183 Urbino 18.75 electric buses with Ventura door systems have entered the streets of Oslo. Solaris has completed the delivery of these buses to Unibuss AS, under the largest contract for articulated electric buses in the history of Solaris. The zero-emission Urbino electric buses with an extended length of 18.75 meters, are all equipped with Ventura doors.
Each bus has an electric Inward Gliding 4th generation door system at the front and electric Plug Sliding 2nd generation door systems over the length of the bus. A total of 732 Ventura door systems have been installed.
A unique feature of the door systems is the use of our LED passenger communication system. The LED strip integrated into the leading edge is visible on the outside of the door leaf and communicates the operating status of the door. It lights up green when it is safe to enter and (flashes) red when passengers should not enter the doors. This clear communication prevents passenger obstruction and improves safety.
This optical communication system also has a daytime and/or nighttime mode to prevent over-illumination.
