Keolis Adds MAN NGVs to Bus Fleet



Quote:
The Swedish public transport company, Keolis Sverige AB, is extending its fleet with 181 MAN Lion’s City urban buses, of which 127 will be MAN Lion’s City articulated buses with CNG and diesel drive units. All of the vehicles meet the current, most stringent Euro 6 exhaust gas emission standards. Keolis will introduce the MAN Lion’s City fleet into the public transport network in Stockholm and the surrounding suburbs.
The vehicles will be delivered from the beginning of June 2014 by the Swedish importer Svenska Neoplan AB, who will also be responsible for their servicing and maintenance. Svenska Neoplan AB will also provide ongoing technical support and assist Keolis personnel with training and know-how concerning the buses. (...)

Yep, those are the bendy buses that I took. The interior is pictured above. Took another one tonight actually. Great to see them around Stockholm.

This is great, my friend! You convinced me to try one of the new buses as soon as I come back to Stockholm.

2025 map looks great! Is the grey line to Arenastaden supposed to be a spur of the green line or does it terminate at Odenplan?

New line terminating in Odenplan. Possible extensions north to Täby via Bergshamra too.

New entrance at Odenplan! You can see the start of the entrance to Citybanan. Big improvement! Looking forward to it being finished!



Hornstull metro station had a BIG upgrade last year. Here's the upgraded station with new attached shopping centre.



Waterfront tram ride. Beautiful part of the city.

Today the light-rail system (tvärbanan) got an fully functional extention to Solna station. It is now possible to travel from Alvik to Solna station with a tram and change to a suburban railway line to Märsta or Uppsala (via Arlanda airport) there.

Nu trafikerar Tvärbanan Solna station

Looks like we will have a light-rail ring soon.

As you can also see from the map, Vreten station on Blue line was renamed today into Solna strand. Why they decided to do that? Is that self-promotion of the area?

Yes.

If you're a misantropist, you might say it is an expression of the triumph of love for one's own wallet - the hope is that the new "better" name will make the area more attractive, which in turn would boost the property values there.

The daily Dagens Nyheter had an article last week about these neologism projects going on in the Stockholm area. It's avaliable here: http://www.dn.se/sthlm/sa-doper-de-om-stockholm/. It's in Swedish, but Google Translate tends to be pretty good for Swedish <-> English. Please note that the article is written with a fair amount of irony, making fun of the intentions of the 'perpetrators'.

Where do you see a ring? Particularly, what would the east side of the ring be?

As mentioned I made a map (using Google Map Editor) based on VECTROTALENZIS' updates. The light rail (L/S), marked in red and pink, make some circle-ish scribble. However I don't think this circle will be closed soon, too many disparate systems, even if it were a good idea.

This map doesn't include a proposed Solna-Täby line, as the route and type of this link wasn't too clear, nor if it actually is going to be built.

I did add the south tram link (Älvsjö-Flemingsberg) based on textual description on where they wanted it.

(( If anyone wants to improve the map, feel free. However it seems that the Google Map Editor is even less collaborative than the traditional Google Map editor (lower-case e). In the latter I could just check "anyone can edit". I haven't found that checkbox in Google Map Editor yet, but at least any editor can invite any other editor.

The logic is simple, three layers (that's what you're allowed for free), the existing network, the proposed network, and alternative proposals. ))
