Scania's Sales Manager for Egypt Magnus J Andersson said, "this is Scania's first city bus delivery in the country, and marks a strong return to the Egyptian market."
The company said, buses K 3101B 4x2 with automatic gear changing are built for 35 seated passengers with ample space for standing. They will be delivered in cooperation with EAMCO over the coming six months.
It also said, the delivery "forms part of a major bus fleet renewal programme by the Cairo Transport Authority," and that the new buses are "built for safety, durability and heavy-duty performance, which are essential for the roads and climate in Egypt."
