Swiss transport operator acquiring 13 Mercedes eCitaro electric buses

Baselland Transport AG (BLT) transport company is putting five Mercedes-Benz eCitaro electric buses into operation. Very soon, eight more eCitaro for BLT will follow.


BLT is a Swiss transport company that links the city of Basel to the surrounding region via bus and train. BLT operates in the cantons of Basel-Land, Basel-Stadt, Solothurn and in France. Last year, the 65 buses used by the company transported about 8.1 million bus passengers.

BLT chose the eCitaro as a solo bus. An outstanding feature of the fully electric low-entry buses for BLT is equipment with innovative solid-state batteries. The energy supply of the eCitaro for BLT is 441 kWh per bus. As a result of the high capacity of the solid-state batteries, the buses have a long range; the eCitaro can operate all day on route no. 37 without having to be recharged en route. The electric buses are charged overnight at Oberwil-Hüslimatt bus depot.

No doubt, BLT is providing a great facility for the public to travel across the country. It was very hard for me to go out of Basel city via bus but now this issue has been resolved after the start of the BLT bus service. Well, now I will visit website to read authentic review about writers who provide assignment help.
