Opole orders electric bus fleet from Solaris
Solaris has received a new order for electric buses from Poland. The public transport operator of the city of Opole has ordered nine Urbino 12 Electric buses to be delivered by Solaris in the second half of 2024, together with charging infrastructure. Currently, MZK Opole already operates 15 Solaris buses, including five electric ones. Eight more electric buses are to follow in the coming weeks.
MZK Opole had ordered these at the end of 2022, however, the Polish public transport operator notes that the partnership with Solaris extends back as far as 2020. Together with the new order, a total of 22 Solaris electric buses will be on the road in Opole next year, representing almost one fifth of the operator’s total fleet.
In addition to the order from Opole, Solaris has also started deliveries of the 25 hydrogen buses ordered in October 2022 by the transport company MPK in Poznan, Poland. The first two have arrived in Poznan, with the rest to follow by the end this year.
