Eindhoven operator Hermes presented its brand new generation of VDL Citea buses to the public on 27 May following the delivery of the first 32 of an order for 64 of the type from VDL Bus & Coach. The delivery means thatthe operator now has a fully zero-emission fleet in North Brabant.

Hermes regional director Martijn Mentink said: “With these new zero-emission city buses, we are taking the next step towards a completely emission-free fleet in south-east Brabant. The development is also fully in line with the vision of the commissioner of public transport, the province of North Brabant. It is good news both for them and for the residents of our region. It fits seamlessly with the goal of offering completely emission-free bus transport by 2030. And in doing so, our traveller is the main winner because we’re convinced that these new buses will contribute to an even finer travel experience.”
