Having won the 73-vehicle tender held by the Department of Transportation of Mersin Metropolitan Municipality  in the past months to ease the burden on urban transportation and use more environmental friendly buses, Karsan aims to deliver 43 pieces in May and 14 pieces in September with the increase in business to deliver a total of fifty-seven 12 and 18 meters long, CNG fueled Menarinibus Citymood buses.

Speaking at the ceremony, Karsan Commercial Affairs Deputy General Manager Muzaffer Arpacıoğlu said, “It is very exciting for us to bring to Mersin, one of the most beautiful cities of the Mediterranean coastline, environmentally friendly vehicles. Our CNG-fueled 12 and 18-meter Menarinibus Citymood buses, which we started delivering shortly after winning the tender, blend in with the historical texture and architectural feautures of the city. The fact that our vehicles will be mostly used by female drivers makes us extra happy, our vehicles are in safe hands.  Promising extra passenger comfort, our Menarinibus vehicles, which we believe will provide significant operational savings to the Mersin Municipality with their fuel-saving, environment-friendly engines, are equipped with high-tech camera and recording systems, collision sensors, high-capacity driver and passenger air conditioners with clean air input, whose supply became more critical during the pandemic, in line with the demands of our municipality. We want to bring the remaining 57 vehicles to the people of Mersin as soon as we can. On the other hand, we will be providing full support to keep the buses in top condition offering help with all the cleaning, maintenance and repair works of the 87 Menarinibus Citymood that we are set to deliver. At Karsan, we will continue our efforts to bring modern public transportation solutions to every corner of Turkey and to provide on-site services with our professional team”.
