The planned BRT system will consist of several sections and will cover a total length of approximately 150 kilometers. Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz do Brasil subsidiary has already been awarded a major order for more than 90 Mercedes-Benz articulated buses , as well as special BRT services (type O 500 MA), for the so-called “Transoeste” BRT section that has been commissioned in early June 2012.
In addition to its modern product range for passenger transport, Daimler and its BRT expert team offer support during the planning, implementation, and further development of customized Bus Rapid Transit concepts. The team includes specialists for traffic and transport planning, engineers, strategists, and local experts from around the world. As a result, the Group is present with its Mercedes-Benz buses in all key BRT systems worldwide, including those in São Paulo and Curitiba in Brazil, Bogotá in Colombia, Istanbul in Turkey, and many other cities.
