New bus model to drive in for import expo

400 of the new buses will be added to operation by the end of October.

Shanghai Jiushi Group and Yutong Bus group have developed a new model of bus to better transport passengers during the China International Import Expo, 400 of which will be put into service by the end of October.

The new bus models will, for the first time, be equipped with a round view camera and intelligent driving system. The camera covers all blind spots, giving the driver exceptional vision so that accidents can be avoided.

Meanwhile, the step at the bus doors is only 27 centimeters off the ground when the bus stops, which makes it easier for elderly passengers and people with disabilities to board and disembark.

The bus company is still working on a detailed plan to dispatch the new buses and more tests are needed.
