Grupo CIVA, one of the main passenger transport operators in Peru, has added 32 new specialised Marcopolo and Volare vehicles to its fleet. The new buses will be used to transport Mineira Chinalco employees at the company’s Toromocho operation.

“CIVA is a traditional customer and has a fleet of predominantly Marcopolo models. This new supply is very important because it serves the operator’s main passenger transport segment, focused on vehicles with a high standard of comfort and safety concepts,” said Uilian Klipper Rosseti, Commercial Operations Consultant responsible for the Peruvian market.

Of the 32 vehicles, 17 are Marcopolo’s Paradiso New G7 1800 DD model, along with five Paradiso New G7 1050s, five Senior Executive minibuses and five Volare Attack 8 4x4s.

Like the Marcopolo vehicles, Volare’s Attack 8 4×4 minibuses will be equipped with with bio-safe solutions, such as an air-conditioning system with UV-C, an alcohol gel dispenser at the entrance, hand grips with additive antimicrobials and antimicrobial curtains between the seats as part of the company’s coronavirus precautions. The vehicles are suitable for use in difficult to access and unpaved places, and have capacity for 19 passengers.

They have a 4×4 traction system, stainless steel side skirt structure, headlight and signal protection, and batteries moved to the luggage rack, to avoid the risk of a short-circuit.

CIVA has been in business for over 50 years and operates a fleet of over 300 buses throughout Peru.
