THE DUO-BUS (DUAL MODE BUS) - A MODERN ENERGY CONSCIOUS AND ENVIRONMENTALLY ATTRACTIVE PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM

DER DUO-BUS - EIN MODERNES, ENERGIEBEWUSSTES UND UMWELTFREUNDLICHES NAHVERKEHRSSYSTEM

The modern, energy conscious and environmentally attractive duo-bus from Daimler-Benz is described. This is a bus which is run in highly trafficked areas by energy from the overhead trolley wire network only, while in other areas it may be operated in two ways: the more expensive, more environmentally attractive option of battery operation (charging during the journey on the trolley wires) or on a diesel motor drive.
