Solaris Bus & Coach will supply twelve articulated electric buses, model 18, in the coming two-year period 2024-2025. Twelve articulated ebuses will thus join the existing fleet of 150 Bevs signed by the Polish manufacturer for public transport in Poland’s capital city.

The newly ordered buses will be delivered to the capital in four batches in 2024-2025. The first models will arrive in Warsaw in the fall of 2024 and will be used on routes through central parts of the city. The new electric buses ordered will be equipped with Solaris High Power batteries. The buses will be recharged via plug-in chargers and pantographs.

The interior and equipment of the buses will be adapted to current Warsaw vehicle standards. As a result, passengers will have access to a modern passenger information system, will be able to use air conditioning, and will be able to charge their phones via USB sockets.

There will be 39 seats available on board the low-floor buses, 13 of which will be accessible from the so-called low floor, meaning that no additional steps will need to be overcome, which is important for people with reduced mobility. In addition, the buses will be equipped with two compartments for wheelchairs and strollers. The buttons on the vehicles will also be labeled with the Braille alphabet.

The buyer of the Urbino electric buses is ZTM, but they will be used by Miejskie Zakłady Autobusowe, a company that operates public bus transportation in Warsaw.
