As part of the contract, Nobina will operate a fleet of 17 electric buses for a period of 10 years, with a key focus on customer experience as it equips all vehicles with security cameras and Wi-Fi.
Nobina has announced that it has been awarded a new contract by Midttrafik to operate and develop city transport services in Horsens and the surrounding areas, in the island of Jutland in Denmark.
In line with the company’s commitment to providing sustainable transit, all services will be operated by electric buses once the contract takes into effect in June 2023.
The contract will last for a period of 10 years, with an option to extend the agreement for an additional four years, and comprises a total of 17 scheduled electric buses.
