MEGABUS: Each bus can carry 150 passengers

The Mayor of Málaga, Francisco de la Torre, announced five new ‘megabuses’ that will soon be in circulation. With an investment of €1.7 million, the Town Hall continues the renewal process of the EMT bus fleet.

In the last three years, a total of 58 new buses have been incorporated, some Electric-Hybrids and others articulated megabuses. With the recent acquisitions, the total amount invested in improving public transport has ascended to €18 million.

The buses are made by the brand MAN, with bodywork made by Spanish company Castrosua. They are 18.75 metres long, 5 per cent larger that the standard articulated buses, which contributes to improving comfort for travellers.

Each bus can carry 150 passengers and they will be assigned to lines 3, 11 and 15. Regarding seats reserved for people with reduced mobility, the vehicles have a total of five seats.

They also have one extra row of seats, becoming the most comfortable model in the entire intercity fleet. They have photovoltaic panels on the roof, a defibrillator onboard and led lighting with low electricity consumption.
