The first of 12 electric buses has entered service with Wiener Linien, Vienna’s municipal transport operator, which is converting two routes to electric bus operation by next summer. The 40-passenger midibuses have been designed and developed by Siemens Rail Systems and Italian bus maker Rampini. A pantograph on the roof enables the batteries to be topped up at bus stops.
