspired line is noticed internationally,” said Mathias Lindgren, Business Development Manager at Karlstadsbuss.

“We worked hard on the specification, design and appearance. We are really happy with the result and are expectant to show the buses for the residents of Karlstad.”
