"The CapaCity L is our solution to the traffic problems in densely populated areas. It is the longest single-jointed European bus. It is also environmentally friendly – no other diesel-powered bus emits less CO₂ per passenger“, explains Hartmut Schick, manager of Daimler Buses. The CapaCity L meets the needs of the transport operators exactly. Ulrike Riedel, Hochbahn board member for personnel and operations: "We are pleased about the increasing passenger numbers. At peak times we cannot increase the frequency of our services, which is why large capacity buses such as the new CapaCity L are an extremely interesting option to us."
This year, Hamburger company Hochbahn will become the world's first transport operator to test the new Mercedes-Benz CapaCity L in live operations. The large capacity bus will be used on Metro bus route 5 for this purpose, the most-frequented bus route in western Europe.
