Design a high efficiency coach?
Coach operators face high cost when offering bus travels that are not booked out, or specialized bus types, that have high idle times. Also the driver's work brakes are causing troubles for them as well as passengers. The drivers themselves have various needs towards their workplace: overview, storage, ergonomics, personalisation are the most important ones. The goal is to create a high efficiency coach focusing on all involved stakeholders - operators, drivers and passengers.
Modular coach & bus service
MAN Start-up is a modular bus system that focuses on the needs of bus operators. The basic bus can be extended through three modules. Thus, luggage storage, equipment, number and distance of seats can be adapted to any kind of journey and user need. The possibility to hand over the steering to the bus ahead enables the driver to spend the breaks in the cockpit.
