Buses and coaches bring people together. They play an important part in the tourist trade. They are the backbone of local passenger transport. They are not tied either to rails or to fixed operating times, so that an optimal service can be provided at all times. They are flexible, economical, can be used anywhere and, thanks to a full range of types from minibus to articulated bus, represent a tailor-made solution for every passenger transport task.

In their safety equipment, their fuel consumption, their low emissions or their use of alternative driveline technologies, modern buses and coaches feature the very latest motor-vehicle technologies. Not surprisingly, they are among the safest and most economical of all means of transport – and also offer their occupants a very high standard of comfort.
