The Catalan population of Olesa de Montserrat, in the province of Barcelona, has acquired an 8.5-meter long Mobi Low Entry to provide urban and interurban services. The minibus has a central low floor with a ramp and a metro-type double door, which makes it very accessible for people with reduced mobility, wheelchairs and strollers.
A minibus that improves the city’s transport service
The unit was presented last week and, according to the town councillor for Mobility, Jordi Martínez, it is a “clear commitment to public transport and to making the urban bus service more attractive”.
The new Mobi Low Entry minibus is much more sustainable than the previous ones available to the municipality and is equipped with bicycle racks.
The Mobi Low Entry minibus is a class II minibus, built on an Iveco Daily 70c18 chassis and with a capacity for 26 passengers, prioritizing seats. It is also equipped with a second emergency door at the back of the vehicle.
The operator that will provide the service with this minibus is the T.G.O. (Transports Generals d’Olesa) company which is part of the DIREXIS group
An improvement of the global service
This new vehicle will help the capillarity of the population’s public transport service, since it is accompanied by an improvement in the service stops, adding 10 more stops and going from 28 to 38 in total. Also, an increase in the frequency of buses and an increase in connections with the Generalitat railways that link the population with the neighbouring zones and with Barcelona. All these improvements will give the citizens of Olesa a much more efficient and sustainable transport for the population.
