VDL Citea LLE buses for Aachen

At the end of December 2015 VDL Bus & Coach delivered 5 Citea LLE buses to ASEAG (Aachner Straßenbahn und Energieversorgungs-AG). ASEAG is responsible for public transport in and around the city of Aachen. One VDL Citea LLE bus has already been in use as part of a trial, since November 2014. During this test phase, the Citea LLE demonstrated that its lightweight construction does indeed result in lower fuel consumption and as a consequence lower emissions of harmful substances.

VDL Citea LLE: an innovative lightweight concept
The main focus of the VDL bus with a lightweight construction is reduced fuel consumption and as a consequence lower overall emission levels. Nonetheless, the buses still of course meet the highest safety standards. Given today’s huge pressure on costs, opting for the VDL lightweight concept is a logical step for public transport operators that have set themselves the dual goal of delivering optimum passenger transport services and reducing harmful emissions.

For more than 130 years, ASEAG has been responsible for public transport in and around Aachen. The company’s original goal still applies to this day: delivering tailor-made mobility solutions. In a deployment area that takes up some 520 km2, more than 220,000 passengers are carried, every day.
