In order to provide basic services to vast areas of scattered populations, it is very common in the Nordic countries to use minibuses and vans equipped with different services that are brought closer to scattered populations. This is the case with this very special minibus. A library-bus mounted on the structure of a Mobi Low Entry, with a central floor recess and double-pane door with metro-type opening. Built on an Iveco Daily 70c18 Euro VI chassis, this vehicle will be used as a mobile library in Falkenbergs, a town in southern Sweden.
A project of Indcar and Kiitokori
The project has been a collaboration between Indcar (body builder of the minibus structure), Kiitokori (a Finnish company that carries out transformations of special vehicles) that has been in charge of making all the interior furniture and the town hall of Falkenbergs, which will fill this mobile library with books and operate the service in this Swedish city.
The interior of the minibus was equipped only with the flooring, electrical installations, a sink and the entire driver’s seat so that Kiitokori could install the colourful furniture and other elements such as projectors and computers.
A way to get essential services to the scattered population
Minibuses are a very practical and versatile way of bringing different services to every corner, from medical or cultural facilities to food stores. A wide structure inside, in a compact and accessible vehicle are essential aspects that make minibuses ideal for this type of service.
